About me

My path is split between scientific and artistic approaches. The scientific facilitates a holistic vision with a broad scope and systemic perspective, while the artistic allows for creative expression and connecting with others. Music composition and production were the starting point, the first seed. Social media, marketing and communication management, web design, imagery and video content generation, and social network management have all followed as equally vital components. Each discipline is like a plant in a garden I am growing. This garden, my new project, is called Amber Foil. Like any attentive gardener, I am caring not only for each individual plant, but also for the way in which they interact. This is not a private garden. It is an experience and virtual space I am building for visitors, so I must tend to the ways in which the public can access it. Amber Foil is becoming a place of intersection for a diversity of plant species (internal and external networks and content), both native to the ecosystem (my creation) and also imported through the projects of others via strong collaborative bonds. These bonds began in my city, Lisbon, and are reaching quickly into a global environment. This holistic approach is present in all of my present projects, and equally in the way I enter into the projects of others. My own projects have served as both playground and classroom for developing the skills needed to contribute resources to other creatives.
