who am i anyway
I AM a Brazilian born and raised Musical Theatre Actor currently residing in New York City. At the age of 5 living in Cuiabá, Brazil, I was given a sense of belonging in the performing arts that was alive and well in my hometown. Instead of playing soccer, little me and my neighborhood friends would write, rehearse and perform little plays for our close relatives. It was during that time that I completely immersed himself in all things storytelling and continued on that path almost instantly after moving to The United States at the age of 8.
With countless lessons and community productions, I made my professional stage debut at the age of 17 in South Florida. I then began to take the Sofla theatre circuit by storm, working full time upon graduating High School. During my time living in SoFla, I had the honor to portray some bucket list roles such as 'Gabe' in Next To Normal (Carbonell Award nomination), 'Dick' in High Fidelity and 'Toby' in Sweeney Todd (Two time BroadwayWorld Awards Nominee for both of my portrayals). Soon after joining the Actors Equity Association, I moved to Manhattan to widen my pursuits.
Since living in NYC, I've performed at The Met, overseas, and now touring the country in Broadway's Jersey Boys! My DREAM SHOW! I am ecstatic to see where my career will continue to take me and all of the knowledge I'll gain from my adventures. I hope to make my country proud and represent all of the hardworking and talented Brazilians out there that haven't had the means to chase their dreams. My greatest ambition expands to be fulfilling my heart-song to impact and connect to as many humans as I possibly can as a story teller and vocalist.
