After years studying law and working as an intern at the Public Defenders Office and Department of Justice at my hometown of Curitiba, Brazil, I have decided to follow my heart and graduated as Chef de Cuisine and Restaurateur in Centro Europeu, one of the best Culinary Schools in Brazil.

In 2009 I have Mastered as Pastry Chef in Le Cordon Bleu, London, where I have worked as Sous Pastry Chef at Albert and Michael Roux's Brasserie, at Sofitel St. James.

After returning to Brazil I have opened a contemporary restaurant called Mandi Bistro which won the TripAvisors Exellence Certificate on 2014. 
A short while ago I won a Pastry Reality Show similar to Master Chef, produced by the strongest Brazilian TV station.

I have also specialized at: 


Science & Cooking: From Haute Cuisine to Soft Matter Science, Harvard.

Introduction to Global Hospitality Management, Cornell University.

The World of Wine, Adelaide University, Australia.

Culinary and Child Nutrition, Stanford University.
