I never really know what to say in these little blurbs so here's a list of random stuff about me:
I studied opera at uni, I'm a vegetarian, I absolutely detest olives (but love olive oil), I'm a dual-citizen of the US and Brazil, I write a music blog called Soundcheck Charlie, I really like miniature things.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love the fact that it gives you the opportunity to make connections in places that are brand new to you. Some of my best friends were made through Couchsurfing; moving to another country would've been a much lonelier endeavor without it.

An interesting little tip: blowing raspberries (aka, blowing air through closed lips) actually helps you sing better by releasing the tension in your larynx. Who knew?
