Summary
I have a bachelor’s degree in Advertising and Publicity from PUC-RS (Brazil), having worked for many years in the creative department of several advertising and marketing agencies. In 14 years of work experience, I have acquired many technical skills in art direction, graphic design and some illustration.

In 2014, I was the co-founder of the first Liberal Arts initiative in Brazil, called Confraria de Artes Liberais. I was a lecturer in at least three conferences held between 2014 and 2016.

In the same year, I founded "Editora Concreta", a Brazilian publishing house specialized in classics and high culture titles. Its first 15 books were all launched through crowdfunding campaigns, collecting around $200,000 from more than 4,000 pledgers. At Concreta, I work as publishing manager, editor, marketer, print producer, and book cover designer.

Finally, in 2016 I moved to United States, where I am currently finishing a MBA Program at the ISU, expecting to graduate in 2018 May.
