I'm a visual artist, Web - APPS developer and Internet entrepreneur, in development towards a better expression of myself in this existence. The medium: the visual arts supported by digital media and life.


The creative energy is a natural part of every human being; it relates the heart, the conscience and the spirit with the universe around. The need to express that energy is what leads me to the action of materializing. That action frees me and relates me with the existence.


I try to create a journey into imagination, provoke sensations that bring something positive through their observation and, in some cases, to visually show the dark side of the universe to appreciate and reflect on it. I am seeking to encourage the work in the areas of human expression to get to the true understanding of our nature and thus achieve a better life.
