Jackie was born in the tropical paradise and beautiful chaos of Rio de Janeiro. Her passion for storytelling started at an early age and was sparked by the desire to create a world built by her imagination.
Jackie moved to the USA in 2008 to pursue a career in fashion. She went to the Fashion Institute of Technology and was working in the fashion industry when a chance encounter brought her to her very first film set as a stylist. The rest is history. Jackie fell in love with working behind the scenes and decided to dedicate her life to making films.
In 2013, Jackie took an intensive course in filmmaking in Maine Media School. She wrote and directed her first film in spring of 2014.
Jackie lives in the urban jungle that is NYC. Her work is inspired by art, fashion, travels, and the memorable characters she encounters on a daily basis.
