I was Born and raised in Brazil in a town called Goiania on May 13, 1968.
At the age of fifteen I found out my first talent of being a photographer after receiving my first camera as a gift from my mother. Since then I can never stop taking pictures.
In 1988 I got married, and had two children.
I moved to New York with my family in 1995,a year later my family and I moved to Miami, Florida. I have been living in Miami since.This is where I raised my children and discovered many other talents, that I haven’t known I had, it has helped me in many ways, moving my way around in many fields, such as an Executive Chef, Event Consultant, Web and Graphic Design, Public Notary, Wedding Officiant, local News Paper, Magazine, Photography Business as a Professional Photographer and writer. All these helped me to know who I truly am, and what I want and where I want to be.
In 2001 I became a certified Photographer in the Art of Photojournalism at Miami-Dade College. This is where I discovered that we can’t dwell into the past, and that we must grow with the advancing technology and to go Pro in the area of Digital Photography. That was when I decided to buy my first professional Digital camera. It wasn’t easy retiring my expensive film cameras. But after switching to digital, it had also helped me become completely computer literate.
During this time I had also became specialized on Wedding photojournalism stile and spent years fine tuning this craft.
My most deepest desire is to capture with your help, all memories necessary to show the world all that I know as an artist and experienced photographer.
Thank you for considering me to be the eyes and hands, capturing your special moment that will last forever.
My mission is to be the professional that you want me to be without loosing one second of your memory along with my best talents and skills that I have to offer, delivering high quality, creative photographs that you will absolutely love, adore and not be able to look away.
I’m certain that you and those you care will be more than pleased, assuring that the future generation will be greatly thankful for having all the memories captured in time, because a few years from now you will realize that, you can not go back.
I will love if you would allow me, to help make all the most treasured moments become more meaningful for the future.
I want to thank you, and hoping to hear from you soon!
