Artur Pegas
09ºWest Founder

He was born in Vendas Novas in 1970. He got his degree in Agricultural Engineering in the University of Évora. He also attended a M.A. in Statistics and Information Management in ISEGI, at the Economics Faculty of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa.
He practises swimming and running and he loves trekking, adventure trips and travel photography. Alongside Luísa Tomé, he has walked through half the world. Patagonia fascinated him with its beauty; New Zealand, where he walked from the north of the Island of the North to the south of the Island of the South, showed him a sketch of heaven; in Nepal, he embraced spirituality and peace much deeper and was delighted with its grace; Mongolia, just as Patagonia, crashed him with its wilderness and forever altered his sense of space; in Equator and Yemen he fell in love with the people and the landscapes, and in Peru with the archaeological richness.
He lives by the motto of the famous American cyclist «Live Strong».
The best trip of his life will always be the next one.
He works full time at the agency, where he is responsible for the website and contacts with clients and suppliers.
He can’t resist a cheese pie!
