I'm a TV editor who studied movies in the university in Rio and Paris.
I love travelling, music, comedy and food.
About music I enjoy a lot to discover new rhythms and artists, specially local music from where I'm travelling. I also try to play the trombone. In rio I play in a rocky brass band which is called "Metais Pesados" (means "Heavy Metal").
Comedy is something that I find interesting in life. I'm always trying to laugh about everything and most of my job in TV is to edit comedy shows. The kind of comedy that a love most is standup and nonsense humour.
About food, I'm always trying to taste new flavours. If I can eat something that I already know or something exotic, I'll alway choose the unknown.
Travelling for me is about a journey. The poem "Ithaka" by Cafafy defines a lot my traveller's spirit:
As you set out for Ithaka
hope the voyage is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.
Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
angry Poseidon—don’t be afraid of them:
you’ll never find things like that on your way
as long as you keep your thoughts raised high,
as long as a rare excitement
stirs your spirit and your body.
Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
wild Poseidon—you won’t encounter them
unless you bring them along inside your soul,
unless your soul sets them up in front of you.
Hope the voyage is a long one.
May there be many a summer morning when,
with what pleasure, what joy,
you come into harbors seen for the first time;
may you stop at Phoenician trading stations
to buy fine things,
mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony,
sensual perfume of every kind—
as many sensual perfumes as you can;
and may you visit many Egyptian cities
to gather stores of knowledge from their scholars.
Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
Arriving there is what you are destined for.
But do not hurry the journey at all.
Better if it lasts for years,
so you are old by the time you reach the island,
wealthy with all you have gained on the way,
not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.
Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey.
Without her you would not have set out.
She has nothing left to give you now.
And if you find her poor, Ithaka won’t have fooled you.
Wise as you will have become, so full of experience,
you will have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.
