I hold an undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies and Theology (BA), a Master Degree in Church Administration and Leadership (MA), a Doctor Degree in Ministry (D.Min.) and actually pursuing a Doctorate in Philosophy. My work includes serving as a local clergyman and a seminary professor. I'm member of the Society of Christian Philosophers, member of the Sociedade Brasileira dos Poetas Aldravianistas, member of the Movimiento Poetas Del Mundo, member of the União Brasileira de Escritores and member of the Academia de Letras e Artes Lusófonas and affiliated with the Mission Board of the National Baptist Convention. By working in several countries, it gave me of a major cross-cultural experience. My theology is reformed and as a poet, I've a melancholic style following the pattern of the ultra-romantics of the XIX Century, as a humanist I'm characterized by the idea that man gets his true essence in the knowledge of God. I live in Lisbon with my family and have published books on spirituality, theology, philosophy and anthologies.
