A traveler and visual storyteller. Brazilian native from Sao Paulo who lived in 3 cities and 3 countries before most recently calling New York City his home. I am passionate about my craft and strive to turn both the ordinary and the unusual into something extraordinary. I began my professional career as a photographer in New York, where i was particularly drawn to street photography. I covered Eastern Europe and lived in London for a couple years before eventually moving to New York, where i studied photography at the International Center of Photography (ICP).

NYC HIDDEN GEMS!
  • New York City is often described as a cultural melting pot but when it comes to Culinary, Shopping, Fashion and Art+Design the city is a historical mosaic. Stunning gothic architecture co-exists with modern skyscrapers, while neo-dive bars neighbor slick art galleries. For the design aficionado, Manhattan is a visual feast full of opportunities to rouse the senses. While the city is vast, i have narrowed down a few of my favorite real gems spots to eat, see and get inspired! As any New Yorker will tell you, there's no way to see all the highlights of this vast, complex city in just one visit. That's part of the thrill of visiting the Big Apple—there's always something new to discover. But all of the tantalizing options can also make it hard to plan a trip. Instead of trying to see, eat, drink, and do it all, I have highlighted the musts—from iconic landmarks to local favorites—at the top of my list.

SHOPPING LOCAL

For the fashion enthusiast looking for pieces reflective of New York City’s effortlessly cool aesthetic, look no further than lower Manhattan’s boutiques with a sustainable focus. Word of warning: you maybe need to bring an extra suitcase home with you.

EAT LIKE A LOCAL

It's hard to tell a tourist to stay out of Times Square — it's a spectacle worth seeing; there's great theater to be seen and (comparatively) cheap hotels to stay in. But when it comes to eating in this area, there lays the greatest concentration of overpriced, mediocre food in the city. My idea to go just a few blocks south and west to Chelsea, where you can follow the High Line — a gorgeous elevated park space. Or, pick up a Citi Bike and take the Hudson River Greenway to a myriad of delicious spots, from the quick eats inside Chelsea Market to the high-end Italian restaurants Del Posto and Scarpetta. To the south and east of Midtown we'll find lively Union Square. Just below Union Square, you'll stumble upon the East Village, which houses a unique mix of cheap-ethnic (Zabb Elee, Maharlika, Caracas), famous-chef (Momofuku, Alder, Prune) and stellar New American (Hearth, Goat Town, Back Forty) restaurants. Pick a few neighborhoods to explore each day and you won't be disappointed. Try the Lower East Side for Jewish classics (see below), Chinatown for soup dumplings (a.k.a. xiao long bao, a New York favorite by way of Shanghai) and Harlem for great African food (both modern and traditional). And once you're familiar with Manhattan…

Must See and Do

  • New York City's five boroughs are home to some of the world's most recognizable, cherished landmarks and attractions. From Times Squareand Central Park to the Empire State Building and One World Observatory, the island of Manhattan packs more famous icons into one compact area than any other place on earth; and that's to say nothing of the City's four other boroughs—The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island—each of which contains its own roster of must-see destinations. With so much to see and do, i have rounded up the attractions that belong on any visitor's to-see list. To get a sense of the City's full breadth of activities and real gems!
