Bio: 
I was born in São Paulo, Brazil. When I was a child my mom took my sister and I to Rio de Janeiro, where we lived for a while. Back in São Paulo I started to work part time handing out flyers at 13. For over a decade I kept the same routine (work and school) and I worked as office-boy, welder assistant, welder, postman and truck driver (these two latter I was working for ECT, a state company which provides the postal service for the country. In 2010, after finishing college I decided to go to Ireland to improve my English. I lived there for nearly 4 years, where I worked as a floor staff, pizza chef and bartender. Later I moved to Naples, in Italy. And then to Reggio Calabria. I returned to Brazil for the World Cup in 2014 and worked as interpreter in a night club before starting teaching English for teenagers in a regular school and for businessmen in some multinational companies like Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen and ThyssenKurpp. I always loved travelling and I have visited over 40 countries across 4 continents. I like cooking although I am not very good at, and I love cycling, reading and meeting new people. I have a daughter and we hit it off. We hang around every week and we talk to each other a lot even living in different houses. I also like to have some craic with my family and friends. I never miss the chance to have a coffee or a dram with friends. To wrap up I am trying to fit everything that i have into a backpack and have just my email as my full address.
