MUSICAL BACKGROUND: I entered in the musical, when I bought my first bass to the 15 years and soon I participated and I helped to form the band New Order, where I acquired some experience as member of a band. In that same time I frequented approximately one semester in a music school to perfect and my sources of studies were always study books, video-classes and workshops. Some years later I had passages for the bands: Hunters of Strangers, Magic and Trauma. Therefore after, that the band trauma ended in 1997 was practically stopped even middles of 2001 where together with Jurandir Jr. we set up Symmetrya with a very professional proposal.
