About your host

My parents came to this country in the late '60s from Portugal, and I’m a first-generation American. I speak and write both English and Portuguese fluently. I grew up with Portuguese food and spent three months every summer in Portugal from ages five to 23. I grew up in and still frequent the area we’ll be in. I love to show my friends my culture and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too.
