About Me

I am a Visual Designer born and raised in the sunny Portugal and I create digital experiences such as Branding, Web Design, UI / UX Design and App Design.

Having worked together with some companies and digital agencies for the last 10+ years I’ve been able to collaborate on some great projects and brands by doing a little bit of everything from Branding to Web, from UX to UI and Visual Design focusing on different business types from Tourism to Food and Fashion, from B2C to B2B.

We live in a constantly changing world that bring us the need to always be learning and improve in order to keep up with the evolution. This is an ongoing learning experience and it’s all about being up to date. That’s why blogs, podcasts, videos and talks are a big part of my daily routine.

Life is not just work. So, what do I do on my free time? Easy! I enjoy relaxing, traveling around the globe with my lovely girlfriend ,listening some good tunes and watch some good shows and movies.

Also, I normally put ideas in place by running, swimming or by picking something from the bookshelf and take a good moment to read.

Here's a selection of some of the projects I had the pleasure to work and be involved in together with amazing people and teams.
