I was born in Santos, SP - Brazil on Apr 09th 1989.
With only eight months, my grandmother gave me a red drum toy. With the music playing at home, my parents began noticing my ease with the rhythm.
At the age of one, I won my first drums toy. It was white with a kick, snare, ton and a cymbal. At that age what I loved most was disassembling and assembling it. More than even playing it.
At carnival of 1991 my father, member of the Agnus Dei band, was playing at a Catholic retreat in “Maracanãzinho” (Rio de Janeiro - Brazil). Right after his first break, my mother put me on the drums and I started playing with him. A reporter called Ari Peixoto, from Globo (broadcaster in Brazil), saw me playing and said: “A one year old baby playing the drums?” That´s when he decided to make story about me.
As soon as I was three years old (1992), I won my first real drums. Its name was "Rollstar". It was not the best, but who said I cared... after all, it was my first drums! I could use it to practice since, in that very same year, I started playing at the church that I am used to go every Sunday up to these days.
At the age of seven (1996), my father asked me if I wanted to join Agnus Dei´s band. It was three years of many shows throughout Brazil. What I experienced: "If it was not for Agnus Dei, I would not be half the musician I am today”.
At the age of twelve (2001), I heard my first Heavy Metal CD: "Angels Cry" from Angra. When I started listening to it, I could not understand what the drummer was doing. I felt stunned. That´s when I started looking for double bass.
The following year (2002), now thirteen years old, I made a decision and told my father: "I'll be a musician”. He was against it even being a pianist, since he did not use music as a way of living. Thus, he did not want me to choose this kind of career.
At the age of fourteen (2003), I took my first drums classes. I was a student of Danilo Lopes (drummer / singer - Ceremonya). There, I had three months of classes that gave me all informations to improve what I was looking for.
At that same year, at a studio’s room that my uncle had at home, I started teaching my cousin. I stayed there for almost 7 years, studying hard and giving many classes. If it were not for my uncle and aunt holding up my noise, I don’t know what would have become.
Later, still that year, I bought my first professional outfit, my double pedal (which I still use today).
At the age of sixteen (2005), Alvaro Alves (a childhood friend, today also a musician) and I, started playing with Roberto Barros (solo). That´s when I saw the perfect opportunity to start working with what I’ve been studying these past two years, the double bass. It was a tough time but really worthwhile that gave me a good experience, resulting in the record of Roberto’s CD in 2007.
Right after that, I started playing at nightclubs. I was a member of a band called “O Candeeiro”, which played many Brazilian and Latin rhythms. I took the opportunity to improve my notions of these rhythms, being accepted to ULM (Free University of Music) and began to devote myself to Jazz, Brazilian and Latin rhythms. Over there, I studied with Toniquinho and Liliam Carmona.
From that time onwards, I began to feel the need to compose. It was when the "Beach Groove" was born. I wrote the drums line without even sit on it. I created it just in my head and wrote it down. All other instruments were created in that very same way.
In 2009, I joined General Tequila band (Pop / Rock). This is one of the most respected bands in Santos and region.
At the age of 22 (2012), I produced my first video: "Locomotive".
At the same year, I've joined the Parallax (Hard Rock).
In 2014, I joined "Devils Paradise" band, in order to record the CD. One of the CD's tracks, was produced by Edu Falaschi (Almah / ex-Angra).
About one year later, he (Edu) called me, asking if was interested in doing a test to join Almah.
I recorded two videos, playing "In My Sleep" and "Days Of The New."
A week after sending the videos, I was teaching when I received the news that I was Almah's new drummer. The funny thing is that the first metal band I heard (that made me arouse the interest in becoming a musician), was the band which Edu Falaschi was the lead singer. Crazy, don't you think?
In 2016 I was considered the second best Brazilian Heavy Metal drummer, through the popular vote of the country's biggest rock magazine, ROADIE CREW.
Now, I see clearly that every way we decided to take, have obstacles. And many people unfortunetly give up, others keep going. And when they raise, they raise stronger, better prepared for the next wall.
Never give up on your dream. And remember: "The greater the obstacle, the greater the victory."
