bio

Rubens Filho

Director of Spells

aka Co-founder, CEO and Magilitator

Rubens' background is diverse, to say the least! He followed the family tradition and started his working life as a lawyer in Brazil. After ten years and a stint in NY however, he realised law wasn’t the right place for him. He made the decision to return to Brazil and moved into ad-land as a Copywriter. He eventually became a Creative Director at Ogilvy, leading many award-winning campaigns for global clients. In 2012 Rubens brought his family to the UK to do a Masters in Digital Media Management at Hyper Island. This was to be another pivotal point in his career and in 2013, he founded Abracademy with the dream of helping people grow, personally and professionally.
