I’m a Portuguese musician based in Den Haag, the Netherlands.

I perform live and create music within several projects, having worked with several fine musicians and artists. 

You can find an interesting variety of performances and creations in my work, having co-founded several groups where I perform and compose music, such as:

Flowers/Ghosts & Echoes - an Experimental and Improvisational Post-Rock/Ambient audio-visual group
- a Contemporary Jazz quintet
Zero Happy Campers
- an Improvisational Free-Rock group
Sunder Blunder
- a Math-Rock/Post-Rock trio
The Unmoored Dreaming - a Free-Jazz group

I also lead my own group under my own name and often collaborate with other musicians in several musical contexts, like Jazz, Free-Improvised Music, Singer-Songwriter music and even Hardcore bands, either as a member of a collective or sideman.

Lately I've also ventured a bit into orchestral composition, having written the music for a Horror game called Wayward Harbour, available and free to download on Steam.

I have a few official releases like:

Stable As The Earth Stops Spinning with Then They Flew
\​\​\​\​\​\​\​\​\ drift /​/​/​/​/​/​/ flux \​\​\​\​\​\​\​\​\ change |​|​|​|​|​|​|​|​| with Flowers/Ghosts & Echoes
The Unmoored Dreaming with The Unmoored Dreaming
with Zero Happy Campers

I've also performed in several venues and festivals across Europe like the Rewire Festival at Korzo Theater, In Bloom Series at Korzo Theater, Onze Ambassade Festival at West Gallery, Musicon, opening for Maranha, Corsano & Young at WORM, OCCII, Simplon UP, Vechtclub, La Conserve, Klankhaven, Walter Werkplaats, Hot Clube de Portugal, Casa da Cultura de Setúbal, Zaratan, Circulo de Jazz Festival at Sociedade Musical Capricho Setubalense, Ciné Incrível Alma Danada, Oficinas do Convento, Körsbärsgården and several more.

I also teach private guitar lessons to several different students. This is an activity that I consider to be very valuable and enjoyable, not only because of how gratifying it is to pass on the knowledge and help people accomplish their goals, but because of how it also helps me to keep improving as a musician. 

I’ve completed two Bachelor’s degrees in Jazz Guitar.

In the Lusíada University of Lisbon, from 2011 to 2014, where I studied with Ricardo Pinheiro, André Fernandes, Demian Cabaud, Mário Delgado, Vasco Mendonça, Gonçalo Marques, Desidério Lázaro.

In the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague, from 2015 to 2018, where I studied with Eef Albers, Wim Bronnenberg, John Ruocco, Patrick Schenkius, Henk Huizinga, Johan van Kreij.

I've also completed a Master's degree in Jazz Guitar in the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp, having started it in September 2020 and graduated in June 2022, where I studied with Frederik Leroux-Roels, Hendrik Braeckman, Teun Verbruggen, Bo van der Werf, Ben Sluijs and Mathias Coppens.
