I am a PhD student in politics and social policy at Princeton University in New Jersey, although I currently live in Asheville, NC. I grew up in Massachusetts (near Boston) and lived in Vermont for five years. I speak English, Portuguese, and some Spanish, and I have traveled in the US, Europe, Brazil, and Central America.
When I'm not working, I enjoy making music, cooking tasty food, and spending time with my lovely girlfriend. I am a huge soccer fan, I love to play tennis, and I ski every winter. In terms of traveling, I am a quiet and respectful guest, but I also love talking with people and making new friends.
