About your host

Born in the state of Minas Gerais and a loving citizen of Rio, I'm a student of the Architecture and Urban Planning graduation of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). I believe in walking as a way of building the cities and in understanding our history as a tool for creating the future.
