Born in Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo began his career with Price Waterhouse in 1990. His interest in finance and foreign markets led him to join Banco Garantia - renamed Credit Suisse First Boston - Latin America’s premier investment bank. Over the next decade, he specialized in emerging countries' fixed income markets, first as a senior international trader, and later as Director of Credit Trading in South America. In Brazil, Eduardo ventured into independent film finance and distribution, which brought him to Los Angeles where he earned his MFA in Film Producing from the American Film Institute. While at AFI, Eduardo collaborated with Sundance and Slamdance in varied capacities. In June 2006 he created OLHAR INDEPENDENTE , a film service aimed at educating Brazilian filmmakers and representing their work in Los Angeles, ultimately helping bring their films to fruition, to festivals, and to market. And in 2010, Olhar Independente and the BRAZILIAN FILM NETWORK formed a partnership to create a de facto rep office for the Brazilian film industry in Los Angeles. That very same year, responding to demand from investors, HTICC - High Treason Intellectual Capital Consulting - began its operations developing franchise concepts and adapting financial investments for the Brazilian market. Always a step ahead of the curve and counting on his creativity, Eduardo continues to write a column for O Globo, one of Brazil's largest and most influential print dailies.
