Born in Portugal and brought to the UK at a young age, Sandro experienced homelessness with his parents in London. Despite facing adversity and bullying at school, he developed resilience and determination. He overcame bullying by standing up to his tormentors and, at the age of 17, was introduced to the world of property by his ex-girlfriend’s father. With hard work and determination, he purchased his first property at the age of 22. However, a painful setback occurred when he and other investors were defrauded by a fraudulent private equity company. This experience led to a dark period of depression and addiction, causing him to lose his way.
In 2013, on the brink of homelessness again, Sandro founded the Trio Group of companies, which involves property maintenance, property development, and PROP TECH divisions. While his businesses started to thrive, the toxicity of the rat race weighed heavily on him. An epiphany came when his blind aunt’s heartfelt message during a Christmas gift exchange touched his family deeply.
In 2016, Sandro embarked on a transformative spiritual journey in Peru, where he worked with a renowned shaman and experienced profound insights through Ayahuasca. These experiences laid the foundation for his movement, Detox Nation, which focuses on engineering positive change, breaking toxic patterns, and promoting mental, physical, and energetic well-being.
