User Bio

Thiago was born in the jungles of Sao Paulo, Brazil, a young monkey keen to explore his surroundings and learn new skills. _His mother discovered he had a flare for design and animation so stole a Macintosh from some tourists and gave it to him, from which he learnt all about animation and design. After learning to behave like a human he managed to find a job in design and worked in Brazil for 3 years. Then one day he managed to stow away on boat to London, England, ready to explore this new jungle and pursue his new life and career. Over the years he has had the opportunity to work with some really nice people producing work for Cartoon Network, Virgin, BBC, Channel 4, Microsoft, Pepsi, Nickelodeon, RedBee, SKY and Nokia to name a few… none of whom noticed he is in fact a monkey.

Currently, he has opened his own studio in London with fellow Spanish monkey David Pocull. They decided to call their studio Cake, to honour their favourite treat, where they bring fresh new ingredients everyday, mixing their skills in live-action and animation to deliver tasty cakes to their clients around the globe.

And if it isn't enough, he still find time to organise with James Wignall, the main event for Directors, Designers, Animators and Artists in London called See No Evil.
