As a professional video journalist, I'm interested in storytelling, well told stories, no matter what the topics are. Mostly focused on society, culture and science, I've been working as an independent video and audio content producer for third-parties, either for media and press (ex., correspondent in Portugal BBC Mundo, or missions to international sport events), and at the same time, particular clients who request a full service to myself, wether in Portugal or anywhere abroad. I am ready to hunt for a story to be told.
