probably by now you’ve been introduced to the whole cross-disciplinary curation purpose of this blog of mine, so let me tell you a little about myself.
I was born in the azorean island of são miguel. the azores is a beautiful portuguese arquipelago constituted by 9 islands (you should really check it out… never forget that google is your friend!).
by the age of 18 I went on to mainland portugal to get a licenciate degree in advertising and marketing and then I proceeded to a professional creativity for advertising course. despite having had a wonderful time and having made unforgettable friendships during those 4 years in picturesque lisbon, I’ve chosen to come back to the azores, for about 1 year ago.
ever since, I’ve been working as a creative/graphic designer/copywriter/video editor/all-things-I-can-get-my-hands-on. but that’s not all! for the past year I’ve also been very dedicated to getting my master’s degree in business management – MBA, for short.
so, right now, apart from doing all of the aforementioned things, I’m also currently working on my master’s dissertation. I think it is safe to say that I’ve now also become a viral marketing/buzz marketing/content marketing researcher…
… and that is how and why this blog was born!
in the course of my research I am coming accross a fair amount of good and interesting stuff that I wish to clip and share with everyone… just because knowledge is power and, in accordance with this blog’s title, I believe it is quite smarter to make content rather than making war.
