Introduction:

I was born and educated in Lisbon but have lived in London for many years. I have a masters degree in classics and a certificate in Classical Greek from Cambridge University. I am an amateur painter and sculptor. I worked for several years in Student Services for the Open University. Enjoying life and interacting with people of all ages, and making them happy is what I like to do best and so being a tour guide is my perfect job.
I have travelled widely in Europe and Asia for pleasure and for academic purposes, particularly in Italy, Greece (including attending and presenting papers n Ancient Greek Theatre at Epidaurus) and UK. My artistic, academic and working life has taught me to look at life all around with extra enthusiasm and pleasure. I love to share my passion of all things beautiful with others and London, as a culturally vibrant city with a rich past and present is the best place to work in.
