My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hard to talk about yourself, is not it? Let's see...
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.

I also like to cook and often get together with friends to cook Brazilian dishes. I like to be around laid back people that are not taking life too seriously nowadays...I feel very accomplished in my career at this point and now want to enjoy life more fully.

Moved to Victoria from Sao Paulo, Brazil, about a year 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finished my PhD in Oceanography in Hawaii in 2012 and worked in Brazil (my home country) in 2013. Now living in Victoria and working for Ocean Networks Canada based at UVic. I work with deep-sea biodiversity, conservation and climate change, and work in the largest ocean cabled observatory in the planet, just off Vancouver Island.

Besides work, I always like to learn new things and get inspired by people who does the same. I am learning to play guitar and the ukelele and already play other musical instruments, drums and berimbau (used for capoeira, a Brazilian dance/martial art).

Since my work involves taking pictures and filming the deep seafloor I started to study photography a bit more seriously and bought myself a nice equipment that I have been trying out in my most recent trips to France, Germany, California, Norway, Spain, Brazil, England, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Yoga (8 years of practice now but still learning actually)
Being patient
Following my dreams
Helping friends

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
playing and listening to music
best friends and family
hammock under the trees playing guitar or the ukelele (I am learning)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- the viscosity of the ocean, its scents and movements;
- the name I will give to my first sail boat;
- a book I am writing about my adventures in Antarctica, Hawaii and New Zealand;
- where I will be riding my next wave;
- where would be the coolest place to deploy a camera in the bottom of the ocean;
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies a lot. Depends on the mood and the crowd around me really.
