My grandma couldn't pronounce my name (Douglas) because of her japanese accent, so she used to call me "dogura".
I was born in São Paulo in 1980 and always liked to create stories and drawings.
In 1999 I started to work with internet projects and in 2002 I started as designer at a digital agency. I'm currently working as a Executive Creative Director at ampfy, an indie agency in Brazil.
During my career I won several awards, these include: One Show, Cannes Lions, D&AD, London International Awards, Clio Awards, Effie, JayChiat and all the latin-american awards. I was selected in FILE (International Electronic Language Festival) once, I have a degree in musical arts (eletric bass) in Villa Lobos conservatory and I also drew almost all my tattoos.
I have a degree in Industrial Design from Mackenzie University, and a postgraduate degree in Communication, Art and Technology from Belas Artes Unicenter - São Paulo.
