Hey there!

I'm a journalist from Brazil and currently a PhD student of Media and Communication at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

I believe there is no better way to increase your sensibility about how people understand and share information, concepts, feelings and ideas than living in a new cultural environment – and putting your communication skills in practice whenever it's possible.
At the same time, a perspective from "outside" also adds to the constant need of adaptation and innovation strategies that marks the communication industry, no matter where you are.

Check out below some pieces of my work!

The music scene under a car park

The legacy of The Playroom, the last rock'n'roll spot on the Gold Coast to be shut down in the 90's. It's 2018. You're crossing Tallebudgera Creek at night, enjoying a quiet atmosphere. Waves lap onto the rocks below, whilst quiet fishermen are scattered along the bridge.

When boats become classrooms

Understanding the environment is an everyday practice, especially here on the Gold Coast. Our rich and blessed landscapes give us a lot to think about (and to be grateful for). They are also a great advantage for our natural sciences teachers.
