Francisco spent his childhood in Grândola, Alentejo, where he lived until he was 18 years old. Swimming was his main activity besides school, sport where he participated in many competitions and won several medals, including regional championships. In Lisbon, he graduated in management in ISEG in 2010, and finished a masters degree in marketing in the same school in the end of 2012. Professionally, he is now working on a CRM project in ISEG, a complete revolution in the way the school comunicates internally and with the outside world. He is also marketing advisor at his family's company, Herdade das Barradas da Serra, located in Grândola, his hometown. His main passions are music, outdoors and motorsports (wich he practices in an amateur level).
