An American born and raised in São Paulo-Brazil, at the age of 17 Camila embarked on a journey throughout the world, experiencing different cultures, people, environments and perspectives in the USA, Europe and Asia.
Her perseverance and originality makes her a multi-cultural designer with her uniqueness transcended into the creative process of conceptual design.
