I have many passions but career wise most of my path has been in the art world. I love the business side of the arts and I like it internationally. I worked for an arts magazine in Paris, had a gallery in Mayfair (London) and now am the founding partner of an art consultancy business in Sao Paulo. I also travel regularly to fairs and biennials around the world.
As a host, Airbnb allows me welcome people from all over the world which keeps me connected to different beautiful realities. I make new friends, have company, make work contacts, hear different opinions, and get the opportunity to show aspects of Sao Paulo to visitors who would perhaps not discover it otherwise.
As a guest, Airbnb is an opportunity to connect to locals and learn how to get around faster, feel part of the culture, experience different types of comfort, hospitality, architecture and interior design, and of course get a better deal than I would in a hotel.
I speak English, French and Portuguese and enjoy this site a lot. Hopefully my reviews, references, photos and videos will give you a good impression of who I am.
