I study the ocean and have travelled to many parts of the globe for work and research. I have been in Antarctica a few times studying some effects of climate change on marine communities.
I am conscious about my health, practice yoga, swim, surf and snowboard. I also care about my food and eat mostly organics, non-GMO, etc. But I am not fierce about other people's eating habits. You are what you are/eat!
When I am not at work (which can be at a research ship, a submarine or a marine lab) nor outdoors surfing or hiking I like to read, specially about science, sustainability and fiction. I like camping and have spent a lot of time exploring incredible places in Hawaii (where I lived for 6 years).
I also like to cook and often get together with friends to cook Brazilian dishes. I like to be around laidback people but who still have wishes and dreams...I feel very accomplished in my career although I keep pursuing new projects and dreams.
Moved to Victoria from Sao Paulo, Brazil, about a year and a half ago. Ran away from the 12-million people mess, 19 in the big metropolis. More than 2/3 of the whole Canada's population.
I speak three languages fluently but still would like to learn French and Italian.
Hoping to find a simple, interesting girl out there. If you appreciate the power and respect the ocean and nature even better.
