About me

The No Footprint Nomad

My story in 3 acts

First life – Career path

Industrial Engineer Master taken in Portugal and Sweden, specialised in Logistics and Operations and worked as a consultant and sourcing manager for Textile and Health Industries. Career growth was fast and so was the investment in a house mortgage and expensive sports car.

Second life – Travel the World

Decided not to postpone the dream of traveling the world before it “was too late” so left everything behind and together with Sara started a world travel.  It was supposed to be just 1,5 years  but we soon realised we did not want to come back to the first life and found a way to perpetual travel with remote work and digital nomadism, which we now share on No Footprint Nomads.

Third life – Back to business but with a purpose

After living in 6 countries and travelling with no special goal, decided it was time to give back. First, together with 3 more guys  started an impact startup ( “groupon” business model for green businesses) that has closed down after 2 years. Then in 2017 launched an online travel lifestyle brand (No Footprint Nomads) and specialised in SEO and content marketing. Today I partner with SEO specialists to help the Eco-accommodation industry to thrive.

Third life is my current life, and my mission is to make travel sustainable one hotel at a time while helping everyone to live sustainably in a perpetual travel.

My Zero Waste Travel Brand

Play Video

In 2017 I launched a low footprint travel lifestyle brand to inspire others to be sustainable while on the road. 

I share resources to help travellers have a lower impact, and choosing eco lodging is on of the most important ones, together with carbon credits for flying. 

The thousands of visitors a month the website already has is a living proof the world is more aware of the tourist impact.
