Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
As a model, I always felt comfortable in front of the camera but quickly became very interested in what went on behind the camera. What it was that went into creating those images. Later I had a chance to be on set as a body-double for Kate Beckinsale for the film Pearl Harbor, and I was just fascinated by all of it. I loved being around it. Shortly after that, I moved to LA and did a lot of extra and body double work. I became interested in the film process, so I started to think maybe I could make a film one day.
Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I’m a new filmmaker, so my career is still in its early stages, but I found it very interesting to make my first short film during the pandemic called Before Sunrise (2020). The inspirational movie about friendship was shot on an iPhone and directed remotely from Brazil. I played all five characters in it, undoubtedly a captivating and fun experience. I’m proud to say that Before Sunrise is the winner of over 20 film festival awards in numerous categories.

Do you have a favourite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshipping.”
I love this quote, is from Hubert Reeves, is exactly what i think.
