Filmmaker, audience strategist, and writer, with an M.A. in Media arts. Identity, belonging, and displacement, are topics of interest. I am also a member of the Queer feminist communities in Lisbon, Berlin, and Copenhagen - with a recent project (2021-22) resulting in a full-length documentary dealing with gentrification and LGBTQIA+ rights in Lisbon. Other work includes creative strategy and curation for Canal180, the only Portuguese tv-channel dedicated to experimental art and culture. Currently I have been working in the industry team of CPH:DOX with emerging filmmakers and pitch projects, exposing me to the trends and challenges of relating to audiences in today’s media landscape.
