I am a freelance writer born in the Azores and based in Lisbon since 1997. Since 2014 I’ve been blogging about travel, culture, and the people I meet in between in Lisbon and the Azores (mostly) at Tripper, a blog about sustainable cultural tourism.
Above all, I love a great story.
As a very vocal opponent to overtourism in Lisbon, I was the moderator of a panel on conscious travel at the Lisbon Tourism Summit (2018), I've been interviewed on the topic for outlets like Skift (2018) and Vanity Fair (2020), and participated on a documentary for Swiss television (2020).
In 2020, I collaborated on two books:
"Travel Writing 101" (organized by James Durston) - 30 different writers and editors describe the various aspects of travel writing as a livelihood using real examples from their own experiences and careers.
"Secret City" (published by Lonely Planet) - an essential guide to getting to know the most interesting, rewarding and hip areas to stay in 50 cities around the world.
