a mask so thoroughly decorated with F-bombs he had to remove it for a photo.

He got so good that he became part of his samba school's band that participated in the contest at the Carnival of Rio. And won. Again, he had started something just on a whim and out of curiosity, but then wouldn't let go until he became very good at it."

I thought his degree was chemical engineering, but I may be mixing him up with Dolph Lundgren.  Impressive either way.
