Since I was in college, I had this desire of learning and working with arts, but my steps took me to the opposite way. I started by studying sciences, with a degree and a Masters in Microbiology and I worked five years as a research scientist.
Arts were in the “hobbies shelf” and the only thing that I had different from science was my DJ gigs by the name Phizz. On July of 2013 I decided to leave my science career and I started working in events production with Match-Attack and Portugal Festival Awards, as a music publicist in my project CONCERTina – after I took a Marketing and Musical Production course. Then I opened a cultural cooperative called FWD Coop with some friends and we did amazing stuff, featured by a music film festival called Muvi Lisboa. I was a music critic too for Fest Magazine and Rua de Baixo webzines.
At that time, I was the brand voice, digital marketing, social media manager and press media manager of CONCERTina, Muvi Lisboa, FWD Coop, DJ Phizz and for other punctual jobs that I had. I developed all the graphic design for DJ Phizz communication and some for Muvi Lisboa. I was one of the directors and producers of Muvi Lisboa Festival 2014 and I did his website in Wordpress without knowing Wordpress technical stuff. I've worked for Arte Sonora music magazine for three months and I did part of their communication with clients, graphic design and copywriting.
And then I went to SXSW 2014 Festival and it changed my life. I’ve opened my mind and that’s when I took a Web design & Interactive intense course this year of 2015, multiple workshops in Digital Content and Marketing Strategy, Copywriting, Storytelling and brand voice, UX and Lean UX, Creativity Shaker.
I am intrigued with colours, shapes and I want to understand why and how people are moved by experience digital platforms.
Nowadays I continue with DJ gigs, I have a music agency called Pinuts and I'm a freelance looking for better ways to growing in the design and front-end development.
