I am British, based in Rio de Janeiro, living in Brazil since 2007. I am a journalist by trade, but love to travel and I am always curious about new places, people and things - I guess it is part of my job. I think life is interesting. I like culture and music, soccer and sport, books and cinema and here in Rio I do a lot of stand-up paddle. I'm sociable but I don't make much noise, clean and believe you should treat people how you want to be treated, with good manners and respect. I also speak Portuguese and some Spanish.
