I should have asked someone to write about me. But one of the values that I most value is self awareness, so I should be able to write about me.
From the beginning
You really don’t want to know about my childhood, right? So I’ll leave you with this only. I was born in 1980 in Bragança, a small town in the north of Portugal, and I moved to Lisbon when I was 8. That’s enough.
Well, since I was young my love for art, typography and composition was present all the time. Then I found out that there was a thing called design. I knew on that moment that that was what I was supposed to be doing with my life. And so I did.
I enrolled in a design course at etic_ and spent 2 years there. That was in 2002, where digital studios like 2advanced were killing it. I felt in love with the web. In 2004 I started to work in an design agency and in 2012 I made the jump to become a freelancer. It all went well. Then I arrived where I am today.

We focus on building experiences, being digital or analog, but with people and interaction in mind. An the we celebrated.
Yep. That’s one of my biggest passions. Let’s call it like that. I really really really love wine. Really. Not because of the beverage itself, but for what it usually represents: the stories, the people, the manufacturing, the history. I love bottles with soul. Because this is what I am – a person with a big soul. I like to believe in that.
Let’s keep in touch. And enjoy my thoughts. If you don’t, that’s ok also. Just be happy.
