A Sociologist in love with Art.
Literature is one of his greatest passions, and in his tour he brings to life the words that have best captured Lisbon.
He dreams of one day contributing to all the words written about the city, with some new words of his own.
Born and raised in Lisbon, he is laid-back, interested in sharing experiencies, Loves history, archeology, legends and urban myths, having knowledge of many unofficial stories and with extreme imagination, he creates his own theories, it’s more akin to a having a local good friend show you around their city experience or telling you a tale.
Loves to explore places and know people. He is a backpacker willing for adventure.
His biggest challeng is to find constinously new sensations, new emotions throughout what he does.
