IntroductionFrench School of Violin Making, at Mirecourt, where I gained a technical Diploma in instrument making, specializing in violins as well as a Diploma in restoration (Diplôme des Métiers d'Art). This enabled me to receive cello lessons at the same time.
In addition, during those years of training, I also did a number of internships in various workshops throughout Europe such as Jan Strick's in Brussels, Bruno Dreux´s in Orléans and Denis Eschenbrenner's in Lyon amongst others.
Wilder and Davis' workshop in Montreal for 2 years and then worked for 5 years as an assistant to Christian Bayon in Lisbon. I have increased my knowledge and learnt new techniques in restoration, repairs and bow making, surrounded by the most beautiful instruments and bows.
On the strength of that experience, I opened my own workshop in Seville in 2006 and moved it to Lisbon in 2013.
