A Lisbon native, Francisco has spent most of his life in the city. This didn’t stop him from living in 5 countries on 3 continents for a total of 13 years. After 1 year of Archaeology at the BSc level he switched to History, a Bachelor’s degree with a specialization on the History of Portugal which he completed in Lisbon with a year spent studying abroad in London. He completed his Master’s thesis, on recent Portuguese politics, in the summer of 2019. Francisco’s deep knowledge of Portuguese narrative history, bridged into more recent times with his postgraduate foray into the founding of the current regime (1974-6), allows him to seamlessly cut through the layers separating first-timers from an intimate contact with his native land, its culture, and character.
