I was born and raised in S. Miguel, Azores, but my story is made up of many places: my paternal family is from Lisbon and the maternal family from Brittany in France, so the sea surrounding the island where I grew up was an inspiration space to make my way.
I went to Lisbon to study when I was seventeen, I graduated in Economics, and lived in the city full of light.
After a seventeen year career in the financial system, I decided to commit to my passion and majored in what I had always been my hobby: filming and video editing.
That was when I discovered what “working for pleasure” really means, and that's how I started my new professional endeavour, which aims to perpetuate smiles.
That’s the story behind Smile Stories.
