Hello there! What can I tell you about me? I was born in Rio in the beginning of the eighties and have lived here my whole life. Not on the same spot, though. As matter of fact, I've lived in 15 different address in Rio. (And no, my parents do not own a moving company if you're wondering about it). On the bright side, this has led me to a lot of interesting corners of Rio. I've studied journalism and business administration and also I like to travel. A lot. I even blog about it here –

So far I've been in more than 30 countries, but I always return back home safe and sound to watch the sunset in Ipanema again. I run a corporate events company alongside my beloved wife Claudia. I'm not kidding, we really have the same name. But at least we laugh about it. Probably, she'll join us in our local adventure. Almost guaranteed. And if you're beer fan like myself, there's a great chance that we'll wrap up the day in my preferred bar.

My passions are:

  • Cycling
  • Reading
  • Travelling

In my city I have great tips for:

  • Budget eats
  • Cafés & coffee shops
  • Restaurants & food
  • Bars & nightlife
  • Parks & nature
  • Art & architecture
  • Galleries & museums
  • Historical sights
  • Culture hubs

I have travelled to: All over 5 continents and over 30 countries.

I love my city because: Despite the fact that I lived here my whole life, I co-create two, sort of, brotherhoods that also keep me up to date with the news in Rio. One is focused on fancy dining and the other one on exploring new corners of Rio. Sundays are the best days to go on a bike ride.
