I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 1973. At the age of 13 I moved to the northeast, a state called Rio Grande do Norte. A small city, founded during World War II, when USA built a military base in that location. So, I moved from a big, busy and dangerous city, into a small town, beach area, very calm, and HOT. Sun shines 300 days a year.
At 14 I received Jesus Christ into my life. I started to work in regional missions, small country cities, in special with communities in need. I become the youth leader and learned a lot during that period. From a shy boy raised inside an apartment, I was exploring and increasing the number of friends and contacts in general. Learning how to express myself clearly.
When I finished High School in Brazil, I was 18 years old, and made a decision quite different from the majority. Instead of going to college, I decided to study High School again, but in The United States. I studied English everyday of the week, with a priest and teacher, Samuel, to whom I am very thankful. And by the age of 19 I was in Newark, NJ, at East Side High School. Finishing High School again, I went back to Brazil. That was very important to my life, and it was the right decision.
I like nature at first. Camping, hiking, riding horses, diving, animals in general. I used to read a lot … not books gave space to internet. But I still read a lot .. online. Since I was 13 photography is part of my life. I just love it. I’m not the sports kind of person, but I enjoy swimming, playing volleyball and playing chess.
As pets, I was always attracted by exotic animals. Snakes are my favorite.
I believe it’s very important to be involved in the community. To participate and do something to improve the quality of life of our neighborhood. I’ve always been involved with social works, specially with poverty. I’m always developing projects to help people around.
“I haveFacebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Flickr, Google Plus, Linked In, etc .
When I die, I want it to be written on my tombstone:
