About me

I was born in Lisboa where I also studied. Currently, I am living in Cascais, a town near Lisboa, between the Atlantic and the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.
I love to travel, going to new places and discover different cultures from mine, trying to capture the complexity and beauty of this world. I love to meet new people with different cultures and backgrounds.
I also love Nature and outdoors activities. I like to learn new things from the most varied areas such as history; gastronomy; music; science; art and ecology are some of the topics that I like.
I think I am a simple, easygoing and open-minded person. I am a very curious guy.
