I am a Brazilian architect with international qualification. After six years
studying architecture in Brazil and one semester as an exchange student in
Lisbon, I moved to Europe to start a Master in architecture. I am extremely
passionate about the profession that I chose and luckily I have had the
opportunity to complete some internships, besides that I worked as a Junior
Architect for six months after finishing the Bachelors.

I have a wide background, starting in a small scale office, doing mostly interior design housing ranging to medium scale projects essentially University and Hotels reaching to big scale as being an intern for almost two years in the renovation of Beira Rio Stadium, one of the venues hosting the World Cup in Brazil in 2014. 

In addition to my expertise in design, I’m also proficient with the major software systems, including AutoCAD, Revit, ArchiCAD, Rhinoceros/Grasshopper, Sketchup, Vray and Adobe Creative Suite.
I finished the Masters in architecture in 2019 at Politecnico di Milano and I
have been assumed to work as an architect in the largest architecture firm in
