Lisbon, Portugal

English, Portuguese


People tell me that I am a friendly and communicative person, always ready to help. Well, like most of the Portuguese population. I was born and raised in Lisbon. I grew up at Sant' Ana Hill, in the heart of the city. By the hand of my grandfather, I discovered Lisbon secrets. Later, I explored the north of Lisbon west coast searching for the best surf spots and pure nature. My love for sharing my culture and roots with travelers led me to study tourism in the university, and became a tour guide. I deeply studied my country. Since then, I enthusiastically welcome travelers from the whole world, with whom I share the authentic Portugal. I always divided my time between the city and the beach. I am surfing since the early 90's and dedicated an important part of my life to the ocean, as a surfer, and as a surf instructor. In 2004 I opened a beach bar. For some years, I was able to offer the best of our sea food, petiscos (Portuguese Tapas) and wine. All combined with a great view and great music. Yea, music is my other passion. I studied Jazz drumming and played drums and percussion in several projects. As a music lover, I developed some DJ skills and I am still working occasionally. I am now a family man. I have 2 kids and being a parent is the biggest and best adventure of my life. Nowadays, I uncover my local knowledge and I share with travelers genuine and unique moments. As a passionate host, I invite you to taste and feel the authentic "Oeste" region, so close to Lisbon, where every pleasure of the senses can be satisfied.
