Brazilian, born in Curitiba, graduated in Social Communication (Advertising), I live in Brasilia and love to stare at the sky in this town. I like to learn about global issues and get to know some great ideas. I feed on music and books during the day, theatre and movies at night. I dream of a home sweet home with wi-fi, a dog and a pool. For the moment, I research this turbulent world while pursuing my place in it.
