My self-summary
Significant bits ... i'm originally from Portugal but im not a lazy european, i've been here in the US for way too long. I spent several years in LA doing my PhD before landing in the Bay Area. I ended up in SF, a city of misfits and weird people.

I like to travel, been pretty much in all Europe, South America, Japan. I've lived in NY, Paris and Portugal. I've spent some time in the South of Brazil surfing. Speak portuguese, spanish, a bit of french and italian, and of course english.

Like to laugh and make people laugh, an eternal optimist that always see the glass half full.
