I am from the city of Santo André, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, where I lived for 18 years. I currently reside in Columbia, Missouri, USA. I graduated with a degree in International Photojournalism at the University of Missouri in May 2021, and in my four years at the university I was able to perfect my skills in photography, photo editing, web design, writing, and video and audio production. During my years studying I was able to volunteer for Pictures of the Year International (POYi), College Photographer of the Year and Missouri Photo Workshop. My interest is photographing and editing stories related to social, cultural, political and international issues. I am currently an Assistant Photo Editor at NPR.
