Born and raised in Lisbon the Indo-Portuguese director, writer and editor studied Philosophy in Lisbon and later in Paris. He then moved to Mumbai, India where he stayed before moving to Berlin where he is currently residing. He works as a freelance filmmaker in various departments and studies at the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf. Along with his fellow Producer Urs Kind he formed the Almeida/Kind Gbr Production for his web series Das Apartment in which many CSZ players have starred and/ or appeared. In his “spare” time he performs improvised theatre with CSZ Berlin because it is great. There I said it: improv rules, and you need to break them once in a while.
