What is your exposure to Portuguese Language?

Eu peguei tres cursos de portugues para pessoas que ja falavam espanhol enquanto que eu fazia o meu MBA internacional na Thunderbird School of Global Management em Glendale, Arizona. I took 3 semesters of Portuguese for Spanish speakers while I was doing my international MBA at the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, Arizona.

Have you ever been to a Portuguese-speaking country? Where and when?

Sim. Ja fiz muitas viagens ao Brasil desde o 1993 para agora: Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Curitiba, Recife, Porto Alegre, Caxias do Sul e Ribeirao Preito. Yes. I've made many trips to Brazil between 1993 and now: Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Curitiba, Recife, Porto Alegre, Caxias do Sul and Ribeirao Preito.

What's your skill level in conversational Portuguese?

Eu tenho um nivel avancado, mas sempre que tenho a oportunidade de treina-lo mais, eu a aproveito. Eu falo para a minha esposa e filhos em portugues e me respondem em espanhol. I'm at an advanced level, but whenever I have an opportunity to practice it more, I take advantage. I speak to my wife and kids in Portuguese, and they respond in Spanish.

Do you play capoeira, dance samba/pagode/forró/baile funk/etc, or otherwise do Brazil-related activities on a regular basis?

Sempre que podemos, vamos aos restaurantes brasileiros da area e visitamos aos nossos amigos brasileiros. Whenever we can, we go to the Brazilian restaurants in the area and visit with our Brazilian friends.

When are you available for Meetups?

Pelas noites ou durante os finais de semana. At night or on the weekends.
