Tino was born in the 3rd of July of 1976 in Cascais. Since very early he showed interest for music, specially for the drums and percussion, having had the very important influence of his Father who played the drums as an hobbie. At the age of 16, bought his first drum set, kept it in the garage, and spent hours playing along with records and cassettes. That was how a group of friends heard him and invited him for what it would become his first band, "Mess". By then, he felt the need to learn more, in order to be able to answer to the everyday challenges of music.
So, with his eyes on the goal ... , enrolled himself in the School of Music and Arts of Alcoitão. Months later, decided to follow his teacher's advice to pursue his music studies at another school. Consequently, he entered the music school "Paco" in Cascais, where he studied with Professor Jorge Li.

“I am most grateful to those who always believed in me and to those who did not :). To my dear Parents who heard the racket all this years and helped me buy the drum sets that I had and have! To my sisters for having allways supported me and a very special "thank you" to my dear sister Sandra for helping me out when I most needed. To my neighbors who have also suffered with the racket whether studying or rehearsing. To all my friends for not being able to spend more time with them (however knowing that it's just as if we have been together every single day). Last, but not least, thanks to Pablo Enriques, Bruno Pedroso, Alexander Frazão, Carlos Vieira, Aldo Caviglia, Carlos Alberto Girão, Vasco Agustinho, Pedro Madaleno, Yuri Daniel, João Bosco de Oliveira, Andre Sousa Machado, Eng. Bernardo Moreira, please forgive me if I fail to remember somebody… as well as to all my influences as Dave Weckl, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Smith, Thomas Lang, Tito Puente, Horácio "El Negro" Hernandes, António Sanches, Peter Erskine, Omar Hakim, Alex Acuña, Manu Katché, Art Blakey, Max Roach, Vicky, Jose Salgueiro, Dennis Chambers, Airto Moreira, Tony Williams, Carter Beauford, Poncho Sanches, Sting, Prince, Dave Mathews, Rui Veloso, Pat Metheny, Vinnie Paul and many, many others that had and still have a great deal of importance in my career. To all, my sincere gratefulness. Without you it would have not been possible to materialize my greatest dream, to become a professional musician...
