He completed his first degree in Social and Cultural Communication at Universidade Católica Portuguesa, in Lisbon.
In the summer of 2015 he had the opportunity to work alongside some of the best journalists in Portugal during an internship at Expresso. He also played a part in the creation of BETup – an entrepreneurship news website that he worked on for six months.
