Meet our team

Out of the 7.674 billion people in the world, the two of us met to become Bossa Creative.

Clarissa is from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (aka carioca), Brazil, and she’s a naturalized American. She’s lived in the U.S. since 2006 and she loves being with her family and friends. She has a Bachelor in Fine Arts and a Master’s degree in Graphic Design, from Georgia State University. She’s been a Professor of Graphic Design for the past 10 years, and as a Designer, she’s worked for local and multinational companies like Cartoon Network and The Fox Theatre Institute in Atlanta.


In 2019, Clarissa created a free, monthly event for Brazilian children to gather and watch movies with Portuguese audio. This event brought a great sense of belonging and community to the children and their parents. This event was the starting point to create Bossa Creative LLC.
