About Me

"No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."

Have you ever heard an artist (or a writer) saying, "Oh, I've drawn (written) all my life." And you think, "Gosh, another one of those." Well, I'm one of those. My problem was I didn't stick to it. I grew up and forgot what I've always wanted to do.
So, I went back to school to finish my degree in Studio Arts from CalState-L.A. For a quarter, I interned for the Ben 10 series at Cartoon Networks Studios in Burbank, where I had the pleasure to meet and learn from some of the most talented artists in the business. 

Then, due to my bilingual and creative background I was selected to be the Portuguese translator to an Alternate Reality Game called “The Lost Ring.” As the character “Larissa,” I've had the great privilege to work with Jane Mcgonigal and some of incredibly talented performers/artists/photographers/designers/gamers. It was truly an honor to translate and motivate the Portuguese speaking audience to participate through Larissa. This adventure led me to spend a week in Beijing, go to the Olympics closing ceremony, the Great Wall, and even interpreted a message to our Brazilian players from gold medalist Edwin Moses!

I've always enjoyed writing and even did one year of Mass Communication degree in a Federal University in Brazil before coming to the U.S.. But in 2011, I started to work on a story that eventually became One Hit Wonder, my debut novel, released in June 2012.
After that, I can say I'm always writing something, and when I'm not writing I'm working with mixed media or just hanging out with the best family and friends in the world.
