Coming from the carpentry, I started to get interested in bowed instruments in 2006. After working in repairing instruments for about two years I started to build new instruments, what got to be the main part of my work. In order to learn more about instruments, I started to study bowed instrument making in Markneukirchen in Germany in 2014 . It is very interesting with a lot of practice lessons. Since then I also dedicate myself in baroque and historical instruments.
My workshop in Portugal is situated on a calm place outside the village, suitable to try the instruments without noise or pressure of time. Starting from august 2017, I will be there the most part of the time.
