About Me

CURRENT MISSION

take a look around the world

ABOUT ME

I’m a dreamer, a full time dreamer, must say, but I like to keep one foot on the ground, just in case.

Currently I’m working as a social educator with young girls who have been taken out from their families. It’s an intense job as it is very rewarding.

In part-time I also write; I’m a videogames journalist and time-to-time, when I have time, I write about cinema as well.

I like to do different things at the same time and always thinking in new projects :)

My friends say I'm quite sociable, but that’s suspicious of me to say this :P

I like reading, writing, going to cinema, play music and Playstation, among, walk in the part, museums, that kind of stuff. Specially during sunny days.
I do enjoy Sci-fi, but no exclusively :)

I'd like to meet new people who can teach me interesting things or to have discussions with different points of view.

PHILOSOPHY

Pursue your dreams peacefully and, in the way, remember to help others in need.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted and surfed as well.

All experiences have been great. The people I’ve met were very open mind and available for a good talk.

I’ve think CS is a good opportunity to know different people, cultures and an excellent way to travel, even when hosting :)

Interests

Arts in general [writing, cinema, photo, theatre, etc]

Voluntary work and social intervention.

Always into for a good chat and to have a good time, chillin'.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I must confess that the last thing I'm really proud of was when I went to Mozambique, on a voluntary mission, to give formation to primary teachers.
Nowadays I like a lot to work with young girls that for some reason can't be with their families. I’m starting a musical project with them and that rocks :D

Teach, Learn, Share

While CS I'm also open to teach and learn whatever is possible to.
I can share some tips about photography, creative writing, voluntary work, etc. and share some "different" experiences I had in past, I've some funny and embarrassing moments to tell which are a good icebreaking moments LOL
It's a great opportunity to gain more knowledge about other cultures and points of view.
