I'm a film editor/director and PhD researcher in film practice at the University of Edinburgh.  In 2020, after six years as a senior video editor at Globo Network, the leading Brazilian television production company, I graduated with an MA in film editing (Kino Eyes Erasmus Masters). I contributed to TV Shows, promotional campaigns, movie trailers and short films, including the drama Three Graces (2020), which screened at Tiradentes Film Festival and São Paulo International Short Film Festival, among others. I have also worked as a multimedia journalist specialising in social issues and directed the short documentary Newcomers (2013), which premiered at Rio de Janeiro International Short Film Festival. In 2022, I was selected for the talent development programme of the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale Talents).
I am conducting practice-based research on forced displacement and border-crossing narratives in creative documentary film, developing my first feature and nurturing a newfound interest in film curation and programming.
I am a local of Edinburgh, Lisbon, and Rio de Janeiro.
