Despite starting his career without any technical preparation, after his first role in 2004 in the play Romeo and Juliet, Rodrigo attended several acting schools in South and North America and studied with teachers from all over the world to learn the different techniques and methods in order to sharpen his acting instrument. In over a decade, Rodrigo has landed lead and supporting roles in more than 100 projects in theater, film, tv, commercials, print, and voice-over.

Taking it a step further to learn this craft, Rodrigo committed to studying playwriting, screenwriting and directing. And although acting is his main line of work and preferred method of self-expression, his storytelling skills haven’t gone unnoticed – the first play he wrote and directed got nominated for best play, best direction, best script and best actor in several theater festivals, winning an award for best script. Later on Rodrigo wrote several plays inspired by Nelson Rodrigues, one of the most recognizable Brazilian playwriters of all time. In 2017 not only one of them received an award for best play, but the grandson of Nelson Rodrigues himself, after getting in touch with the material, helped produce the plays and performed in the role of his grandfather.
A multi-cultural mix of European, African and Native American with a Pan-American look. A man who dedicated more than 10 years to truly know his craft in order to carry any project and deliver whatever is asked of him. And that’s why Rodrigo can navigate well between different tasks, scenarios, and characters.
