I was born and raised in São Paulo, but at the age of 20 I went to explore Europe, where I lived and traveled between Portugal, England, and Spain for about 10 years. My relationship with tourism blossomed there, where I worked with hospitality, events, and private guide services in international tourism. I acquired practical fluency in both Spanish and English and had the opportunity to come in contact with many diverse cultures, thus obtaining the needed experience to engage many different types of people. In 2012, I decided to return to Brazil, where I molded the knowledge and experiences I learned abroad to my passion of tourism in my beloved hometown. São Paulo is beautiful. It truly has surprising places with diverse historical and natural aspects, and for that reason I really love to work in my city by highlighting the customs and peculiarities that contrast the daily modern life of São Paulo with the history and personalities that have been present since the foundation of the city. I love taking tourists and immersing them in the local culture. Come with me and view this stunning city the way I do!
Born and raised in São Paulo, I always had an intense attraction for languages and different civilizations. As a child, I took part in a community group at the Lithuanian neighborhood´s church, where I got my first taste of a different culture. In my adolescence, I started exploring the city after school and little by little, I accumulated knowledge about the diversity of the surrounding neighborhoods, cultural centers, and international communities of São Paulo. Deciding to journey further and explore more, I spent a few months in France and St. Barth, where I had the chance to learn French and really take in French culture. After that, I also had the privilege to tour most of the countries in South America and Europe and also survey the US, Africa, and Asia.
My first job was teaching English, but after university, where I studied International Relations, Communications and Tourism, I found a new passion as a tour manager by entertaining visitors and international artists for the music industry for a couple of years. After a few years working as a consultant in Marketing and Communications, I decided to use my talent with languages and hospitality to dedicate myself to my passions: São Paulo´s cultural scene and it's natural adventures. Here, I get to give my clients VIP treatment all while introducing them to the sights and sounds that I grew up loving.
Introducing São Paulo to the world is one of my greatest pleasures. I’ve always been a vivacious person, who’s passionate about working with people, specifically those from other nations and cultures. It’s been my career and my passion for over 10 years now and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon! Showing people my favorite hidden gems, places that the locals frequent or places that tourists would normally overlook is something I love. I especially enjoy bringing people on private or customized tours where I can best accommodate and show off my city. Showing others the Brazilian way and Brazilian culture through the sights, sounds, and energy of the city brings a smile to my face. This city holds so much history, its customs and curiosities are apparent around every corner. It’s with great, great pleasure that I present my homeland to anyone who wants to know São Paulo in an authentic way. Let’s enjoy the city. Come and discover the wonders of Brazil!
