I am a lawyer in Curitiba, Brazil. Formerly, my taste was focused in wine drinking, as I got in close contact with several producers in Europe and South America and became familiarized with a small part of the incredible and splendid literature related to the subject. About 20 years ago, I came to be also very interested in mixology, blending, and cocktail experiences after I began to read the Cocktail column written by Paul Harrington in the Hotwired Magazine, edited in 90s. Since then, the cocktail world was opened to me as an elegant, luscious and multilayered culture. I consider a privilege to be a remote part of it, even as a hobbyist.
