Passion for sports, trips and all kinds of arts defines Taz de Alencar who was born in Rio de Janeiro, moved to the USA at an early age and then to France with his family. It was during a summer course that he ended up doing an intensive in the performing arts, and found out what he really wanted. Taz graduated in business  in San Diego in 2016, and soon afterwards moved to Los Angeles, where he took classes with the American actor and producer James Franco at the prestigious James Franco’s Acting & Film School, and also studied at New York Film Academy in Los Angeles.

As soon as he returned to Brazil, observing the market trend for the valuing of corporate social responsibility, Taz had the idea of ​​creating the startup Magikk (@magikkarma), a company that distributes a kind of digital currency as a reward to those who invest in social projects. There are already almost five thousand users. “Social engagement is part of my life. What keeps me going  is the desire to make the world better, ”says Taz, who mobilizes actions for beach clean-ups, distribution of food to homeless people,  nursing home visits and activities designed for children with special needs. “The actor is an entrepreneur with artistic sensibility. My life motto is to play artistically in good projects which make an impact on people’s lives”, he claims. Taz has already acted in the soap opera “Apocalipse”, on TV Record;  in the dubbing of the award-winning film “A vida invisivel” by Karim Ainouz and the main highlight of “Mostra Um Certo Olhar”, at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
