I´m involved with basketball since 1969, first as player, than as a coach and since 1992 as a scouter/agent.

Be part of a team or lead a team it’s a great asset to anybody. In consequence of team work I won three National Championships, two as a player and one as head coach. I also help many basketball GM´s and coaches to do a winning team.  

Always thinking ahead of time, become the first Portuguese basketball agent to become professional and to be accredited by FIBA, where during that time I negotiated hundreds of contracts, included players with NBA back ground, players that play on NBA Summer League and DLeague, over 20 players that were invited to participate at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament (PIT) and players that nobody knew it but I predicted their success. My goal as a scouter/agent was to find the right team for the right player and I’m proud of my successful career.

I helped to revive the association of coaches by promoting dialogue between various coaches.

In 2007 I met with all the teams in Galicia, Spain to check their availability to participate in a first competition with Portuguese teams but unfortunately the Portuguese Federation did not follow up as he was the wish of the best Portuguese teams.

Since the 80´s that I understood that sports are part of the entertainment and sports industry and because of that I develop my own concepts and study the Portuguese basketball, writing articles on my blog (http://apbasketball.blogspot.pt/) about the problems and solutions of the Portuguese basketball.

In consequence of that in 2014 several people wanted me to run for president of the Portuguese Basketball Federation due to the ideas I defend for Portuguese basketball.

I´m looking to work in sports management, sports marketing and cause related marketing activities in professional sports organization.
