I studied and worked in contemporary art up to 2011, but the sounds of the Blues and Folk had increasingly resonated in me, for its rawness, for its truth.

The interest and the curiosity for handmade crafts and the building of instruments started early so I decided then, in the same year, to devote myself to the building of acoustic guitars. To build guitars became a passion, the perfect crossroad between creativity, skill and pleasure!

Between 2011 and 2012 I followed a traineeship in the workshop of luthier Fernando Meireles in Coimbra, and between 2012 and 2013 one more in the workshop of luthier Ludovic Barrier in Paris.

In 2013 I started my own workshop in Coimbra and began my activity as a full time luthier.
