I had a camera to document both the wonder and the horror around me. My camera was stolen (go figure) so now I write and talk. My passion is Tapuio, the side of a mountain in Espírito Santo where I do almost daily battle with hunters and destroyers. In my spare time, I teach English and French and dedicate some of my time to Global Voices. Global Voices gives sound to voices otherwise unheard, forgotten. I like that.
