About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.”

Born in Brazil, left very young. Have lived in Aberdeen, MA, Seattle, WA and many years in Boston,MA, and currently in Honolulu, HI.

Worked for 2 years for Royal Caribbean & lived onboard 2 of their ships; the Grandeur of the Seas and the Brilliance of the Seas. It was an amazing experiece. I worked in the Shore Excursions Department, and I LOVED my job! There were approx. 70 different crew nationalities, I got to travel a lot and was paid to go on tours! Great life!

I enjoy making new friends and even before joining CS I have hosted a lot of my friends and friends of my friends in my house. I love hosting people, having people over for dinner, hearing about people's life experience.

I graduated in Tourism and I am really into learning new cultures, languages and travel. Who isn't anyhow?

I am definatly deep involved with many aspects of travel. I worked as a Travel Agent, in Boston for almost 2 years, had a great experience working onboard the ships for Royal Caribbean. And I just start my MBA in Hospitality. I'm very passionate about this field!

PHILOSOPHY

"Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living."
