Married to the best person that has ever happened to me. That’s Patrícia. She makes my life a lot better and I do whatever I can to deserve her, everyday. With little success, I must confess.
We have a daughter, called Emma, which is the main reason behind the topic “NO SO SECRET ME” on this blog.
I’m passionate about life, people in general, jazz, good wine, psychology and, above all, smiles.
I’m one of those who touches others and that likes hugs 😄
I love to communicate (read: talk too much) and I always find great conversation topics even when no one else is interested anymore.
In the family, we are lucky to have a black labrador, Zorah, that happens to be the best dog we could have wished for.
We also have many dreams: to adopt a child, to visit the +/- 200 countries in the world, contribute to the happiness of those around us, to appreciate the simple things in life, to volunteer more e, most of all, to feel like we left something good in the world.
I started working as a part-time sales assistant, while I tried my first college degree in engineering. Something that, like many other things, didn’t end well.
Meanwhile, I went back to college to get a degree in this domain. That went quite well, actually.
MARKETING DIRECTOR IN FRANCE
FACILITATOR & COACH
This last experience accompanying people and teams achieving their objectives made me feel something I don’t think I had experienced in all of my working years. To feel that this is what I’m supposed to do. This is why I was here for.
I’m not quite sure I do one explains this… Once I was asked: “If you had to work for the rest of your life for free and the only thing you could choose was the job you’d do, what would it be ?”
I remember answering something like: “I have to think about it. I don’t have an answer right away…”
The person who asked me that, like if he had guessed the answer already – or perhaps he had already asked someone else before me – smiled and asked: “Would it be the job you do today?”. My answer was a lot faster!
