– Door Countian –

Hello there! Here is a little bit of my story…

I grew up in São José dos Pinhais/Curitiba, PR, in Brazil, loved every minute of it, and as many folks out there, I dreamed of becoming a lawyer. And so I did. I graduated Law School in Brazil in the end of 2006, but soon after moved to Door County – with a heart full of hope and enthusiasm. Why? During my forth year of Law, in 2005 (in Brazil it is a five year program), I took a year of absence to travel and experience life differently. I ended up in the beautiful Door County Peninsula, Wisconsin, arriving during a snowstorm, to work at the Piggly Wiggly in Sister Bay. Needless to say, I fell in love. I fell in love with the way life feels here, with the community, with the creative vibe, with the change of the seasons, with the Great Lakes, and with a very handsome local… We have now been married for almost 11 years, we have an imaginative six year old, and a home full of life.

So here I am, fifteen years later.
And I am still in love with this place.

Welcome – It is nice to meet you!
