For more than two decades I have dedicated my career to the recording and dissemination of nature sounds. I was trained at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil, with the outstanding curator of the Neotropical sound archive, Jacques Vielliard. I am also trained as a Nature Sound Recordist by the Lab of Ornithology at Cornell University, USA.
In 2014, my passion for birds and my ability to identify them by their songs led me to win the first edition of National Geographic's Superbrains program.
I have published over 15 works portraying bird sounds in America and have had the honor of giving lectures, courses and workshops at various events on nature sounds, accessible tourism and bird sounds. Currently, I collaborate with the Macaulay Library's sound collection, the most important nature sound library in the world.
Among the most memorable moments of my career, I was invited to Cornell University in New York, where I presented my lecture "A World of Sounds", in which the soundscapes of the places where I recorded were the protagonists, transporting the audience through the emblematic sounds of nature. In addition, I recently received the award for transformation in nature tourism: Colombia Riqueza Natural, for the creation of the first birdwatching route for visually impaired people in South America. I am very proud to have contributed to the promotion of accessible tourism and to have brought the beauty of nature to a wider audience.
