I like to work in close collaboration with people with different backgrounds. I have a flexible and easy going personality and can quickly adapt to different circumstances while keeping an overview of project's schedule, challenges and budget. I frequently deal with authors, curators, other exhibition designers, graphic designers and production crews.
I'm currently interested in designing environments for challenging cross-media projects merging physical works with multi screen installations, interactivity, mixing art with science and AI.
I graduated in Architecture at Lusíada University in Portugal and did a post graduation in Medieval Studies at FLUP, Portugal. Afterwords he worked as an architect, industrial designer (URBconcept) and 3D visual artist until 2010. Since then I moved to Amsterdam and founded AWAREmedia a company responsible for several works in promotional videos and photography works. I have been involved on other projects such as the Labfolio project – a digital photo sales platform for photographers and the Awaremag – a digital magazine for the iPad targeted at emerging photojournalism providing documentary works by local authors. Later I collaborated with several NGO’s in SE Asia doing mostly documental photography. In 2015 I started working on Ydoc, an open platform to share and sell documentary photography and visual storytelling, in the areas of strategy and business planning. And I have been involved in exhibition planning, design and production since 2015.
