BIOGRAPHY

I am qualified in business administration with an MBA in marketing. I work for large corporations and I founded my own  communication, marketing and video production agency when I was very young.

Through my work for major companies such as JBS Group, Boehringer Ingelheim, Amanco Wavin, among others, I have won 10 major awards.
He also acted as director, scriptwriter, producer and star of several documentaries, as well as doing special projects for Rede Globo and RecordTv, Brazil's largest television stations.
In the past I practiced several extreme sports, and it was in paramotoring that I found the way to show the environmental and social realities of different places, thus leaving a legacy for the next generations.

I have travelled more than 22,000 km by paramotor over Brazil in expeditions shown on TV and documentaries. I am a chief instructor, although I no longer work as an instructor, a continental altitude record holder and I was a paramotor instructor for the elite troops of the Brazilian Navy.
I am a lecturer, I have published 40 books on my flights around Brazil, 80 documentaries and an exhibition with photos, videos and a virtual reality paramotor simulator that travels around Brazil and has already been visited by more than 500,000 people. 

Flying and the expeditions I do are my life.

There were many impressive moments that I experienced during my 30 years of flying, but, without doubt, the most dramatic and exciting was the flight over the biggest environmental disaster in in Brazil’s history. The collapse of a dam that killed dozens of people and destroyed the environment. The disaster of Mariana, located in Minas Gerais. The documentary I made had a huge impact not only in Brazil, but also throughout the world.

Among my most memorable flights were those over several natural paradises, such as Chapada Diamantina, Jalapão and Chapada das Mesas. The biggest challenge, without a doubt, was flying over the active volcano Popocatépetl in Mexico at over 5,000 metres.
