Back in 2007, the year I finished my Communications & Multimedia degree at Universidade de Trás os Montes e Alto Douro, I moved to Lisbon to specialize in Motion Graphics at ETIC.
Spent the first 3 years of my professional life working for web/advertising agencies as an Interactive Designer, essentially, coding animations with ActionScript for websites.
In between, I had some freelance work that helped me develop motion design skills. In 2012 I've started my first job as a full-time motion designer at a TV Sports channel working on several broadcast graphics projects. After a year I joined Nebula Studios, working close to advertising agencies on the production of all kinds of motion graphics/animation projects.
In 2016 I moved to Porto and founded a studio with my friend João - Check it Out Studio, where I became a director, producer, and manager.
From 2018 to 2020 I lectured and coordinated the Motion Design course at Lisbon School of Design (Porto).
Currently, I'm working from Lisbon as an independent director and motion designer for clients worldwide.
I am currently based in a beautiful place called Gesso Ateliers. An amazing and bright coworking space and I'm lucky to be surrounded by so many talented people.
As a digital art creator in a competitive market constantly evolving, I always seek new projects, software, and techniques to push up my levels.
Every Wednesday, I play drums with my friends - we've done it for 10 years, and we still plan to become a band :D
In my spare time, I like to read a book, swim, ride my moto, hang out with friends and nice people, have a beer and chat, and go to the beach (or just the comfort of my couch and blankets on winter days).
