Location Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, Ireland

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, and moved to Ireland in April 2000. Happily married to Mark Lenahan and currently living in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. I have had lots of different "phases" or interests in my life and, right now, I am back to my "nipponic" phase, reading lots of Manga and books with a Japanese theme.

I wanted to put the picture below as the main picture in my profile, but Mark didn't think it was very good. Could not resist: it's me and Scruffy O'Bear (but that's another story...)
