I was born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1977. I always drew, but I started to draw caricatures in 2003; ten years ago. I never studied art in school or taken workshops... everything i know, i taught myself. In 2008 I started profesionally taken on commissions for caricature, ilustration and comics and today I work with companies and enterprise clients in Brasil, Italy, Germany, France, Holand, Angola and around the world. I have a partnership with a footbal club in Portugal (F.C.Porto) where they use my caricatures in some player merchandise. I was invited to participate on a tv show in Portugal, drawing during 2 seasons for a total of 23 episodes. Some of my awards include:
