Work history


Creative Strategist Partner

Nhamii Ice Dreams

Nov 2014
  • So... I really wanted to make some changes in my life. I wanted to take a step out of my comfort zone. That's when i left my Job as a Senior Strategic Planner in Fuel Lisboa - Havas Worldwide group - and moved to Cape Verde, Santiago Island. I started wondering what kind of business could really change the market standards in a country where they have more than 30o sunny days a year. So i opened an Ice Cream Shop. Yep, that's right. Ice Creams. So i started creating my brand, from bottom to top and it really helped me rediscovering the unique beauty of the Strategic Creative process.
