Setting my own path…

After a summer in Bahia a new search came to life; simplicity. Now practicing less is more, based in Floripa. Making myself mobile I have flown through the curiosity river. Exploring many areas, bringing my language knowledge and communications skills into various collaborations aka jobs. Click to request full portfolio

Educator & explorer

Being bilingual has always been a key asset to my life, I decided to explore time in teaching, and fell in love with the experience

In the initial search I became an assistant professor at a bilingual school in São Paulo. It was a powerful experience, opening up questions of my life values, leading to major changes; found in travelling.

2008 - 2013

Corporate Career in Tourism

For a while, it was fulfilling,  an impetuous climb, working for internacional company’s. I learned a lot about structure, but still wished for more flow.
