I was born in Porto and I went to Germany with 7 years where I did my schooling. I started to study in the area of ​​Electro technical Engineering, but I interrupted my studies to go live in Paris. In Paris, at the age of 20, I began my career as a businessman through various experiences and businesses in the textile industry. At the age of 27, after having opened several stores in Paris, I returned to Germany to open a textile factory based on import and export. I sold it 8 years later to be able to return to Portugal. In Portugal, I opened 2 newspapers (an informational and another free distribution) and it was at this time that I met and started to get interested in real estate. Together with my wife we founded in the year 1999 the "Villas Luz".

I also worked in the Pulido Valente Hospital, that is to say, the Hospital in the North Lisbon center, that reunites the Pulido Valente with the Hospital Santa Maria. Do not confuse pharmaceutical techniques and pharmaceuticals as they are two different degrees.
