My story without a limited number of words wrapped in the form of chronology...Just because. Let me know if it gets too boring.

I was born in a Portuguese small coasted town called A-ver-o-mar ("Watching-the-sea" in Portuguese), one week after the release of "Home Alone".

Since my childhood I had a strong connection to creativity and arts, spending most of my time drawing and...just kidding! As a child, I basically played outside with friends and enjoyed a few videogames; as a pre-teen, I played a lot of videogames and watched tons of anime.

All the art stuff began when I decided to study Visual Arts in high school. Not a conscious decision at all but the remaining options weren't very seductive.

By the last year of high school, I had an amazing teacher who showed me what graphic design and animation looked like in a creator's perspective.

After that so enlightened high school experience, I decided to chase a design career and applied to ESAD School of Arts and Design, enrolling in a Digital Arts & Multimedia degree. During those three years, I created a strong bond with graphic design, web and, especially, animation and motion graphics.

During the third and last year, I had my first Motion Graphics class and started to be curious about it, searching, watching and reading about it. I came across a video that made me realize what Motion Design actually was and how we could mix design with animation. That video was quite important to me and gave me a boost to seek what I luckily do today. Thank you for all the inspiration, Clim and Sebas!

I was into Motion Design so bad that I had to explore and learn more about it so I jumped into a Motion Design post-graduation in the same university and had the privilege to take classes by Michael Marcondes, Sebastian Bap, Lucas Zanotto and other amazing teachers.

As I finished the post-graduation, I was invited to intern on a great Barcelona based studio, Bungalow. I made my bags, put my ass on a plane and flew to Barcelona. I worked there for a year, alongside my good friend Carlos Meinedo, and learned so much (I hope I didn't forget everything by now) with all of them: Ibon Landa, Ignasi Font, Ivan Jurado, Lara Saborido, Lluis Murua and Marco Petrucci.

After one year of such fun times in Barcelona, Carlos and I decided to come back to Portugal and start our own studio in Porto. We co-founded Snack Studio with my big sister, Adriana Leites, and created solutions for small and worldwide clients always mixing graphic design, illustration and animation.

Almost four years later, we collectively agreed to end the project and take all the great experiences and knowledge to different professional paths. And yes, we're still great friends.

The melancholic break up (not) of Snack Studio led me to a tough decision: working for another studio or give it a shot in the freelance jungle. With all the experience I got from running my own studio: project management, directing teams, keep an organized accounting, bureaucratic and business stuff, client meetings...I thought freelancing would be a good idea. Well...I'm still trying to figure that out.

To complement this creative and client-driven side, I'm also teaching Motion Design (the little I know) at FLAG and LSD - Lisbon School of Design.

Along with all this design and animation side, I have a strong relationship with performing arts, being an active cultural promoter and artistic director in different projects: FIS - International Solo Festival and Colectivo Grua.
