I come from Setúbal, a small town of fishermen, industrial workers, bohemians, poets, artists and proudly "victorian" fans (VFC). I grow up surrounded by the Sado's estuary, Arrabida hill's, Troia's peninsula and Atlantic Ocean, and lived until finish High School, in Design. Then I jumped to Lisbon and studied 3 years of Fashion Design at Technical University of Lisbon (Portugal), until understood that, and beside the fact of lovin Lx, I don't want to live in a big city. So I decided to make a restart in other place.

Discovered Faro, a small sunny city, surrounded by Ria Formosa laggon, sandy Islands, Mediterranean/Altlantic waters, Algarve's crag and Caldeirão Hill's, where I still live and that inspires me most, and have an airport that allows me to visit other places. Here I made my degree in Communication Design, from the University of Algarve (Portugal), where I had the oportunity to attend to Tomas Bata University (Czech Republic) in the Erasmus programme. Last 7 years I have been working in several areas related with the media production, visual communication, visual arts, furniture, almost everything that envolves creativity, challenge and colour of course!

Right now I am working both in the development of creative projects as in education, that I specially love and enjoy, in several technical and professional schools in the region. In addition to these activities I am one of the co-founders and presently Chairman of direction of SDA Southern Designers Association, a non-profit and socio-professional youth organization, based in Algarve.
