/ about me

I’m Carlos, a Brazilian/Italian narrative designer, born in 1984.

In 2008 I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in social communications, and I’ve been working in the entertainment industry for the past 7 years, writing for games and comic books. I also make some illustrations now and then.

My main goal is to focus on writing narratives for the gaming industry and expand my career internationally.
