Beginnings in the world of multimedia

With my first computer at age 16, I started working with Adobe Photoshop, and from there traced the beginning of my experience and life decisions that led me where I am today.

Nowadays lots of young people have a computer but in those days, in Portugal, few people had, and those that had, did very few with it.

What RTP taught me

RTP is a Portuguese national broadcast company. In 2006 I interned in RTP (Portuguese Radio and Television), in the Department of Self-Promotion, after graduation. The Department of Self-Promotion is responsible for the promotion of internal RTP television events. This was my first big experience in media and promotion. Here I met good people and good people.

Paving the way in SONAE

SONAE is one of the biggest companies in Portugal. I worked as salesman selling B2B solutions for small businesses.

Consulting

Im 2008 I decided to go on my own. I found affiliate marketing and started working on my own projects. I built my first website - www.retratex.com and acquired skills that helped me be what I am today.

I followed digital marketing and social media trend when they were starting their ascension, in a time where most business owners had no idea of what to do with their website.

All businesses alike?

In 2009 I decided to use my skills by helping in what later developed into a digital agency where I help businesses connect with their customers and get productive results from their efforts.

No project is too small or too big.I won't reject your project because it's too small or too big.
