Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can't host at the moment, but like building community, meeting up, and learning & sharing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a lot of different types of music. Brazil got me into a mix of samba, hiphop and funk, but I also like calmer folky stuff, girly indie music, and downtempo.

I read interesting fiction I stumble across, some denser things, and pop-psychology trash... some all-time faves: Lolita, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands

I love movies

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Stargazing in the very middle of the Atlantic ocean (so clear!)... completely drunk on stars
- Listening to the wind on the Siberian taiga
- Sitting in front of boiling lake in Dominica after a hike through the greenest jungle <3

Teach, Learn, Share

I think we all tend to know and teach what we like. I like lots of things... biology, engineering & problem solving, urban development, ethnography, design. Most of all I like people and ideas of collaboration & connection.

podemos conversar em português? quero praticar! ou vou esquecer tudo! hehehe

or teach me your favorite words in your language, or teach me your favorite dance (with patience! ;) ).
