I'm a young Portuguese Architect. I’ve managed my first work, from conception to construction. This experience, together with my first years of practice as an Architect Trainee and Junior Architect showed me the joy, the responsibility and seriousness of all phases of the profession.
I’m also a Karate Athlete and coach who loves to read, write, draw, paint and meet different people. These multiple interests stimulate my life.
I’ve trained myself to keep improving while always respecting the ones around me. Words like Character, Honesty, Effort, Humbleness, Ambition and Self-Control characterize my professional approach.
I’m strongly motivated by other cultures, countries and languages. For me to travel is a great experience which I hope to do regularly. I’ve achieved strong communication skills in Portuguese (mother tongue), English and Spanish, through education and regular practice.
