I graduated in Economics from Rio de Janeiro Federal University (UFRJ), and Journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). I have an MA in Radio and Television from San Francisco State University, California. I love high quality audiovisual work, I admire courageous people tremendously, I hate clichés, I consider myself the best handy man in the history of the best care home in London (Ellesmere), I went to the Rolling Stones show at Wembley and I spent 4 months backpacking through Asia.
I practiced journalism as a sports reporter for Tamoio Radio, then TV Educativa, before moving on to Globo TV, but I only discovered my true vocation when I decided to backpack again through Asia, this time with a video camera.
I then became an independent producer and began to travel the world alone, filming many series of reports for Globo TV. In 2001, I crossed the 9,000 kilometres of the Trans-Siberian Railway and a personal barrier: I managed to produce and direct an entire program by myself – in this case, Globo Reporter. I gained confidence, made other episodes and later migrated to Canal Futura. So far 140 documentaries have been broadcast centred on my solitary travels… This project with Futura is called “A Ticket to”.
I am also a lecturer at the Department of Social Communication of PUC-Rio.
And above all, I am Cecília’s father.
