Although I was born in Rio de Janeiro, I spent a lot of my life in Boca Raton, Florida. Once I graduated high school, I knew I wanted to move back to the vibrant city of Rio. I loved this city so much that I decided to go into tourism.
I got my degree in tourism at a university in Rio and also trained under some awesome local guides. There are so many reasons why I decided to be a tour guide, but mostly it’s because I get to wake up everyday and meet new people from all over the world. This makes every day different and exciting. I am never bored with my job. Showing all that there is to love in this city is truly my passion. I may not have lived here my entire life, but I definitely won’t be leave this place that I love any time soon.
