Though born in the US, Felipe spent a good part of his youth in Brazil, and understands Portuguese fluently.

A hard working student, Felipe eventually graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in Psychology from the University of California Santa Barbara. At the time Felipe was working as a math tutor for high school students taking the SAT and ACT math subjects tests, and was taking on-camera acting classes in his spare time. With the encouragement of his acting mentor, Lesly Abbott, Felipe decided to move to Los Angeles and attempt a different career path.

Initially living in Venice, Felipe learned how to surf, and has taken an avid liking to the sport.

As an actor, Felipe starred in the comedy web series, "Crazy Venice Apartment." He has also appeared in numerous commercials (national and international), music videos, and was recently cast for two separate principal roles in the same film, "Wanderlust," shot in Ireland and produced in Brazil. "Wanderlust" is currently in post-production. The film is set to be distributed by O2Filmes, the production company of Fernando Mereilles, director of "City of God."

Asides from acting, Felipe also co-edited and color corrected the internationally distributed and award winning feature, "You Can't Kill Stephen King" (2014).

Felipe is currently taking on-camera classes with Doug Warhit.
