I love traveling and I love travelers. I speak some Spanish and some Portuguese. My favorite place on the planet is Brazil. I also love Barcelona, Toronto, Costa Rica, West Africa, Jamaica and Los Angeles.
I love art books and Latin American fiction. I'm a big foodie, so I love to eat. I like a lot of different types of music: Reggae, Samba, Latin Jazz, Soul, Afrobeat, Rock.
I'm easy going and I like to laugh a lot. My friends love coming to visit me from abroad, so I decided to try Air BnB. I'm in a great location with lots to do. Very easy to get around NYC from here. My life motto is: Live, Transform, Inspire.
