I am a sucker for food and wine festivals and have a very pronounced sweet tooth. I also really enjoy foreign movies and frequent all the international film festivals and foreign movie theatres. I have been following the art walks in Miami since I was a teenager and I love finding new music and attending live shows.
Since I was a child I loved to travel and I try to make it somewhere new every year. However I have yet to find a place or country that I can definitively say is my favorite, as everywhere I have been has given me a completely unique reason to love it, which is the appeal for me to begin with. My most recent trips where to India and Brazil, which were both life changing in very different ways. You can feel the age and layered history everywhere you go in India, but what I will always take with me about India is how everything has meaning and purpose, from each marking on the wall to daily routines, nothing is a coincidence. As for Brazil I was fortunate enough to go for Carnival and visited both Rio and Sao Paulo. From the moment I got on the plane till the moment I left I was surrounded by the most inviting lively people, and everyone seemingly had a diverse background. I adore Brazil and would love to return for the World Cup.
I'm a Miami local with an affinity for traveling and experiencing different cultures. I am always looking for new things to see and do here in my hometown and look forward to the next meet up.
