 I arrived in LA on May 2010 to study filmmaking at New York Film Academy and redirect my career into the film industry. Until now I worked on more than 50 shorts ad 1 feature as: Screenwriter, Producer, Director, Editor, Director of Photography, 1st Assistant Camera, 2nd Assistant Camera, Gaffer, Grip, Sound Mixer/Boom Operator, Assistant Director, Script Supervisor, and Production Assistant. Check the films I directed below.


Stuffed (USA/Brazil, 2011, 15:00, thriller, Red Camera, color)
A mysterious private eye is hired by an arrogant advertising executive to investigate whether his partner is stealing from their ad agency, which leads to fiendish consequences in this neo-noir film with a dash of creepy magical realism. Filmed in Los Angeles, the story is loosely inspired by the critically acclaimed Brazilian novel "The Devil To Pay In The Backlands". Like in noir novels, STUFFED depicts a world full of cynical attitudes, with dialogues that sometimes sound outlandish. The title of the film is used in the whimsical sense of "turned into stuff". CAST: Steve Bartlett, Phil Miler, Mariana Campos, Michael C. Pierce, Jessie Carter, Christine Tanabe, Brenna Rhea, and A.J. Ruiz.
