Welcome to my web space, a place to share my writing, photography, and other art projects.
I was born in São Paulo, Brazil. My passion for art began when I initiated theater studies at Teatro Escola Macunaíma (São Paulo, 1974). I participated in several productions involving children’s theater, circus, and dance. I moved to the United States in 1988.
I learned English through foreign trade undergraduate studies. Then, I received my master’s degree in business administration (MBA) at Suffolk University, Boston, MA, and today, I also work in foreign trade regulatory affairs.
Currently, I reside on the Northshore of Boston, MA.
In 2018, I finally decided to reconnect to art and started writing. I independently published two collections of poems: “Reencontro” (2019) and “Retrajetoria” (2020). I explored writing this collection of poems using some of my photographs. Photography has been an enjoyable art activity, especially when I am outdoors. Today, I still write my poems using elements from my photography.
I have been studying creative writing for children for the past three years. I am working on my first illustrated Children’s literature book, which will be available in Portuguese this Fall. I am excited about exploring my poetry and Children’s literature.
My published work is in Portuguese. However, I plan on working on publishing a collection of epistolary poems in English.
I take great pleasure in sharing my photography of places I’ve been around the world, hiking trips in the mountains, rain forests, national parks, and waterfalls – exploring the beauty of nature. I am happy when I am near the sea. I enjoy very much studying the sounds of different words and languages and meeting and cultivating new friendships around the globe.
