canada! starting from calgary, alberta!
They say that I`m a fellow with a good energy, who likes to have fun and look the positive side of everything.
I was born in Amsterdam in 1988, but came to Rio de Janeiro when I was 1 year old, and lived here until now.
My dad's family is from Japan, my mother's from Brazil.
I like mixing, mixture, putting things together, just like myself - a strange combination person.
Poetry, music and cinema blowed my mind when I was younger. And I'm still young. Still think that only poetry can change the world.
I really like to meet other people, from other cultures and places. Curiosity to share ideas, music, ways of looking trough life...
I've been doing improv theatre, clown volunteer visits and stuff like that for some years here in Rio, and it's a hobbie I want to carry as long as I can. Work with children, and older people, people with carry needs, its a great and warmfull experience.
The improv theatre trained me to be an open person, who accept ideas, say YES! to adventures and really wanna have fun!
Patch Adams philosophy - if you have food and friends... it's a good beginning! we're all born naked, without hair, without money, ... wherever it comes , it's profit!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've already been with Milton Nascimento in his house here in Rio, it was an honor for me! The vision from the top of Pedra da Gávea mountain (in Rio de Janeiro), simply awesome! The feeling of riding a bike in my hometown, where I was born, Amsterdam. Rowing in the waters of Baía da Guanabara (in Rio de Janeiro) on a beautiful sunny day, just like when all the city was just tropical forest, back 500 years ago...
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach some Brazilian music on the guitar, like Milton Nascimento, Djavan, Caetano Veloso, Tom Jobim, samba and others. I can also teach how to dance some samba, salsa, zouk and bolero (did about 2 years of dancing). I'm really interested in other cultures language, food and specially music.
