About Me

I am Brazilian, an actor, and announcer, and I love what I do. I am a Mormon. I love my family! My wife and my children are motivation for me! I adore music and the cinema. Therefore, I work with them. I have been an actor for more than 15 years with experience in TV, Soap Operas, TV commercials and full length films. I was the “publicity youngster” of the Casas Bahia [Homes of Bahia] of 2006 and 2012. I am a DJ, announcer, and presenter with more than 25 years of experience. I have worked in the largest radio stations in Brazil (Jovem Pan, Antena 1, Transamerica, Nova FM, Energia 57) [names of radio and TV Stations]. I am a voice actor, and an actor in dubbing in films, and diverse series. I have been the Brazilian voice for persons in animated films and documentaries, including, Cuba Gooding Jr, Hugo Weaving, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, John Travolta, Matthey Perry, Denzel Washington, Jim Carey, Seth Rogen, and many others.

Why I am a Mormon

I had my first contact with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while I was still an adolescent, only it was ten years later that I became a member. I put off being baptized because I thought that “all were equal” and that it did not matter to me. But later, the changes that took place in my parents and my sister, and the harmony and peace that reigned in our home made me think, “Perhaps it would be good if I read that Book of Mormon.” Truthfully, I “devoured” the book. Simply, I was unable to stop reading it! I read it in one week, and in the middle of the book, in 3 Nephi, I already knew within myself that I wanted to be baptized. I needed that! All of my questions had been answered. I no longer had any fear or uncertainty in my mind. I had peace in my heart. I know that God lives and answers our prayers. Jesus Christ is the Savior of humanity. He lives! Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration. He saw God, the Father, and Jesus Christ, the Son, after praying and asking for guidance on a spring morning in 1820. We are guided by living prophets. Thomas S. Monson is the present Prophet. The Book of Mormon is true and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is what its name says it is, “The Church of Jesus Christ!” I bear my testimony of this, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!

How I live my faith

I believe that serving our fellowmen is the best way to become like Jesus Christ. Through the various Church callings in which I have served, and am serving, I have had the opportunity of being an instrument in the hands of the Lord to touch and change my life and the lives of those with whom I associate. It is good to be part of the brotherhood of the High Priest’s quorum, and to able to take care of things related to eternity and family bonds through voluntary service in the Temple.
