I born in Lisbon in 1958, I graduated in IST in Electrical Engineering, and worked for 34 years in the Information Systems industry.

From an early age I was in contact with the world of images (photography and film), by paternal influence, but only in 2004 I started to develop this passion.

Since 2012, I’m full-time dedicate to photographic art. I’m not an expert photographer in a specific theme, instead I seek my identity on various topics that I try to develop.
