Your Host



Culver City, California, United States · Joined in May 2009

I am fun, outgoing, approachable, helpful, and friendly!
Being a Native of Los Angeles, Culver City to be more specific, I can help you with any info pertaining to this city, just ask me!

I am a graduate from CalArts, with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, however, for work I instruct Vinyasa Flows, Brazilian dance, perform Samba Shows around town, and on occasion sing Brazilian Jazz with different bands-can't escape my roots!

I also enjoy my personal projects of interior design, that include two of my listings: Home Sweet Stay, and Cozy Cottage. Home Sweet Stay is the more elaborate of the two, in which I built and designed 4 costume furniture pieces, costume pillows and curtains, rejuvenated vintage furniture, and displayed my own original paintings+photos around the walls of the house, creating a lively, anti-depressant environment!

*I also speak Fluent Portuguese and Spanish
