Grew up in Macau as a member of the micro-generation we now know as xennials.

A degree in Filmmaking, another in Psychology leading to a Masters in Clinical Psychology, the dissertation of which, however, in Psychology of Art: The Psychologization of the Cinematic Narrative.

Did standup comedy in English in Hong Kong, with an accent worse than Žižek.

As an idea to get Southern Europe out of the economic crisis, founded the Portuguese startup Ao Dispor, where anyone can hire their neighbours.

Currently pursuing a PhD in studio art, also known as practice as research. In this endeavour I'm writing a science fiction screenplay.

I'm also connecting the Community of Filmmakers and Actors in Porto, hosting meetups and promoting Porto as a city of independent filmmaking.

To pronounce my last name, make the "nh" a nasal "n". If you speak Spanish, this sounds like Piño. If you know the IPA, it'sˈpiɲu. Yes, Pinho. You're pronouncing it perfectly.
