About me

I'm a non-binary and Jewish actor, writer and Drag King from Brazil, currently based in Berlin. I just finished shooting the short film "The Trouble Out There" in Tbilisi, Georgia and have a featured role in an upcoming Netflix production. I'm also kept quite busy developing my own TV shows, a dystopic queer Western and a dramedy about my Jewish family's immigration to Brazil.
