I was born in 1983, and from an early age I began to feel an enormous fascination for the ocean and nature. I became a marine biologist specialized in sea turtles, and I also have experience in other marine species like whales, dolphins, sharks and birds.
My professional experience has been obtained in many natural and cultural environments and in several countries, Portugal (mainland and Azores islands), Brazil, Cape Verde (Boa Vista, Santiago and Sal islands) and Sao Tome and Principe are the ones I highlight.
Apart from being a nature guide I´m also a diving guide and passionate about photography.
