Paulo in a few Tweets

  • Others say about me that ”the rest is over”.
  • My biggest challenge is doing something that has never been done before.
  • The one thing I cannot do without is my mobile phone.
  • An awards-winning project must be unique.
  • My advice to the nominees: nothing is impossible.
