Big fails. Great stories. Huge lessons.

Honest, vulnerable and cathartic conversations about times, when… well, things… just didn’t go as planned.

About me

Since a very early age… startups have always interested me.

There’s just something about having an idea… and seeing it through that I find so hopelessly irresistible.

That’s why I went to Boston University’s School of Management and was awarded a B.S.B.A. in Entrepreneurship.

That’s ALSO why…. even at full time”corporate” jobs in a design agency, a media portal  and a logistics company, startups were always there.

I’ve successfully founded and invested in startups in the past.. but 4 years ago – when I came to Portugal, I pivoted and decided to take startups from a side hustle.. to my MAIN THING.

And now i can excitedly shout:

Startups are my thing.
Startups are my obsession.
STARTUPS ARE MY LIFE.
