Co-Founder & Executive Producer
Cassiano runs together with Andrea, Lari, Paulo, and Monique all the BR, EU, and US productions.

Surrounded by a fantastic team, he could see DaHouse grow and become this amazing place to be and work with. After more than ten years, they managed to get prizes that would be too unreal to think about when DaHouse was just a tiny room at Lucas' apartment.
