What events would you like to happen with the group?

The best interactions are always with a meal so trips to Portuguese and Brazilian eateries would be terrific. Additionally, informal gatherings with special guests from Brazil - particularly artists or the media (journalists) - who can discuss the latest in Brazilian culture.

How much Portuguese do you speak?

I speak intermediate level Portuguese but would like a lot more practice to improve my skills. As a child with a part Brazilian background, I heard a lot in my aunt & uncle's household.

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

My aunt took me to Rio a number of years ago when I was quite young. We stayed there about two weeks. Unfortunately I don't remember that much as a young child except for the beaches and the huge feijoada dishes at the local restaurants.


I'm an internationalist working in NYC as a Contract Manager in the field of architecture/enginee­ring and energy. I have a passion for international affairs, films and art & culture.
