About Me


Having the guts to update my profile and add the pending friends thingy...


It all began on a winter night in June of 1979, in São Paulo, where I stayed for the next 28 years.

A marketing company pays my salary, would it pay a little more I'd certainly be more hosted than host people in that cubicle I call home.

Trying is my favorite hobby. The good thing is that there are enough things out there to try.

I like events, a bit too much. I like to organize stuff: parties, girl's pedicure afternoon, movie nights. I like to read but usually too hyperactive to sit still. I like reading in the bathroom though.

I like music, I love music. I like dancing, but please dont ask me if I know "how to samba"... eca...

I'm absolutely and completely dependent on my friends, from the old ones to that one I met 2 minutes ago, and those relationships is what I most protect in life.


To experiment.
