I'm Brazilian born, American raised, and now back in Brazil, working in digital marketing (mainly SEO), and soon to launch a São Paulo online travel guide for English speakers via My Destination! Pretty much, I can drink a bud light while doing the samba and updating my (website hidden) profile at a fun party in SP all at the same time :-)
I have a passion for food, travel, dance & meeting new people. Besides living in the US, I have travelled in Europe, South America (including many Brazilian states), and my next stop is southeast Asia in late 2012.
My former roommate Cinthia who has moved to Ireland and my now roommate Kelli and I have hosted people through Airbnb, friends of friends, and other random characters we've met along the way. Kelli and I are very friendly, helpful, and outgoing. I speak English, and she speaks Spanish, making us pretty handy language-wise while in SP. We like to host people who will be up for hanging out with us, and love taking them to, what one of our airbnb guests called his "firsts" in São Paulo (first cookout, samba school rehearsal, beach outing, etc.).
I have also used Airbnb to travel, and have loved every minute of it!
