Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1968, 300 meters from the Ipanema beach, on the age of 22 moved to Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1991 (now Czech Republic) to complete my studies in Scenography, Set design.
Finishing my masters in 1998, worked for TV, theatre and other major media events as Set designer, Production designer, Art Director and Director.
Glass came later on 2007, taking part of the Czech Brazilian Days in Nový Bor, when I saw glass blowing for the first time.
In 2010, I decided to make a two week glass course that ended in a three years graduation in “Creation and production of artistic glass”.
Now creating and producing glass in Slunečná, on North Bohemia, 100 meters from the forests.
