My first love: I started composing music
for instruments when I was 17 years old.
And I still like it.
I think songs like matching two poems together.
I started to sing Brazilian music when I was 19,
then I started to “explore” other worlds.
During my career I was really lucky
to compose music for great brands.
Here you can listen some of my works.
Mixing sounds came, for me,
as a natural consequence of creating music.
So, I started to work as an audio producer, too.
