About me

Olá! I'm Sara and I’m from Porto (Portugal) or Invicta as we usually call it. If you never visit it before I highly recommend. It's a city full of history, authenticity, picturesque houses, amazing wine and friendly people.
Although Porto has a special place in my heart, I'm an explorer by nature. I love to travel and I lived in Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Odense and now in London.

My passion for Marketing started because of the impact it has on people lives. I’m fascinated about high-impact communications, technology, analytics, and all things digital. I love the fact that this fast-changing environment we live in, opens up new doors for creativity and allows us to have a “curious mindset” to quickly adapt to new norms.

Outside of work you will find me either exploring London, travelling, cycling or cooking something new.
