André teaches neo-shamanism and has his own active group of practitioners. Aside from his shamanic path, which he puts to use as a simple way to reach the uninitiated, he has been through the hermetic magical systems of Franz Bardon, as well as through methods presented by Rosicrucian orders and Thelemic organizations, still being an active member of the Horus Maat Lodge.

In 2010 he formed a therapy program through creative writing and shamanistic performance. This started his career as a performer, using poems unique to the performances and often inviting other artists, from performers to dancers and musicians. In parallel, he began working with music, working on a variety of projects, solo and collective, and created his first play Língua de Fogo, (Tongue of Fire), featuring the dancer Soraya Moon. In 2017 he released A Summer In Our Mouths, a semi-auto-biographical fiction where the life of the character is seen from the lens of the Sun.
In 2018 he founded his own Theater Company of CIA. Mefisteatro, with Eunice Correia – debuts with the kabbalistic play Twilight Circus. As a playwright, he wrote the following plays and music for Rumpelstiltskin, Three Strange Stories, Iomik and the Book-Tree, Dr. Jeronimo, and the ritual play, Sapho’s Bone.
In addition to his Neoplatonic approach to poetry, fiction, music, and theatre, he has been a member of various magical orders. He has written nonfiction articles for their archives, finally being published by Sirius Limited Esoterica with The Way of Abrahadabra, where he intended to strip the formula from the folk rituals of Thelema and its most religious and popular aspects, presenting it and elaborating it instead through hermetic methods. There, he published The Path of Ipsos (vol I & II) as the follow-up to The Way of Abrahadabra regarding PanAeonic Magick.
