I was born in 86, I grew up with the albums of The Smiths and Talking Heads, and since I was little I get lost in the universe of books and stories. These were the reasons why, years later, I decided to study Journalism and I was fascinated by the universe of travel, cultures and traditions. It was also this desire that led me to study in Ljubljana (Slovenia) and to work in cinema in Santiago de Compostela (Spain).
In professional terms, and after a period of several years in journalism and television and cinema production, in 2013 I decided to change and leave my comfort zone. I trained in Entrepreneurship in Cultural Industries, in Video Capture and Editing and in Communication Strategies and became Communication Manager of Tec Labs, the incubator of the Faculty of Sciences of ULisboa, where my main functions were the management of social networks and online platforms, press relations, content and event production, video and image editing, as well as training in the areas of entrepreneurship, communication and design thinking.
More recently, I embraced the challenge of coordinating the same incubator after almost six years of evolution and learning in support of students, researchers and entrepreneurs with scientific and technological projects.
