Composition is the core of my work. I have studied, composed and received multiple AWARDS in various styles, ranging from traditional to experimental classical music, from jazz to Brazilian and other folk kinds of music. My final essay as a Doctor of Musical Arts focus on the possibilities of amalgam and reciprocate influence among those distinct musical aesthetics.

My compositions have been performed and recorded around the globe, including Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, United States of America, Austria, Bulgaria, Netherlands and Japan.
