Born in beautiful Lisbon, Portugal. Hated school. Loved the streets. But went on later to study arts and latin-american studies at SFSU in San Francisco, California. Phd in art history at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, England. And currently living in the wonderful city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, teaching english, translating texts, researching urban art, blogging at ARThropophagyas and Identitas, and writing for different publications. I'm a nomad at heart, curious about all cultures, sub-cultures and counter-cultures, passionate about travelling, learning and writing.
