Biography

An interest for physics and mathematics led me to study Mechanical Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon. I then joined Faber Ventures as a Product Designer integrating the teams of ambitious startups, bringing stories from Google documents to successful products with investments by the biggest European accelerators such as Techstars & Seedcamp London.


I then decided to move to Stockholm where I studied Interactive Art Direction at Hyper Island. Later, I moved to New York to work for Hello Monday. Now, I live in Portland working for Instrument. I have done projects for clients such as Google, LG, Johnson & Johnson, The Nature Conservancy, Moog Music, Snapchat & Dropbox. I am a sucker for side projects so feel free to shoot me an email.
