I was born in Sao Paolo, Brasil. Moved to United States when I was 14 years old. Didn't know the language much, with my mother's help, I was able to learn in one year. I graduated from Highland Park High School, in Topeka, Kansas in 1984. I didn't know whether to go to college or join the military, so I chose the Navy, that was in 1984, stayed and retired in 2004. I visited almost the whole world before I retired from the Navy in 2004. Here are the places that I been to, Rota, Madrid (big fan of Real Madrid), Benidorm , Sevilla, Barcelona Spain, Italy, Naples, Rome (yes The Cathedral), Sigonella, Greece, Turkey, Lisbon Portugal, Germany, Landstuhl , Russia, Kosovo, Kuwaiti, Saudi Arabia plus others can't say, Before that I, enjoyed Japan for 2 years, in Yokosuka, Yokohama, loved Tokyo most populated city in the world, finally got to know basic Japanese no Kanji, Osan , Pusan Korea, Philippines, Bangkok Thailand, Hong Kong, Yes for Bruce Lee lovers,Perth and Sidney Australia most beautiful blue water in the world yes beach with true white sand and Kangaroos'; I was having too much fun than gotten stationed in Panama, that's when I practiced my Spanish, went to Honduras, Guatemala other places cant talk about it plus one day I will post money and memories from every place I visited . Too young to retire, so I continued to work at a naval installation near by. When I found out about Verbalizeit I thought that it was the greatest idea since the invention of bread specially when the World Cup is going to be held in Brasil, Love it! Oh I was on Fantastico Brazilian history channel for been the only Brazilian on a Aircraft carrier USS America CV-66 deployed to Kuwait, cool huh? Accomplish all that before I made 40 years of age, so you can tell I love to travel and meet all sorts of people from all over the World...
