Owner of a documentary style combined with a refined aesthetic sense and fresh eyes, Douglas developed a taste for cinema since a very young age. In his early years Douglas's parents owned a video store and he literally grew up watching movies.

After a season in New York in 2013, where he studied cinematography at the School of Visual Arts, Douglas returned to Brazil and became a constant partner in Stink projects. 

He was a finalist for the Young Directors Award 2016 in Cannes with the film "Cristian”.
