My official name is Micael (Yeap, Michael with no H), but everybody calls me Mica. I was born and raised in the countryside of the Brazilian version of Texas: Goiás. I got my first job at 14 & until I jump into advertising I had the most random jobs ever, from carrying people's groceries to their cars, to working on a drugstore recharging prepaid phones, then in 2013 I got a scholarship and began my career in small local shops while I was getting my degree.
Then I decided to move to "the big city”, to adventure on “the famous agencies world”, and got my first job at F/ Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi. Currently I'm working at J. Walter Thompson as Art Director for global brands such as Coca-Cola, Amstel Bier, Kellogg's and others nationwide brands. Final note1: I have a particular passion for the intersection of pop culture, graphic design, art & technology. Final note2: Most people think I'm funny.
