Since 2001 he dedicates his life to trucks mechanics, which gives him professional satisfaction.
He played football for Clube de Futebol do Carregado, but now he dedicates his leisure time to his dog “Pit”, training it.
The first time he took part in a motor competition was as assistance mechanic in Oleoban/MAN Portugal team for the 2007 Guy Hoquet rally in Morocco. He repeats the experience at the 2008 AMV Shamrock rally, also in Morocco. His mechanical knowledge and his interest in the races tie him definitely to the team, and he is now responsible for the maintenance of the racing truck during the competitions.
