José’s connection with the outdoors and off-road driving began early in his childhood. Over of the years, his passion for nature and driving became increasingly bigger. Having started as a simple enthusiast he became a member of clubs both in Portugal and the UK, and a few years ago he became the correspondent of “Land Rover Owner International” magazine in Portugal.

Over the years José acquired specialized training and skills, as an advanced driver in Portugal and Spain and as an instructor with Land Rover Experience in the UK. He holds a First Aid certificate awarded by St. John’s Ambulance in England.

José has travelled in many parts of the world, doing the things he likes most: travelling, enjoying the wonders of nature and contacting new people. Being so lucky to live in a wonderful country such as Portugal, he is continually looking for new tracks and magical places to discover the best and most authentic things the country has to offer.
