My self-summary
I have to confess that at first I began this profile because of a bet I've lost. Obviously, for the monstrous length of this thing, I may have taken the bet way too seriously. But you know what, I can see some value in this online matching/dating world. It seems to be a valid way to meet noteworthy people, thought, besides seeing some pretty disturbing stuff....because: internet.

My bad, not very self-summary like. But be honest, would you really like a bunch of keywords that would make me look like a living advertisement? A charming, polite, educated, sensible, sensitive, well-humored, passionate brazilian piece of advertisement? Batteries not included. And hey, no kinky thoughts!

Where was I? Oh, yeah, if I had to guess the reason you're really here, I would say it's probably bad luck. Or karma. Or a friend of yours that told you "OMG, check this profile", which, again, could mean karma. The good kind.

Perhaps you just got curious because I appeared as a possible match, or maybe I've sent you a message, got you curious and now you're here, reading about er...yourself?...

Anyhow, I digress.

Either that or you got bored and randomly clicked strangers, which is fine. Unadvised, but fine.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out the whole life, universe and everything thingy.
There is that and the studying/working with some pretty nice stuff, helping, in way, the world be a nicer place.
I’m really good at
being on denial that I'm already a grown up productive member of society.
Yeah, you heard it... Pro-duc-tive. And stop being weird thinking that this has a sexual connotation. Gonads talk only after a certain number of dates.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
You see, I'm very curious, maybe too curious (hey hey, no, not that type of curious. Although there was tha...), leading to a way bigger list than the one below.

Machado de Assis and Luís Fernando Veríssimo for excellent novels and short stories.
"Hägar: The Horrible" and "Calvin and Hobbes". It's just brilliant.

On some serious, I-can-introduce-him-to-my-parents-and-he-will-not-embarass-me literature, I would say that "Risk" and "Invictus" are in all likelihood two of the most aspiring things I've ever read. Same goes for some Ella Wilcox poems, and some Tostoy or Dostoievsky - or however you write his name -. Kundera is quite nice as well.

Right now I am reading a bunch of books and articles on culture, heritage, cooperation, and development.
Nothing says fun as UNESCO Guidelines...

For romance movies, go for Wong Kar-Wai.
If you want to be mesmerized go for Peter Greenaway or Terry Gilliam.

Oh yes, and movies such as "Crocodile Dundee", "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", ”Lawrence of Arabia", or "Stranger than Fiction" exist to be watched as much as possible.

Every genre has its moment, and I mean it.
Yeah yeah, generic answer, I get it, but hey, can you imagine yourself listening to Daft Punk while, I don't know, stargazing? And I'm not talking about "Get Lucky" Daft Punk, I'm saying fax machine Daft Punk. It just seems wrong...
For those moments: good old stereotyped Hank Williams, or Nick Drake. Or R.E.M, or Nina Simone. Or Tom Rush. Or The XX. Any R&B really. In fact, non fax machine music or construction site music is fine.

Other than that, playlist holds indie rock, rock, blues, jazz, electronic, chanson, world music, baroque and romantic and pretty much anything I end up considering good music.

You know what, it's time for me to say it. Lana del Rey and that other kid Lorde are quite good and I'm not THAT ashamed to admit I like them.

Favorite song that most likely will make you seduce me? "Man on Fire".

………Sports & Outdoors………
Rowing is fun. Same goes for climbing. But nowadays I end up just getting myself hurt doing any weekend activity. Gym is... different. The eye contact policy during exercises intrigues me.

Oh yes, and there is surfing. Ahhhhh surfing. The one pleasant, most likely to be embarrassing (and also injuring) experience, but fun nevertheless. And hell, I might look silly when I do it, but nobody will ever ever take out of my mind that I just look awesome when I come out of the sea holding the surfboard. Slow motion and everything...
The six things I could never do without
I guess I could do without a lot of stuff. And besides, never is quite a long time.

Did I sound too hippie or unattached? I did sound a little hippie, didn't I? Which brings up the question: Could I do without hippies? Well... I don't know. Those aura reading people do freak me out sometimes, but I don't know, I think I like them, really. And if I say I could do without hippies I'm afraid I may end up sounding like an ass who hates hippies... And I definitely could do without asses. (the people I mean, not the... Well, you understand how you want to...).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what my mama said to me when I was a young boy. She said that there was only one girl in the world for me, and that she probably lived in Tahiti.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing different things depending on a lot of variables.
I might be home, at the movies, opera, a bar, concert hall, restaurant, solo, with friends, with acquaintances, working, sleeping, reading, on Netflix, here, on a plane, at a hotel, studying, trying to find the love of my life, facetiming with someone in Sweden, at the library, watching a TED video, "cooking", oddly positioned at my couch while shamefully eating food one cannot eat without feeling ashamed (confess, we have all been there... )

It depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't stop feeling like I'm in a department store for likable people when I use this thing. Specially when I window-shop people. Sorry, by the way.

Hey, look, discounts! OMG, sales!!!!

Update: I felt horribly bad bookmarking people here, so from now on, I'm a people bookmark free person.
