Hi. Nice to meet you. My name is André Havt, but you can call me Havt. I’m a creative director, art director, designer, photographer, curator, musician, father and bike rider. 
If I could point out just one thing about my work it's my passion for telling stories. In any form. Whether it is a 30-second spot, in a song, in a post, stories, or even in a tweet. In fact, it is amazing how much noise you can have with just one tweet. I have had stories in a museum exhibition, which actually changed the lives of 9 young favela residents. I have had stories which united people around inclusion in sport and that brought people from different cultures together to tell stories of solidarity and compassion. I have worked on products to help tell stories and ease the pain of sick children and another one that uses technology to amplify stories and make them more frightening. Collaborative, engaging, entertaining, emotional, and, most important, stories that are remembered. As a matter or a fact my passion for photography comes from telling stories through images. The photos that I find most enchanting are the ones that I can imagine a story behind. The more I can expand and overflow the moment captured into a story, the happier I am with the result. In short, this is my story, storytelling.
I was lucky throughout my career to win some national and international awards telling these stories. And during this journey I managed to engage and teach some nice stories in lectures, events and classes at major educational institutions.
