I was born in 1979 in Salvador, a beach-city in the state of Bahia, in northeastern Brazil. I'm currently going to Law school, but I work as a translator. I've lived in Europe a few years, went to college in Greece, visited a few other countries, learned a few languages. In fact, I like learning languages very much (which is one of the reasons why I became a translator), and I love learning about new cultures. I'm fairly open-minded, and I appreciate having friends who share this quality. I deeply dislike racism and ethnocentrism, in any shape or form. In my opinion, we should always strive to become better - as people, as individuals, as professionals, as parents, as sons and daughters, as human beings. Thus, I consider narrowmindedness (which usually takes on the disguise of racism, intolerance and so on) as a retrograde step on the long road of evolution.

I enjoy peacefulness, tranquility, but I don't mind a little adventure once in a while. I love travelling, meeting new people and learning about their culture. I absolutely love multiculturalism, and even more when it happens without intolerance, preconception or prejudice. A different opinion doesn't necessary nullify our own -- rather, it is yet another possibility to do, or see, things differently.

I like music a lot, too. I love heavy metal in all of its variants, and also Classical Music. I enjoy some blues and jazz, but more the former than the latter. Some country music can be fun, too. :-)

My all-time favourite band is, without hesitation, Iron Maiden. But I listen to basically every style in the metal world -- I may not like a band, but that doesn't mean I don't like the metal style it plays. In fact, that's one of the reasons why I worked as a heavy metal journalist for years, and actually still write stories on bands and do interviews with them from time to time.

And that's pretty much it, I think. You have a general idea about me now. :-)
