About João

Born in the north of Portugal (Europe) on 1990, I was always fond of one thing: stories. At a young age, they came through my grandfather who told me all kinds of different stories. Eventually, he started writing his own just so he could tell me new ones. The next step was obvious: I mastered the art of lying and making stuff up. "Who broke the chair?!" - my mother yelled. "I was avoiding a mosquito attack by suddenly leaning back, then my center of mass shifted to the back of my head and gravity pulled me downwards. To be precise, this chair saved my life"- sometimes I was grounded. Others, I got away like a true criminal mastermind.

Well, long story short, I somehow ended up (inadvertently) involved in filmmaking and cinema. So here I am: just a bald guy with an intelectual looking beard whose only goal is to reach others through my stories and share a little bit of my life.
