About me

I'm a freelance writer, creative director, and photographer based in Lisbon.
I've written for publications like CNN
and National Geographic, among others. My brand work spans art direction, editorial strategy, copywriting and consultancy. 

Besides working with magazines and brands, I'm currently working on a documentary and a non-fiction book about independent media in Lisbon.

A little bit more about me

Visuals and words are my chicken or the egg – I'm wired to think in both, indissociably, at all times.
I believe that a story without an audience is pointless and I'm passionate about finding clear, beautiful and captivating verbal and visual expressions to communicate a message.

I'm drawn to nuanced narratives and I dislike formulaic approaches. I'm suspicious of people who don’t like to laugh. I take an interest in all things culture, and in the people and ideas changing the world.
I also love chocolate.
