I was Born in Lisbon in 1971, and began my professional career at Gabinete Moura-George Design Studio, at the same i was studing to take my degree in Industrial Design at IADE.
After the studies i went through a Design studio until i discovered Advertising in 199g at EuroRSCG Portugal. After years of working on projects for portuguese brands such as Continente, Sagres, Marconi, Peugeot, TMN, Mimosa, Adágio, Cable TV and EDP, among others, i moved to Publicis Lisbon where as Head of Art and Creative Supervisor. During this period i worked clients such as Renault, Pedras Salgadas, Adágio, Carlsberg and Vitalis.
In 2008 i embraced the Creative supervision of BBDO Portugal where i developed projects for Galp, Azeite Gallo, Zon, BES and Jumbo. At the same time i attended the master’s degree in “Communication and Arts” at FCSH – Universidade Nova de Lisboa.
In 2010 i moved to a new partnership and started working for the Angolan market. For two years i worked clients such as Banco Espírito Santo Angola, TV Zimbo, Planet Earth Institute and Exame Magazine among others.
In October 2012 i decided to embrace a more personal project and created my own studio: RocketSeven.
