On his first adventure he captured a ship of immense value and brought it back safely to Jamaica. He eventually was caught and sent to Spain, but he escaped with threats of vengeance from his followers. He soon resumed his criminal career, purchasing a new ship from fellow pirate FranΓ§ois l’Olonnais and later sailing in company with Sir Henry Morgan among others.

Drunken and debauched, Braziliano threatens to shoot anyone who will not drink with him. He roasted alive two Spanish farmers on wooden spits after they refused to hand over their pigs. He treats his Spanish prisoners barbarously, typically cutting off their limbs or roasting them alive over a fire.
