Born in Paris, France and raised in Portugal, I dropped Law School at 22 to pursue two of my biggest passions in life: travel and writing.
While growing up, I didn’t know exactly what profession I wanted to do, but I knew for sure that traveling and capturing beautiful moments should be an essential part of my life.
I figured that the rest will follow and will ultimately find my path. This path I found it here on my channels thanks to my partner, Diogo, and to all of you.
Since the beginning, my content has been focused on sharing my personal journey as a globetrotter and inspire you to explore more, do more, create more, and live the very best of your life.
3 years later and after 60 countries explored, I feel really blessed to have had the opportunity to be the first influencer/blogger to discover North Island – the most exclusive hotel in the world – and collaborate in many digital productions with the most prestigious brands in the Hospitality industry from Four Seasons, Soneva, Six Senses, St. Regis, Ritz-Carlton, Sofitel Hotels & Resorts, Relais & Chateaux, Mandarin Oriental, to Peninsula Hotels, and many more.
As I started modeling at 12 years old (I was indeed represented by one of the best model agencies in Portugal doing both runway and campaigns), I continue to work with beauty, cosmetic and fashion brands such as Rosa Clara, Daniel Wellington, Net-A-Porter, LuisaViaRoma, Vanity Planet, Josefinas, etc.
For more information about my work, kindly request my media kit here.
I have been a Panel and Keynote speaker at several summits sharing not only my personal story and journey as an influencer (and ultimately as a digital entrepreneur), but also to discuss personal branding, influence marketing, entrepreneurship, personal development, and more. If you would like to check my last Panel click here.
Even if today someone would ask what is my profession, I couldn’t pick just one: from writer, storyteller, brand consultant, photographer, model, stylist, travel editor to speaker, I’m all of it, but I’m also, and most probably above it all, an eternal crazy soul ready to start new ventures and projects in a heartbeat.
This website (and blog) has been my personal diary to share with you all my experiences, travels, lifestyle, ventures, and more.
From the mysterious land of Morocco, the deserted island of Eleuthera, the ancient Pyramids of Giza, to the frenetic cities of Paris, Tokyo, LA and New York, I hope my stories will inspire you to go out there and start creating yours.
Because in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. But the life in your years.
I’m always looking for the next getaway, adventure, perfect spot, or inspiration, so don’t hesitate to contact me or share with me your own experience leaving a comment below.
Also, feel free to make any question about my blog or about me that you would like to know, this is the right place to ask!
I will do my best to reply in a timely manner.
See You Soon!
