I am a documentary photographer and freelance photojournalist based in Vancouver, Canada. My passion for nature and the visual arts led me to a photography career while I still lived in Rio de Janeiro.
When I was growing up, I used to express myself by drawing comic strips and cartoons, and creating visual stories became a hobby. After many years of drawing, I got used to the frame format, and transitioning to photography came naturally.
Photography allowed me to explore the outdoors and meet people and places I wouldn't have otherwise. Photojournalism arrived later in my life, adding a sense of purpose to my work and allowing me to keep developing my storytelling skills.
My work has been published by National Geographic, The Globe and Mail, The Green Gazette, Canadian Geographic, Amanhã Magazine, and other Brazilian and Canadian news outlets. Please visit my clippings page above for the stories and photos.
