MA-eu-fotomaton 1

My name is Maria Manuela.
I was born in 1982 in Porto, Portugal.


I am an Architect that fell in love with organizing cultural projects and communication. I’m happy to use my skills, visions and passion making things happen in a social sustainable way.
I live and work in Berlin and in my heart I’m somehow always Porto.
I love working, reading and swimming.
I speak Portuguese, German, English and Spanish.

At the moment I am working as an assistant and aiming a new challenge.
