About me

Transient

My name is Gustavo. I am 3o something and I live in Toronto, Canada. I am Brazilian as much as I am Canadian, although I am neither one absolutely. This sometimes confuses me.  I am an optimist, an adventurer and a dreamer. I am married and getting married was the smartest decision I have ever made.  I have done lots of things to make money: I taught English for 4 years, I was a translator for some time. I sold coffee, jeans and shoes. I love traveling, spending time with friends, music and gadgets. To me soccer is an equal source of absolute joy and extreme suffering. I left Brazil more than a decade ago and I landed in Canada with 2 suitcases, a wife and a dream. 2 suitcases became a home. Toronto is my home.  My mind is full of ideas, thoughts and images. I organize and disorganize myself at my own convenience. I take the subway, I am crazy about music and I practice yoga. I love triathlons but I can’t commit to all the training required. I learned how to cook because I hate what fast food stands for. I don’t seem to have enough free time. I have dear friends who are my connection to who I was and they somehow show me how I got here. At 31 I found out that life is short and I decided to grab every opportunity by the horns. I also know that many others will slip between my fingers. In 2017, I spent 2 months in Asia and this experience taught me what life is all about.
