Who’s your hero (dead or alive) and where would you take them to show them a good time?
I don’t have heroes. I admire a lot of people for what they do. And someone I admire a lot is Elon Musk. I would take him to Snob bar to dinner because this is the best place to take a business meeting or a special talk with someone, due to the mystical and cosy mood.

Saúde! at a Ginjinha bar, a Portugease local liqueur The Old Vic Bar. The mystical environment.

Walking in the streets at Chiado and Baixa for hours. Drink ginja and then walk in the streets for some more hours.

What’s the thing you love doing that isn’t work, relationship or family related?
Listening to music for hours, not doing anything else. Just that.
