Michael Almeida, native of South Africa from the city of Johannesburg lives in Portugal since he was 8 years old, having a degree in Psychology, but very early dedicated to various hobbies based on artistic, plastic and expressive creation. Underwent artistic training in gymnastics acrobatics, art therapy, graphic design and more recently by the aerial acrobatics of contemporary circus, as a practitioner and teacher of children, teenagers and adults.

Being self-taught by nature, his continuous learning is done by experimenting with new ideas and new techniques. He is currently a teacher in the prestigious school of cake design ISTOFAZ-SE! in Portugal .
