Hello you all! How is it going?
In a week, it will mark 2 months in Brazil! It's been a great experience and journey so far, and I'm very excited for all the partnerships, projects and everything else coming my way.
Today I would like to share with you some fun times and exciting news.
2 weeks ago I had the pleasure to attend Tag Heuer Brazil's event, for the launch of their tech oriented new watches named #DontCrackUnderPressure, think Apple Watch feat. Tag Heuer. The event was held at Casa Fares, a huge, beautiful and modern space right in the heart of Jardim Paulistano. Brazilian Judo athlete and olympic medal winner, Flavio Canto was the special guest and played some games while the presentation was on.
After a few drinks and some great chatting with the beauties Maria Preu (C&A) and Priscila Borgonovi (PBPR), we went downstairs for some good dancing and more fun!
Millennium Dance Complex:
Millennium is the biggest Dance Complex from Los Angeles. Their clients include Starts such as J.Lo, Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez and more.
Since I arrived in Brazil I've been looking for choreographers, dancers and a studio to start practicing and creating the choreography for my first album (tone released ) #PopLife.
Guess what? I found Klaus Duarte, amazing choreographer and dancer who believed in my work and decided to have a meeting with me and his team. I finally met Paula Tomazella and Milo Levell head of the first Millennium Dance complex in Brasil. If you don't know, Milo was Michael Jackson's choreographer!
The big news is: They love and believe in my Music and Art, so we decided to seal a partnership where they will be creating the choreographies for #PopLife and in exchange I will be co-producing their amazingly talented artists! This is extremely exciting!
Check out my first workshop with the kids and my very first session today with Klaus, creating moves for my first single #PopLife!
Ausländer Halloween Party:
To complete an amazing post, I should finish it with an amazing party! =)
I was invited to attend Ausländer's Halloween Party held at an amazing location called Nos Trilhos, an old and industrial neighborhood of Sao Paulo, Mocca. They party itself was ok but the looks were absurd and I had the PLEASURE to wear Walério Araújo, an amazing Brazilian designer who is a sweetheart and extremely talented! Alongside me, Andre Florindo and Paola Ludtke in the gang who were also in Walério. I also matched my look with Chernobyl Show's custom headpiece I was gifted back in L.A. Check it out below!
Guys, I hope you enjoyed all the news and had fun it. I will keep on posting the good news! If you like it don't forget to engage a bit with me by liking, commenting and sharing it!

Much LOVE, Catch you all soon,
How you guys doing?
It's been about 5 weeks in Sao Paulo now and things keep getting better!
Besides some amazing new collaborators, partnerships and deals I can't quite tell yet, there are still some good news and fun events I would like to report and share with you.
The past two weeks have been like this:
The other night I had the pleasure to attend the launch party of Givenchy's new perfume 'Gentlemen Only Absolute', held at millionaire Cris Arcangeli's mansion in the most traditional neighborhood Jardim Paulista, Sao Paulo.
The party was pumping with good music by DJs, Cris Proença and Sarah Stenzel, amazing cocktails, a beautiful and well served buffet and of course, sexy Brazilian Celebs and Socialites, such as Wolf Maya, Stella Jacintho and Amir Slama.
A few nights after Givenchy's superb event, I went on to attend Brazilian blogger and Socialite Lelê Navarro's website renewal party at Tea Connection in Jardins, Sao Paulo.
The event was very intimate. Lelê talked about her career and her passion for Fashion, most specifically for Men's Fashion, which is usually rare for a Woman. Good one Navarro!
My dear friend and beauty guru, Andre Florindo was also there, giving a workshop about natural beauty and self confidence. To keep the party rolling, live music! =)

I hope you guys enjoyed the news. Have fun and a wonderful new week! =)
I hope you all have been enjoying the summer as much as I am (if you are in the Northern Hemisphere)! This week marked exactly 4 months I've been adventuring myself in the city of "Angels", Los Angeles. A lot has happened throughout this journey; I've had the pleasure to meet some amazing new creatives and humans; I've made new friends for life and I have been performing around and growing my fan base, it's been beautiful!
As I always say, good relationships are everything! =)
Speaking of relationships, two weeks ago, I was invited by my dear friends and music family, N'Dea Davenport and Katsuya Everywhere, both from Celectrixx, to guest perform with them in the super hyped Soho House New York.
Needless to say, I was extremely happy and flattered, so with not much hesitation I accepted the invitation and 3 days later I was flying to my "Spirit City", New York City!
Monday afternoon, I arrived in the chaotic, dirty and noisy Manhattan.
At first, I confess, I was so over the whole thing, I thought I wasn't gonna get into the groove anymore (coming from LA, imagine). Tho next morning I woke up with so much drive and passion, but above all, the hunger to make it big in life, a feeling I've got within since a young age, that every now and then, gets its flames almost off but suddenly wakes up again never letting it die.
Tuesday afternoon, after getting my NYC energy back, I got a call from the one and only, Susanne Bartsch, the Queen of Club Kids and NYC nightlife. Susanne invited me for a sudden guest performance at my favorite club in town, Le Bain at The Standard, High Line for her super successful party On Top!
The Performance was fantastic! I sang my first single #PopLife in my 70's leather disco ball suit! The crowd, including friends, guests, fans and club kids were so welcoming and excited, I had a blast! Check Below:
Continuing my one week NYC trip, I took the chance to see a few dear friends, have great dinners and even hang out at Central Park and watch Wood Allen's new movie before my highly anticipated performance at Soho House. =)
Friday, after finally meeting up with my pals N'Dea and Katsuya, we made it to Soho House for our 2 hour sound check and rehearsal. The ballroom was cool and the sound system pretty dope! The engineers and staff were very helpful and understanding of our needs. Later on, after a whole day of sweat, hard work and preparation, I had only one last thing before showtime: Choosing the perfect look!
The Show took place around 1am. Celectrixx killed it with their amazing set! As soon as they were done, I was finally introduced to the public by N'Dea to play my single #PopLife.
What an honor!
Post show, I got together with my good old friends who came to homage me and decided that drinks and some chatting in the rooftop would be just right!
NYC was amazing as always and I had a fantastic time while back there. I can now finally say, New York is really my city and I cannot wait to be back!
I would like to give a shoutout to my boys Rify Royalty and RESH for taking care of me while my stay! And to everyone else that made this one week trip so special and memorable, thank you so much! =)
I hope you enjoy the post!
Have a great week everyone!
Hello from California Dreaming Everyone! =)
I hope you are all doing good and having a great new week!
I arrived in LA one week ago and I've been enjoying it quite a bit.
The SUN is fantastic!
I have so much to do and accomplish while in LA, the city is growing on me and I have been meeting some great people so I should be posting some good news very soon!
For now, let me talk a little about my latest Fashion Film Music Video I shot in Tokyo a few days before coming to the U.S. It's for my newest single 'Thursday High'.:
*You can get it here:
I had been producing my new music video for about a month and a half.
Besides all the hard work that production is, all went pretty well expect for a little drama I had, the Director decided to drop the project 1 week prior to the shooting (YES, 1 week!).
Luckily, I have great friends and people who believe in my Vision and Art that I can always count on, so in the end, everything worked pretty well! =)
This time I've had the pleasure to work/collaborate with even more loved ones!
From models to dancers, hair & makeup professionals to stylist, artists to designers.
What a great team!
I'm not gonna give it all just yet, but I can tell you a bit about its concept.
First of all, I'm calling this a Fashion Film Music Video, so expect a lot of Fashion such as Anrealage, Mayuko Daimon and more.
I'm throwing some art statements, some very poppy elements and a lot of sexiness! =)
There is a little bit for everyone, I promise!
The story recreates in a metaphorical and artistic way, the night that inspired me to write 'Thursday High'. It also recreates in a surreal way, the dimension we go to when we get high on a Thursday night! =) It's filled with body and skin! =)
I really don't wanna talk too much about it so I will stop here. Below you can see some of the behind the scenes, and don't forget to check the mega team on board for this beautiful piece of art.
Enjoy everyone! =)

How is it going? I hope you had a much better weekend than I did... =(
I've got the flu, more specifically the dangerous one, Influenza... I already went to the Doctor and I'm taking the right medicines, so I should be back on track early next week! =)
Anyways, besides the flu, I have a much better news!
Last Thursday Night I held a party in collaboration with my dearest DJ Fujiko, who is the one behind every Thursday nights at #DJBarBridge.
The was was to celebrate the release of my newest single 'Thursday High', which is part of my first album expected to drop sometime this year.
At the party I played a special DJ set to get the crowd warmed up, and then performed 4 songs including my first single #PopLife, which you should have listened to by now! =)
The event was a success, so many people I had no idea were actually my fans plus all my lovely friends that were as excited as I was to be there cheering up and having fun.
I would like to thank each one of you who came out last Thursday night and made me smile once again.
I love you all,
Today is such a special day for me! It's Sunday evening and I'm writing at home after 2 nights of LIVE SHOWS to support the release of my Single's Music Video #PopLife!
Here is a Teaser straight from my Facebook followed by the full video in the end of the post.
On Friday night, I performed for Bloc Japon's end of year party where I released the the Music Video to public. It was a very energetic night full of excited fans jumping and dancing around with me! =)
On Saturday night, I kept the rhythm on at Trump Room for Tokyo Scramble's party. It was quite a fun night specially when the fans started singing #PopLife's hook with me! Damn it, what a thrill!
