Hello, I am an American married to a Brazilian living mainly here in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. My husband, Andre, and I have an amazing 5 year old daughter who is our everything.
I first came to Rio in 2003 for work in the Fashion industry. It just so happened my now husband was my then agent. He showed me the local style of Rio and I instantly feel in love. Well, at first with the City and the country and later him. : )
I currently have a business teaching english conversation to kids while doing all kinds of American crafts, games, theater, and cooking. I am also starting a professional organizing service as well. My husband(Andre) has his own company for 18 years Importing and Exporting here in Rio.
Andre, is a huge water guy, he surfs stand-up, Kite and short board. He is a triathlete. Needless to say we spend most of our time outside, at the beach or around the beach life style. I on the other hand, love Yoga, meditation, cooking, gardening, a good book, dance, good wine, fashion, interior design and most of all travel!
We are fortunate to be a family that travels internationally many times each year. My daughter is already bilingual and working on her third language, (mandrin). We spend most of our time here in Rio but also travel to the US, mainly St. Louis Missouri(where my family lives) and in Los Angeles (where I lived for 20 years). We also travel to Asia regularly and plan to live there for 3 months this year.
In one of my many past careers I was a professional Dancer and had the good fortune of working for a famous band. I traveled all over the world for 5 years. It was a special time and an honer and a pleasure to have the experience of knowing so many incredible placed and people. It would be very hard to pick one but I must say the Magical Island of Bali is my all time favorite. I am already planning our family trip around the world when my daughter turns 10.
We hope to see you here in Rio Soon
Peace and Blessings,
Sherri, Andre and Bella
