João Pedro Soares is a carioca from Rio who has surrendered himself to the enchanted knowledge of the forest. He is a journalist who loves to travel to find and tell the stories that have been forgotten by history.

Paulo and El País Brazil. In his life as a reporter, a journey that started at the age of 19, he learned quickly that the secret is to listen more than speak.
