Brazilian journalist and documentary filmmaker covering human rights + climate justice + culture.


I have been working as a journalist, reporter and independent screenwriter with multimedia journalism and audiovisual projects, especially documentaries and impactful ones. I am a volunteer researcher at EmpoderaClima; a fellowship (2023) of the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ); and a consultant for Instituto Febre. I have worked for years at Instituto Fashion Revolution Brasil and carried out projects with other organizations such as Conectas, Escola de Ativismo, Instituto Climainfo, and Instituto Caburé. I also have worked as a reporter at ELLE Brasil magazine and as video producer and content creator at Mundo Content. In 2023, I signed the documentary web series 'Monocultura da Energia', with support from ICFJ, 3Film, and distribution by ((o))eco. I've interested in researching, producing and writing about human rights; environmental and climate justice; and culture and society.
