Nuno was born in Africa near the Indian Ocean, in 1966. His name dates back to the Independence of Portugal. He learned from a visionary grandfather. His mother, a history teacher, and father, an engineer, gave him two different world views: the divergent and the convergent. At a young age he fell in love with the paintings of Chagall, Kandinsky and Klee and later with design and architecture. He graduated in Graphics Communications in the United States, and he completed a Masters degree in Science in Sustainable Urban Development in the UK. Nuno was University Professor for over 21 years in Portugal. He also served as a political advisor in Portugal and Brazil and a contractor for the US government. He also held roles as Creative, Art and Branding as well as Account Director. Father to Madalena he is passionate about his family. The sun, the beach, the palm trees and a good dish are recurring desires. He would have loved to have had a coffee with Jobs, created colors with Klee, lunched with Ted Roosevelt, spent a day at the beach with Vinicius, applauded Agostinho da Silva and dined with Hitchens. The quote that has most influenced Nuno is by Robert Kennedy, “Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.”
