VIVIAN MESSINA

A little about me, I'm very creative, energetic and outgoing. My primary passions are art and surfing and I have been very lucky to be able to make them part of my lifestyle and my professional  development . 

 

 

In my teenage years I competed a lot at a national level surfing in Brazil and was heading towards a career as a professional surfer, but I decided to follow an academic path, where I shifted to São Paulo to do my university degree and started working for some of the biggest marketing agencies in Brasil (Fnazca saatchi & saatchi  and Dentsu).

 

 

After 3 years of 15 hour days and uni I shifted back to my hometown of Guaruja and back to the beach where I realised how much I missed my primary passion of surfing and quickly got back into the beach lifestyle.

 

The next stage of my life was travel,  i have surfed in Peru, traveled down the west coast of the U.S, traveled around  of NZ, after started a new dream living in Bali for almost 5 months, and Travel has become a passion and way of life, much like surfing and art, for 2016 i've been in Central America for  3 months doing some Freelancer jobs and discovered the Caribbean part, where became one of my favourite places in the world, or is better i saying Bluff's Beach 🏝 🌊 

To sum up, I'm a 29 y/o Brazilian, I have a university degree in social communication  that I completed in Brazil, I'm currently based in Auckland, New Zealand.
