I was born in Gondomar, in November 1968.
After about 5 years living in Vila do Castelo, I have been living in Vila do Conde for the last two decades.
In 1995, I completed a degree in Plastic Arts-Painting, at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto, having been a scholarship holder of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in the academic year 1994/1995.
In 2005, I took a postgraduate degree in Multimedia Technology, at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto.
In 2012, I took a Master's Degree in Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto.
Since 2018 I am a doctoral student in Contemporary Art, at Colégio das Artes, University of Coimbra.
I have been teaching in the 3rd cycle and secondary since 1995. Since 2003 I have been teaching mainly in professional education, in the Multimedia and Graphic Design courses and I was a teacher for 9 years, between 2009 and 2018, in the Multimedia Technology course at the Polytechnic Institute of Oporto.
