About Me

I am a friendly person. I love to travel, to make new friends, to know other cultures. I've lived in three other cities in Brazil and now I am in São Paulo.

I work during the week, nevertheless on weekends I like to go out for a beer and a good talk. I'm a big fan of clubs and loud music. But I like to dance, especially forró (a brazilian ballroom dancing). I also like to enjoy nature, camping, hiking, going to the beach, etc.

Please, feel free to read my references and send me a message also!

PHILOSOPHY:

"A man needs to travel. By his own means, not by stories, images, books or TV. By his own, with his eyes and feet, to understand what he is. To some day plant his own trees and give them some value. To know the cold to enjoy the heat. To feel the distance and lack of shelter to be well under his own ceiling. A man needs to travel to places he doesn't know to break this arrogance that makes us see the world as we imagine it, and not simply as it is or may be. That makes us teachers and doctors of what we have never seen, when we should just be learners, and simply go see it."
- Amyr Klink

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My entire life is a amazing thing. And now I'm living in Rio de Janeiro. This really is the Marvelous City. I'm enjoying every day, having fun, meeting new people, making great friends, working, studying, traveling... all the things I need and what I want.

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe I have much more to learn than to teach, but the little I know I can share my life experience, teach a little about Brazilian dances such as forró and samba. I can also help with the portuguese language and show how to make a great caipirinha :)

I want to improve my english and learn other languages, also hear about things of other culture like music, drinks, foods, philosophy, religious... everything!
Knowledge is always welcome!
