Slowtwitch.com interviews him about his career and living in Brooklyn Heights:
ST: Share with us some of your food likes and dislikes.
Joao: Yeah food is a bit of a problem for me. I really, really like to eat. I have to fight very hard to behave at the table. Italian is my number one weakness. Mozzarella di Bufala is particularly problematic. Rabbit anyway is a usually a killer as well since normally I have to eat it with a nice bottle of Barolo. I eat a lot of Sushi when I am home. Tiiu and I live in Brooklyn Heights and have a great sushi spot around the corner. Obviously Portuguese food is something I need to eat. Funny enough, Tiiu and I are also huge breakfast people. When I’m home we go out to breakfast a lot and, yeah, it’s a problem. Next question.
ST: What music do you enjoy?
Joao: I was just commenting on Twitter the other day that I felt like I’ve become a kid again! I am listening to way too much hip-hop and rap. Mos Def is high on the playlist before the stages. Biggie, Snoop Dog, 50 Cent, Tribe Called Quest. It’s out of control. Having said that I also listen to classical to relax since its tough to relax to Biggie.
