Establishing M&A Creative in 1998 in Aveiro, Portugal, Luis has transformed it into a global brand, with offices strategically located in Lisbon, New York, and the prestigious Napa Valley—the epicenter of the wine industry in the USA. Along this transformative journey, Africa served as a pivotal point, where Luis lived and worked for two years, establishing a new agency and managing clients from Asia, Dubai, and South Africa. Luis's vision has shaped an agency that mirrors the diversity of today's world—a multicultural and visionary entity.

When not immersed in the creation of innovative solutions, Luis can be found exploring new wines, studying terroirs around the globe, and engaging in food and wine tastings. His personal mantra encapsulates the essence of his journey: "After a long and not always easy journey, filled with hard work, passion, focus, determination… I made it this far. I believe that anything is possible, and the best is yet to come for me and my team!"
