For many years, the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?” was my nightmare. At the beginning I tried to be honest answering with an honest shrug but it wasn’t enough to my family and I didn’t blame them, I would love to have a proper answer for it.

I only knew two important things about me at that time: I loved videogames and sketch made me feel outside the adult world for a peaceful and magical couple of minutes (and now that I became an adult – I suppose that I can call myself that – the feeling still the same about adultland)

It’s not easy deal with the pressure to define yourself to the society when you still keep doing over and over again a journey inside you.

Only in 2010, when I went to IADE in Lisbon (Portugal) to study Design, with a lot of doubt and uncertainty, and I tried different areas of Design, I finally figured out the answer for that terrible question.

“Motion Design. As simple as that, even my grandmother can’t explain what is a “motion designer” when she wants to talk about me.

Motion Graphics is a wonderful definition and answer to define me as a person and as a professional, and how my future should be, at least how I will fight to shape it.

IADE gave me the tools during 3 years but my passion was growing outside the classroom, my 24 hours and seven days a week were full with my new and forever obsession.  Motion graphics didn’t and don’t have agenda and as autodidact, every moment is a good opportunity to keep this passion alive.

I don’t want to bore you with the programs and other skills I developed (you can check about it above) because I’m a motion designer in progresswho gets inspired by the videogames of the past, amazing artists like Andrew Kramer, Nick Campbell & the full team of Greyscalegorilla, great production studios like Polynoid Buck2Veinte – Blur   fantastic animation movies as Wall-E or even for the motion graphics breaks from MTV.

Even I know the answer now, that journey inside me that I talked about never stopped, I realized that the answer for that question doesn’t’ mean anything compared with the amazing feeling of being a human and a designer in progress for the rest of my life.

2014, I finished my Post-Graduation in Digital Design in Universidade Católica do Porto (Portugal), (only) one more step to expand my abilities.

And for now, I’m just looking for a new challenge to make some real progress on me but also to share and give back that knowledge to someone, to the World, and I just can’t wait to my next upgrade.
