After completing his studies, he entered an internship in a company from the Republic of Ireland, returning to Portugal fifteen months later with the intention of dedicating himself to multimedia art. However, nothing happens as he wished, driving him to a process of alienation that leads to his hospitalization in 2000 at Conde Ferreira Hospital in Porto, where he is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. It is the first of four hospitalizations over a period of eight years.
With cults and tastes deeply out of tune with the dominant taste, he ended up closing in on himself, starting to attend some art therapy workshops and exhibiting his works in alternative places of the city of Porto, such as Espaço T, Casa da Horta and A Cadeira de Van Gogh. Parallel to the painting activity, he dedicates himself to writing books and composing music, all involved in a non-conscious process of surrealist expression.
In 2014, due to the lack of valid job opportunities, he retires for disability and becomes a full-time painter.
In 2016, he joined the close circle of Cruzes Canhoto gallery’s artists.
