I mostly spend time with the family. My wife, two teenage sons and I are all involved in music, whether playing wind instruments or singing. I also enjoy photography. Every year I take my favorite shots and publish an art calendar that we give away to family members.
I was born in Colorado Springs, but grew up in southern Brazil, so I consider Curitiba my hometown. So of course I’m a huge soccer fan. Go Timbers!
I studied construction at a technical high school in Brazil. My first job was working for a road survey firm there. I also lived 4 years in Switzerland where I studied music, fried spring rolls in street markets, delivered newspapers and taught English and Portuguese in a language school.
