I work in the magazine and documentary film business based in New York, Los Angeles and Rio.(If you would like to know more about my career, here is my Linkedin profile -- http://www.linkedin.com/pub/david-parker/0/484/94)
I discovered Brazil in 2000 when I was exploring South America for the first time. I feel in love with Brazil and Rio in particular -- and began traveling often to get to know the country and people better.
With lots of flexibility in my work, I spend more than 4 months a year in Brazil.
I bought these 2 very special duplex penthouses 8 years ago. It's a bit a paradise just 2 blocks from the beach. After hosing many friends from around the world, I decided to open up my home to other travelers -- offering a wonderful, luxurious, and secure home for them in Rio at a very reasonable price.
I love helping visitors, especially those coming for the first time to Rio, to get the most out of this 'marvelous city'.
