In 2 decades as a journalist I reported from 12 countries - even from Antartica -, and worked in a wide variety of environments, dealing with different subjects and delivering news in various formats: written, radio and television. I covered Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics, FIFA 2014 WorldCup, but also major political events and summits, such as UN's Rio+20. I also covered Pope Francis' first international trip as pontiff, when he visited Brazil for Rio 2013 World Youth Day, and 4 million people from all over the world gathered at Copacabana beach for the main celebrations. As a senior network reporter, my current post, I do daily reports for TV Bandeirantes main evening news (Jornal da Band), daily live reports for the TV's morning show (Bora Brasil) and other network and local news. During my carreer, I worked also at the BBC World Service, in London, at CBN - Brazil's largest radio network in Rio de Janeiro, Terra Networks and Bloomberg News in São Paulo, performing a wide variety of duties: network and local reporter, international correspondent, producer, presenter, editor and chief-editor. In addition to that, I sometimes report as a freelancer to Radio New Zealand. I'm used to work with tight deadlines, real-time live reports. But I also have to do in-depth reports which require detailed newsgathering, fact checking, long interviews and creative writing.
