Born 1972 - Brazil

I grew up playing games with my siblings and friends from the neighborhood. We would get together and play the usual suspects, Risk, Clue, monopoly, etc… but mostly I played card games.

In 1999 while in an International Exchange program I would hang out with some friends from Germany and they had a copy of Die Siedler von Catan (Settlers of Catan) and a card game called Bohnanza. We would play several times a week and I just fell in love with board games. I was also introduced to Carcassone and a few others.

I kept playing board games infrequently  throughout the years and became passionate with other hobbies.

In 2015 I decided to get some games to play with my daughter and my passion for board games came back stronger than ever.  I joined a couple of local board game groups and started playing several times a week.

I started making board game videos a couple of years ago because it was something my daughter wanted to do.  I just enjoyed so much that I kept going. I have so much fun doing segments for Board Game Breakfast, Throat Punch Lunch and Crowd Surfing.

Being part of Dice Tower has been a blast for me.
