I am from the island of Santa Maria, and i always have been connected to the sea and music by the influence of my father. In 1999 I returned to the island, to work as Aeronautical Information and Communications Operator at the Santa Maria Oceanic Control Center. At that time I acquired my first boat and evolved to the current sailboat ALLEGRO. My hobbies are sailing on the island, walking trails, playing football and playing drums in a musical project Ronda da Madrugada. I also participate in several other musical groups ... I like listening jazz and rock music, and my favorite artists are Sting, Peter Gabriel and Dave Matthews Band and Dave Holand... My dream is to travel to solo sailing and meet all the Atlantic islands! My latest hobby is to get you on board to relax and explore the bays of Santa Maria and our beautiful sea. It is an honor to welcome you on board!
