About Me

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 university, I'm a vegetarian, my favorite color seems to be a varying shade of blue, I absolutely detest olives (but love olive oil), I'm a dual-citizen of the US and Brazil, I really like miniature things.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've made a number of good friends through Couchsurfing. I love the fact that it gives you the opportunity to make connections in places that are brand new to you. Moving to a new city would have been a much lonelier endeavor without it.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Teach, Learn, Share

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