I'm a writer and director based in London, with a unique point of view, and a lot to say. Quickly outgrowing the Lisbon suburbs where I grew up, I've now lived in three countries spanned across two continents. I thrive in a multicultural environment, where so often what is most peculiar and universal about the human experience is revealed. This observation is what fuels my creative energy, which I believe is a force for good.
I've gathered more than 8 million views on YouTube for my section, a same sex love story, of a collaborative feature film called “What’s New About Love?”. This film also won the TAP Award for Best Portuguese Feature Film at the IndieLisboa International Film Festival, was selected for a number of other international film festivals like Raindance and São Paulo, had commercial distribution, and was released to DVD and VOD.
Always inspired by my background in painting, I continue to work on smaller scale projects, like my first UK production, the art film “Hurry Up And Wait!”, screened at the BFI on December 2019.
I'm fully invested in a career as a filmmaker in the UK. The mentorship I took from Raindance, and the course I did at NFTS have really introduced me to how the British film industry works; and on the practical side, I'm writing and developing new feature film projects.
