My personal passion has always been curiosity, which has led to my involvement in many aspects of the nightlife and music industry (I promote Old Style and PBR in my day job), artistic world, DIY underground and overall good times in and around Chicago. I spend my days exploring everything Chicago and exposing myself to a spectrum of interesting local people. I currently live at the intersection of Innertown Pub and Rainbo. Legit.

I'm keeping my ears and eyes open to my surroundings. I do my best to stay up on current events, sports, entertainment and music news, but I lack street cred in fashion and finance. I aspire to be a wonderful son, brother, friend, and someday a dad. In the mean time, I explore the greatest city in the world with a few good friends and a light buzz.

I've always had an interest in music, fashion and social scenes. My everyday life consists of all those things. From the tattoo shop and bar I work at to making clothes from vintage items, singing in a band to enjoying Chicago festivals and nightlife. I keep my life on a consistent 'have as much fun as possible doing the things I love' basis.

I love the streets, I love Chicago, I love photography, I love people and I love fashion. So guess what? In April 2009, a few months after moving from São Paulo, Brazil, I started a streetstyle blog, Chicago Looks. It has been one of my main sources of fun since then. My goal is to prove ANYONE can be fashionable, and that it's really worth trying. Beautiful and authentic people make me happy. I hope my pictures make you happy too!

Moved into my first apartment in Wicker Park, even though I’m more hoopster than hipster. Most of these posts will be infused with a hint of Jack Daniels, basically these are the thoughts the Jack pulls out of me.
