What events would you like to happen with the group?

I often attend performances by Brazilian-American groups such as Forró da Madame and NationBeat. Those events are a lot of fun.

What is your native language? How much Portuguese do you speak?

I took 2 semesters of Portuguese a few years ago, but I fear that I have forgotten much of it. (My Spanish is better than my Portuguese, and more current.)

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

Not yet, but I do hope to visit soon.

Would you please provide your name (in case you did not use it) and email address? This information will not be displayed in the group.

No answer yet


I have worked in Latin American Emerging Markets at a major Wall Street firm and am pursuing graduate studies in Economics with a focus on that region. I need opportunities to improve my language skills.
