I was born in Santos/Sao Paulo/Brazil where I started surfing at the age of 14. In 1998 I moved to Hawaii and lived there until 2011. I then had the pleasure to surf and photograph daily life in one of the most beautiful and extreme places in the world, the North Shore of Oahu. Now I live in New Zealand where I've discovered the soul of surfing in a place still mostly unexplored. I've fallen in love with the culture and beauty of this country. It is a privilege to live in a place where I can surf in the morning, go for a drive, and be snowboarding that same day.
