About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Being outside and farming, and becoming more community driven

ABOUT ME
I recently moved to western mass to manage a organic small fruit and blueberry farm in the hill towns of the pioneer valley. Prior to that I was living in NYC for a couple years. In the city I interned at a rooftop farm & worked at an arborculture firm while pursuing certification in urban permaculture design and Just Food's Farm School. In 2011 I graduated from VCU in Richmond, VA with a BFA in sculpture. I Grew up in a Brazilian-American household in Washington DC
