I spend my days idealizing and creating communication strategies that are made for humans, not for algorithms. Believing that the Internet can help us grown, learn and connect, I help cultural institutions and technologists to use social media platforms, online communities, and mailing lists as mindful tools to bring us together. Backed up with research principles, I create digital media strategies that protect people's time and attention, showing that online content can be more than a mirror for self-delusion. 

Curious about online identities and worldwide web neighborhoods, I founded Nevoazul, a magazine about how we deal with content in the information age. Since 2016, we have edited four issues, presented our work at Instituto, and organized a talks program at Criatech - Digital Creativity & Technology.

I currently spend my days as a community manager at Porto Design Biennale where I'm responsible for everything related to communications, social media, and content creations under the theme Alter-Realities: Designing the Present. Before that, I had the chance to work with ManifestoFestival de Cinema de Aventura, and Nomad, among several others. 

I also do some user researcher work, helping digital services to uncover the barriers or frustrations users have. The most recent work I developed in this field was for Classe B. I conducted exploratory user interviews with freelancers from different professions to understand their needs and worries as independent workers in Portugal.
