Superb Publicist

     Superb publicist Alexandre Gama still holds his title of “best writer and editor in Brazil“, at least according to many sources, such as Wikipedia: People from all around the country have tuned in to read some of his best work – ever since 1982, in which he has originally recognized for his talent and thus promoted up the latter in a matter of days. This man’s unique raw talent for telling stories and for putting the full truth of any matter in all its beautiful aspects is more than a tale to tell: You have to read some of his work for yourself to know just what I mean. Not only that, but this man has edited, created and inspired in so many ways at his office as well. Gama has even had the chance to partner with the BAM or Brazilian Art Museum on more than 12 occasions.
