Personal information
I believe that working hard can get you far. I've always lived with this idea and already settled it as my motto a long time ago. Deadlines are no problem for me. I actually need deadlines to get my schedule organised and my workflow intact. I read a lot, I love to be informed, I dedicate much of my time getting my dreams fulfilled and my clients' as well. Feel free to drop me a line and we'll talk.

I graduated from University of Aveiro, Portugal, in 2008 with a Languages and Specialised Translation degree.

In 2009, I moved to Lisbon, Portugal, to start an internship at MAGNÉTICA MAGAZINE where I translated the entire magazine from Portuguese into English. I did this for over a year and then join the team to become a writer as well. After a few months, I was already joggling translation, writing, revision, and content management. In the meantime, I kept my freelance career going and worked for a few clients, namely Computer Arts Portugal (no longer exists) and Dédalo Magazine.

In 2012, I co-found Colectivo 71.86, a small business focused on creative content development, ghostwriting, translation, revision, and social media. I also own a webzine called ALMANAQUE (soon to become bilingual) and a personal blog, VOLTA DO MAR.

Idioms & other information
I mainly translate from English into Portuguese (European), Portuguese (European) into English, and French into Portuguese (European). I'm a proud TED Translator. I'm always available for chatting and engage in new work. I love to be challenged, most of all.

Right now, I'm working with a handful of clients as a writer and translator, mainly lifestyle-driven magazines and websites.
