Born in Lisbon in 1958.
With a degree in architecture and having worked in various places around the globe, he has succeeded in harmonizing discipline and rigour, two of the features that define him, with being a passionate man open to the world.
A tireless traveller since boyhood, he knows a significant part of the Globe, which has enabled him to gain a comprehensive knowledge of other cultures. He made a commitment to himself of knowing the World Heritage Sites, which has since been one of his priorities when he visits a country.
He took up photography as a hobby many years ago, something that is indissociably linked to his travels. His routine also includes other activities: Jogging, scuba-diving, skydiving and skiing, among others.
He has published a number of articles on travel in specialized magazines, both in Portugal as in Brazil where he currently works and lives.
