In advertising, he received awards at Art Directors, Clio, Cannes and CCSP.

As a director, he directed a number of short films and TV movies, especially the films “Nocaute” and “Noite brancas em um sábado de glória” (White Nights on a Saturday of Glory). He directed a TV adaptation of the award-winning classic book Grande Sertão Veredas, by Guimarães Rosa – “Diadorim & Riobaldo”.
