French by birth before adopting his parents' Portuguese nationality, he grew up playing golf at Saint-Nom-La-Bretèche, where his father worked. Represented France at every level, and during the winter of 2000 he teamed up with coach Benoit Willemart, a partnership which resulted in him becoming the top-ranked French amateur at the end of 2001. Won twice on the Challenge Tour in 2004, including the dual-ranking St Omer Open, which earned him a European Tour exemption. Has finished runner-up on the European Tour twice since, re-qualified for the European Tour in second place twice – in 2009 and 2013.
