What events would you like to happen with the group?

Happy Hours, restaurant visits, Brazilian-related events and exhibits

How much Portuguese do you speak?

I can at least fake it pretty well. Brazilians have told me I sound like a Brazilian with a strangely limited vocabulary.

Have you ever been to Brazil? If so, what is your favorite place or thing to do?

My favorite memories are getting lost and then finding my way in Ouro Preto at night, and the feeling of walking from the busy streets of Leblon/Gavea to the vast open space of Lagoa.


I studied Portuguese at SUNY Albany just for fun. About half of the music I listen to is Brazilian. My favorite is probably Jorge Ben but I also love Caetano, O Terco, and Novos Baianos, among others.
