About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Refine the art of comunication..

ABOUT ME

I was born in Portugal but spent part of my early years of childhood traveling with my parents trough Africa and South Africa .

I guess my close ones can define me as someone who likes to have them around to share histories. I have a great family in Portugal , and a very solid group of friends. I am a people´s person that enjoys the company of others, but I also like to live by myself and enjoy the comfort of being alone. When I am not working in my professional field, I enjoy the time by drawing , reading , doing sports, photography , going to the cinema, dance, and populate my mind with dreams. I like to chill around good food as any Mediterranean individual although I am not much of a chef.

I can describe myself as a easy going , calm and peaceful individual. A cultivated, like minded person with a sharp sense of observation and a creative soul that always tries to see the world in bright colors .

PHILOSOPHY

I am a positive, romantic and idealist person. My personal philosophy is close to these three aspects of my personality.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived in China for a year and a half for profissional reasons and it was a great adventure. I was based in a small city of 8 million people about 150km from Shanghai where almost nobody could understand my poor Mandarim or even speak English. I was forced by necessity to find strategies to make myself understand by making drawings. I hold memorable histories of my contact with the Chinese culture.
