A trip to Moab National Park in Utah

Some facts about me:

I am a native Brazilian. I enjoy most things Brazilian such as Carnaval, churrasco, samba, Bossa Nova, and futebol.

In my "previous life" I was a basketball player:

  • I was a member of teams that placed 3rd in the U-17 and U-19 Brazilian tournaments and 2nd in the U-21 Brazilian tournament.
  • I hold record for career block shots at Baker University (2000-2004). I was also an Assistant Coach at Baker during the 2009-2010 season.
  • I Officially "retired" in 2011 in Brazil (with a relapse in 2013 also in Brazil). Team placed 2nd in Brazilian Center West Regional Championship (both in 2011 and 2013).

I am directly involved with the work of the Two Brothers Foundation a non-governmental organization whose mission is to promote education, community service and international exchange in low-income neighborhoods in Brazil.
