I am originally from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. I hold a BS in Business Management and a BA in Sociology from Siena College, NY. I'm currently doing a Masters in Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy at the Vienna University of Economics in Vienna, Austria. I have always been interested in socioeconomic/political issues. I'm particularly fascinated by the world of wiki and how the collaborative approach to sharing information is changing the world through innovative technology and the internet. I love traveling. Experiencing other cultures is thrilling and addictive. I also love sports, with a little bias for soccer for being Brazilian. I find it hard to keep the “mind” functioning well if we take little care of our body. Mente sã, corpo são.
