I was born in Campo Maior in 1983 and I live now in Lisbon. I graduated in Communication Design and took a master’s degree in Communication Design and New Media, both at the Fine Arts Faculty of Lisbon. I attended the Independent Study Program at Maumaus - School of Visual Arts and besides my activity as a movie director I also am a graphic designer.

My professional experience began while still at school, as a photographer for surveys of architecture and its natural environment. Afterwards I designed the layout of the books that resulted thence and other graphic design productions. My interest in video as a language led me to an artist residence and a nine-month internship in Nodar, in the eastern mountains of Portugal, where I directed a movie inspired by the way people built and inhabited these places. The movies I made afterwards explored variations of this approach, i.e. the interaction between people, built and natural space.
