Occasional thinker
With plenty of time on my hands
Acting, listening to songs I like, translating, writing, singing... Learn (and practice) new languages... Nurturing my passion of buying CD's and that kind of stuff (I've got a collection of 150+ original CD's - I prefer the physical formats other than the digital ones). -And to be honest most of the translations I submit are of songs that are in the CD's I have-. Italian and Brazilian music - as you may see, I'm a huge fan of Italian (my favorites are Laura Pausini, Nek, L'Aura, Arisa, Tiziano Ferro and Eros Ramazotti) [I have also grown interested in the Sanremo Music Festival, so I'm translating almost all albums of the artists that perform there] and Brazilian (my favorites are Marisa Monte, Nando Reis, Ana Carolina, Zélia Duncan and Vanessa da Mata) music. I've also grown interested in Brazilian Modern Art (specially the ones made from 1922 on).
About me

English teacher based in Rio de Janeiro.

Currently I'm only fluent in English (besides my native Portuguese). I know a little bit of Spanish (I had to study a year of it when I in school, but I forgot most of it). I have limited knowledge of German, Italian, Dutch and French due to me listening to songs in these languages and then searching for what their lyrics meant.

Please read the copyright note I have written and that can be found under any of my translations around. In case you want to reprint my translations elsewhere please contact me first. In case you want to use any translation of mine as a model for yours (you want to make a translation from my translation), please do that as well.

Best wishes.
