About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn more about people and about the world

ABOUT ME

I am culture lover. I choose a place to stay or visit for its cultural movement before its natural beauty (but I like this kind of place too).

I work with a Simphonic Orchestra in Brazil and I play guitar in a rock band here. I cant live without music.

I like to practice sports (specialy football, jogging, biking and tennis) but I don´t have much time now, because my job and my course in the University.

By night I like to go to Bars with friends and drink some beers, I dont like very much Night Clubs (but sometimes it´s fun too).

PHILOSOPHY

I live my freedom respecting the people.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I saw old style trawling in a fishing village in Floripa (south Brazil) and it was amazing, it happens only few times a year and I was there at the right time. To run a marathon was unbeliaveble too, it was a great experience of pain, self-control and strong of mind.
