I was able to visit the Santa Marta Favela in Rio de Janeiro while shooting for KICKTV in Brasil during the 2014 World Cup. Love being able to play with these young footballers. They were cool enough to allow me to take their portraits. I love the people of this country.
Excited to be back in Rio de Janeiro thanks to @YTBrasil. This should be a very fun & insightful week. Representing @KICKTV, I’m fortunate enough to be in RJ mentoring some of the most influential Futebol channels on YouTube at YouTube Creator Camp Brazil 2013. I apologize in advance as my Português is basically non-existent, however I’ll be doing my best to share some of the knowledge we at KICKTV have learned on our amazing journey to over 700,000 subscribers to date.
Welcome to Chapeau Magueira, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
I’m lucky enough to be able to work “On Location” for @KICKTV (the youtube soccer super-channel) here in Brazil and was able to meet some wonderfully amazingly beautiful people. Very fortunate to be able to connect with the kind hearts of Rio. Blessed.
The youngster in the Fluminense kit took the last picture of me. My jaw dropped when I saw this picture, talented young man. I give him 2R$, he said he was, “Throwing a party.”
While visiting Santos FC’s famous training grounds, Menios da Vila in Santos, Brazil, I ran into these favela kids. Everson, the ground’s security guard kept them all in check, calling them “my little soldiers.” They’ve been know to cause some mischief, flying kites, and smashing stuff up all around the property. Menios da Vila is responsible for developing some of the best futebol talent in the world including Pele, Robinho, and Neymar.

Did this last Friday. Shout out to Ryan Davis - he’s got skills.
HUF x High Times Collaboration. This has been over a year that this has been in the works for me. I’m responsible for these being made… This is a very proud moment.
