I drafted my first map made entirely by hand in 1982 to a Portuguese Air Force Championship. This was the first map made in Portugal and prepared according to the rules of the IOF (International Orienteering Federation).
I started my work as a cartographer (Mapmaker) professional in 2004 and have already made maps to National Championships, Iberian Championships, Cup Latin Countries, World Ranking Events, and also for the World Cup Veterans.
Currently I have about 212 maps produced in Portugal, Spain, France, Austria, Montenegro, Turkia and Canadá.
I made maps for Pedestrian orienteering, Mountain Bike orienteering, Traill-O orienteering and Sprint orienteering.
My first contact with the sport as a player, was when in the military in 1977.
In subsequent years, 1978 (Germany), 1979 (Denmark), 1980 (Sweden) 1981 (Austria) participated in four World Military Championships (CISM). I have lots of international participation (Over 50) and still a player of the sport (whenever I can) that I've been a great passion.
