I born in Timor Leste and lived several years in Portugal and in Australia where I studied, Business Administration, Human resource management and a Criminology Postgraduate. In 2000 I returned to Timor Leste where I worked for the United Nations mission and in 2006 build my hotel Arbiru Beach Resort. I have a particular and strong interest in helping develop the Tourism to Timor Leste, improve the infrastructures and services to visitors with better travel fares, better information of our country potential, better human resources, and a culture of hospitality. In fact i am the President of the Tourism association A.E.T.T.L. in Timor Leste.
In a quite small fishing community, near the beach with open spaces for jogging and swimming with excellent restaurants at my hotel Arbiru and nearby Ocean View restaurant.
