Hello and thank you for wanting to get to know me a little better. I am a Brazilian from São Paulo City and I was born in 1976. I left my home country in 1998 and I have been living like a gypsy for 15 years. When I first left Brazil, I headed to Germany for a year, then I stopped in the UAE for four years and then it was Russia for two and a half years, followed by South Korea during four years. Just when I thought it was it, I landed in China, where I have been residing since 2010. No matter where, I am always accompanied by my husband, son and our dogs.
Do I have any complaints about this nomadic way of life? Only if I had to live somewhere forever and no longer be able to move again. The road is the air I breathe. Once I reached the thirtieth country visited (already some years ago) I stopped counting how many places I have visited and returned to, but I never stopped counting those others where I still want to go.
Other than Portuguese, I speak English, German and French. I also studied Arabic and a little Russian and my Mandarin is basic (really basic). The truth is that I’m tired of studying languages (at least for now), since today I’m studying Theatre Studies by distance at Rose Bruford College, UK.
Now that you know me a little better, I hope I can count on your regular visits to my creative space. Maybe you might even want to discuss some aspects of my writing using the “contact form” for this, however, remember that the role of a writer is to ask questions and not necessarily to answer them. Use your imagination for that and thanks for stopping by!
