About Me


To be happy and to make other people happy


I am a Brazilian journalist, Portuguese teacher and translator living in Paris. I am open-minded, kind, responsible and I have a great sense of humour. I like meeting people from different countries and I love travelling. I like cinema, music, reading and learning languages. I am a simple guy who likes simple things.


We are on this planet to be happy and to make other people happy

I like meeting people from different countries and getting to know different cultures.
