ABOUT

"It's all about the truth. I've always been committed to finding the truth in things. Be it a moment, a story, a person, a view, you name it. The desire to portray it in it's best possible way, to bring it to a new life, under my own perception, with honesty and passion, that's what moves me.

It's that truth, the raw authenticity and beauty that resides within everything, the life and power of things, that I constantly aim to discover, to focus on, to enhance, to transform and recreate at the core of my work. And it's my goal to make you feel it. It doesn't matter if it's a snapshot of reality or an intricate fictional narrative, if it's a stream of images, words or sounds. I'll put my soul into it and leave a part of it there.

I graduated in Cinema, Video and Multimedia Communication in Lisbon, Portugal, by Lusófona University. I participated in international programs. My short movies were chosen for festivals across the globe. I worked as a freelancer almost since the moment I started studying.  I travelled a lot (more than 30 countries now). I carried a camera everywhere and took thousands of photographs. I played in several bands (since I was 13). I devoted myself to the crafts I love. I lived them. Fully. I still do.

Before I knew it, I was being represent by one of the most well known and respected film production companies in the Portuguese advertising industry, Garage Films. Which leads to where I am now.

Now I'm a film director in the advertising industry. And I'm still a photographer, a musician, a traveller. Yeah, I love it, I'm quite blessed."
