João loves any chance to write in the 3rd person, like most bios out there. He’s an internationally awarded creative - D&AD, Webbys, Lovies, Piaf, FWAs, Awwwards, Digital Best, The Drum, European Digital Awards, but no Cannes Lion! - with a fascination for human behavior.
For the past several years he’s been changing the fate of global brands like Fiat, Samsung, Philips, Adidas and Converse at various creative agencies in Lisbon, Hamburg, Prague and (now) Amsterdam.
Considered by the Dutch press as one of the top 10 ad creatives to watch out in the Netherlands recently, João is passionate about creating stories that leave a lasting impression.
He is now steering creativity & strategy at one of Europe’s fastest growing digital agencies: Dept Amsterdam.
In his spare time he devours documentaries on a daily basis, spins records at a very amateur level and cannot resist a good RPG.
