I've been taking photos since 1999. Can you believe it?

How old are you?

I was born on May 11th, 1984 and I am not good at math.

Are you free for a coffee?

No. Sorry! There's nothing wrong with you and I really love a damn good cup of coffee. The problem is that a simple “10 minutes coffee” in the middle of the day can kill my creative process. I hope you understand. But please, feel free to say hi by email or Instagram. I always reply fast and furious! =)

PERSONAL BRAND QUESTIONS

 

Wtf is BRU!?

BRU! is a brand built on the idea that there is no right way to do something. Also, that's how I roll BRU!

Why "BRU!"?

It is my nickname since I was a child and I think it sounds good with an exclamation mark: BRU!

Wtf is "manodocéu"?

Not sure. I use this expression all the time. In Brazil we use “manodocéu” as “brother” ("bro”or "bru"). And you know: BRU! is my nickname and my personal brand.

Why “BRU!” as a logotype instead of your full name?

I love my name but I hate it as a logotype. Also, I like BRU!

Can I buy your merch?

Actually I am currently creating some freaking cool products and it will be available very soon. Stay tuned!
