I would describe myself as a very bright and nice person who is capable of doing many things well. I believe one of my best qualities is my willingness to listen and to learn. I like to keep an open mind about everything and to get feedback from others so that I can improve on what I am doing. Things can always get better with more effort and dedication.
I am an electronics engineer by training and am very happy with my career. I really like technical work, but at the same time I am very appreciative of the fine arts. My hobbies include piano playing and photography. I am a very competent amateur in both fields and still believe in continuing to improve myself. Maybe one day I might be able to leave my day job, but I am very realistic about that, lol... Another activity I enjoy doing is working out and staying in very good shape.
Being born in Brazil my first language is Portuguese, but these days I am far more fluent in English. I have had the good fortune to travel to several different countries - many countries in Western Europe, Ukraine, Japan, Taiwan, Chile etc. This has helped me to get a very balanced world view and to gain and understanding and appreciation of many different cultures. I am usually very excited to travel to places where I have never been.
My ideal partner is someone who is open minded, smart and refined. Mutual respect is also something that I find essential in any relationship. I like to stay positive and hope I can find someone who has a similar temperament. Personality wise I can be a bit timid and quiet at first, but once I get comfortable I do talk a lot more.
