Creative Writer & Voice Actress
November 2021: What I’m working on
Writing a memoir to be published in March 2022.Creating and writing an interactive story and book for Make-A-Wish Portugal.Developing a new storytelling concept for kids.
I was born in Portugal, a small and beautiful country in Europe.
I spent my childhood by the canals in the Netherlands, the skyscrapers in São Paulo and the beaches in Cascais.
My love for Theatre took me to New York City, where I intended to pursue a career in Theatre. But there I discovered I was more interested in filmmaking and writing. After a few years in the USA, I decided to move back to Europe. This time I chose Brussels, where I worked at Violeta Lab, producing films and organizing creative workshops. I co-founded the Little Film Academy, offering film workshops to children.
Missing the ocean breeze and the warmth of the sun, I moved back to Portugal. When I was pregnant with my first son I started Lêleh Land, a children’s publishing house. Apart from working as a writer, I also work as a voice actress.
I work from my home studio overlooking a beautiful garden, which is seven minutes from the beach.
Certified in Writing for Film, TV and New Media, I have worked in film as a screenwriter and producer.
In Brussels, I collaborated with the English language magazine The Bulletin, writing the series “Global Couples”.
