Profile_02

I want to design great stories.
But first, let me tell you mine.

Originally from Lisbon, in Portugal, from an early age I understood my path was alongside the creatives, and so I followed it, taking a degree in Communication Design, followed by an exchange in Graphic Design & Animation in Groningen, in the Netherlands.

Originally from Lisbon, in Portugal, from an early age I understood my path was alongside the creatives, and so I followed it, taking a degree in Communication Design, followed by an exchange in Graphic Design & Animation in Groningen, in the Netherlands.

After having experienced more than 2 years in different design agencies and studios in sunny Lisbon, I decided to take a step further.

At the moment, I am living in Hamburg and working at Peter Schmidt Group as a Branding and Packaging Designer.
