Founder and CEO
When I get asked what my job is, the immediate answer is reporter, even though I currently have another challenge at hand: running Webtexto, the company I founded with a group of reporters back in 2000. I can't sit still and love launching new projects. If there's a motto I follow is that every problem has a solution. Most of my career was dedicated to journalism, first at newsmagazines Visão, Focus and Dia D (published by Público daily) as well as Semanário Económico, a weekly financial newspaper. I worked in the politics and economics sections and got my experience in financial markets working for Dow Jones Portuguese language service. Also, I authored the biography "Paulo Azevedo: Nascido para liderar".
Bureau chief and editor
Midway through my Journalism degree at Escola Superior de Comunicação Social, in Lisbon, I thought economics was the one thing I wouldn't work in. Eleven years later, I'm not so sure. I started with Dow Jones Portuguese service, specialized in financial markets and have been here ever since, working not only for the Portuguese wire, but also for the international service, including The Wall Street Journal. Despite this long-term relationship, my professional experience includes some articles for Jornal de Negócios, about entrepreneurship, innovation and SMEs. Outside the office, I'm a fierce soccer fan and a binge watcher of TV series.
Financial news is now my day-to-day after switching the numbers of soccer for those of stock markets and the sovereign-debt crisis. I graduated in Journalism at Escola Superior de Comunicação Social, in Lisbon, and my first professional experience was at sports daily Record. I worked for specialized magazines at the International Faculty for Executives before arriving at Webtexto, to work for Dow Jones Portuguese service. Ingenious and curious, new technologies are one of my passions and maybe that's why my coworkers frequently ask for help with all tech-related issues.
Marketing and communications were never in my professional plans. I started my career as a journalist in the Portuguese service of Dow Jones Newswires, where I worked for five years and developed skills as a reporter. My professional experience includes online magazine Portugal Daily View and Webtexto's EPG project. But the opportunity to integrate a new project led me to rethink my career. Currently, I am dedicated to the creation of content and graphic design for content-marketing projects. Born in Algarve, addicted to TV series and graphic design, I split my time between Lisbon and the southern city of Albufeira.
Managing social networks and doing analytics are my professional passions and also the main focus of my career since I dedicated my work to content marketing. I’ve studied journalism at Escola Superior de Comunicação Social, in Lisbon, where I learned the foundations for being a good reporter. At Magazine HD I got new skills but it was at Webtexto that I had the opportunity to grow as a professional and as a person. Currently, I coordinate Webtexto's EPG service, while specializing in a new passion: social-network management.
I graduated in Corporate Communication but my true interest was in Journalism, influenced by reading Grande Reportagem and Independente. A journalism course at Cenjor confirmed that. For almost seven years at Focus newsmagazine I followed Portugal's political scene -- which I still do like it was House of Cards. After a tenure at weekly magazine Sábado, I changed to a new area once more: economy and financial markets at Dow Jones Portuguese service. Over the course of my more than 10 years as a journalist, I also wrote about traveling for an on-flight magazine of an air carrier.
I was only seven when I inherited a radio from my dad. With that little box came a legacy that lives till today: thirst for knowledge and culture. That radio introduced me to the country and the world, whose great events became part of my memory. At the age of 12, when Portugal was ready to welcome the single currency, I bought my first newspaper to learn everything about the Euro. It was closer to the age of 15 that the will to narrate the world set in. It was September 11, 2001. I graduated in Journalism at Escola Superior de Comunicação Social, in Lisbon, and have worked in several areas. Today, I'm part of Dow Jones Portuguese service team.
