My name is Paulo.

I'm a father, husband, author, founder and investor.

This is where you'll be able to find out a little bit more about me and what I'm currently working on.

About me

So, you want to know more about me... You're a curious fella, aren't ya? That's okay, I am too. I think we're going to get along just fine. :)

I think the best way to describe me is to share what I'm currently up to.

RIght now, I'm living in sunny Lisbon, Portugal. I'm currently writing a book called "When Lightning Strikes". It's a deep dive into humanity's greatest discoveries and what we can learn to generate our own "aha" moments. You can check out some more details here.

I'm also an active investor in Intersection Ventures, a grower builder fund that will disrupt entire industries by using the power of collective intelligence to create massive value.

Oh, did I tell you I'm gonna be a dad? Yeah - that's huge. The firstborn of my lineage and genetic messenger shall be called Antonio.

I almost hesitate to put this, 'cause a lot of people don't get it, but I'm a huge believer of cryptocurrencies. Yes, I think they will be a massive thing someday. Yes, I'm also taking a massive loss right now. (If you are reading this and cryptos have just exploded, please send me an email to remind me to update this page and re-claim my glory.)


Go ahead. Take a look at some of the projects I am working on.
