About me

About me

I born in Lisbon (Portugal), at a very young age I moved with my family to Spain where I grew up and graduate in arts and humanities in high school. In 2003 I started my first degree in Linguistics and English in uni and took a gap year to study a one-year diploma in production and direction for film and tv. In 2011 I moved to London to get further training in directing and acting until 2015. 

I graduated in 2019 with a BA in Film Studies at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, where I did develop my final year major project about the “Contemporary Ibero-American productions and their distribution in the film industry in comparison with Hollywood”. During my time at uni in Cambridge, I produced my own projects and also for other young filmmakers/directors. I’ve worked as a content producer for the Student Union at Anglia Ruskin University. I’ve worked and volunteered in different film festivals in UK and Europe (Cambridge Film Festival, Watersprite, BFI, Berlin Film Festival, IFFR, FEST- New Directors, Sundance London, etc).  I have been the creative director and the lead facilitator for the workshops at Next Move Arts, a graduate hub platform that creates new opportunities for those interested in the film industry who wish to acquire practical skills in different areas. I did some collaborations with Balik Arts as a facilitator in film documentary workshops in Skill Reels for young students from Turkey during Sept 2018 (where I also worked as a location manager for a film crew from Turkey meanwhile shooting their film).

From 2020 until recently I’ve worked as a Junior Content Editor/Producer for Little Dot Studios. At the moment I do freelance work as a content producer for social media, producing some projects and I’m a jury curator for The Galactic Imaginarium Sci-Fi Film Festival in Romania.  I’m finishing my MA in Film Distribution and Marketing at BCU (Birmingham City University).

My other passions are music, history, art, and travel when the opportunity comes to visit a new country and get to know another culture. I speak 3 languages fluently which are Portuguese, Spanish, and English; a basic French and Italian.​​​​​​​
