My motto these days is a phrase in Portuguese, "sim pode", which means "yes you/he/she can". For myself it means I can do anything I work hard at; for my students it means there is no limit to their potential.
I am super attracted to women who speak foreign languages.
I always have a book in my backpack. Right now it is the original Calvin & Hobbes.
If you don't believe in evolution you are ignoring a lot of hard science and listening to the wrong people.
I teach music to 250 kids a week at two different schools around Boston. Its a fucking blast, and is très dificíl. Originally I am a drummer, but I have been fortunate to be able to learn to play and collect a bunch of instruments. Playing piano and singing are my favorites.
My real, long-term goal is to be fluent in 5 languages. Somehow I will get there... I recently decided to save up for a backpacking trip of Europe in 2015.
I'm a character.
