About Me


Learn. Live. Grow.


My passport will say Brazilian, my soul will shout the world.
I'm passionate about new cultures and learnings, and I like to get myself out of the comfort zone.
I've been volunteering in 3 different countries, working with people from more than 10 nationalities.

I learned that storytelling is about connecting dots.
You choose the facts of your life and start drawing the lines - here and ther - till have your final draw.

It's up to you which ones will be dots you want to connect, the experiences you want to spread into the world. What you want to give back.

I've been in amazing places, working with unique people, having enriching experiences.
I also faced dangerous situations and great disappointments.
But is the end, is the final draw that counts, and I'm pretty sure I already have a good collection to expose :)

Right or wrong, nobody knows where this road will take.
But if I tell you more about the pleasure of the ride,
It worth trying, till the end.


1. No drama.
2. Take the ownership of your choices.
3. Make all experiences remarkable.
4. There's always something new to learn.
