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 I'm currently working as a Executive Creative Director at Cheil Brazil.
During my career I won several awards, these include: One Show (Gold pencil), One Show Interactive (Silver pencil), Cannes Lions (2 Silvers, 3 Bronzes, 6 shortlists), London International Awards (Gold, Silver, Bronze), Clio Awards (Bronze innovative) and all the latin-american awards. I was selected in FILE (International Electronic Language Festival), I have a degree in musical arts (eletric bass) in Villa Lobos conservatory and I also drew 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.
