  • Description

    Hello!!! =)

    My boyfriend Philipe and I are both from Brazil but we are always moving around. We are very curious and willing to learn more about the world and ourselves. We lived in New York City in and off for 4 years and now we are living up in the mountains in Boulder, Colorado. We try to work in one place for 1 year and then take 6 months off to travel/volunteer. We love big cities as much as to be isolated in remote areas.

    I've been using Workaway since 2009 and I could call it a lifestyle. I've had many Workaway experiences alone in places such as Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Peru, India...

    With Philipe we have had some unforgettable experiences using Workaway as well. Together we spent 2 months in Hawaii working in a coffee farm and also planting grass in a house. We were in Australia living with a beautiful family inside a National Park helping with their sustainable business for 3 months. Last year we were in Nepal helping 3 young boys with Muscular Dystrophy.

    We've had an amazing time working in exchange for food, accommodation and friendship for a lifetime. We love to be outdoors, traveling around and meeting people.

    I'm a writer and a nomad. I lived in different countries such as USA, Peru, New Zealand and Australia. Also, in 2013 I spent 6 months traveling with low budget and volunteering as an English teacher to underprivileged children in Southeast Asia. This experience turned into a book published by a crowdfunding campaign and later I produced an independent documentary about it. Before I've done different jobs in hospitality, restaurants, bar, teaching, child care... I have a degree in Tourism and Hospitality. I enjoy cooking and hands-on projects.

    My boyfriend Philipe is a great Physiotherapist licensed in Brazil, USA and Australia. Before he has done many different jobs such as construction, server and soccer coach for children. He used to be a professional soccer player back in Brazil. He loves fixing things and learning new skills.

    We are a very easy going couple who love to exchange ideas and experiences with interesting people, having meaningful conversations, exploring places and learning from new challenges. We love big cities as much as to be totally isolated in remote areas. We are willing to learn new skills and to give as much as we can.

    We love kids and dogs.
    We don't smoke.
    We love sports.
