About Me


To exchange knowledge and be a good father to my daughter.


I was born in Portugal but spent part of my early years of childhood traveling with my parents trough Africa and South Africa .

I guess my friends can define me as someone who likes to have them around to share histories. I have a great family in Portugal , and a very solid group of friends. I am a people´s person that enjoys the company of others, but I also like to live in my shell and enjoy the comfort of being alone at times. When I am by myself other then doing my regular professional as an art director for Tv animation, or being busy with other activities, I occupy my time with comic books, sports, photography , cinema, dance, and music concerts. I like to chill around good food as any Mediterranean individual although I am not much of a chef.

I can describe myself as a easy going , calm and peaceful individual. A cultivated, like minded person with a sharp sense of observation and a creative soul that always tries to see the best in people.


I am a positive, romantic and energetic person. My personal philosophy is close to these three aspects of my personality.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to participate in couch surfing experience to meet people along the road and to exchange thoughts, ideas, and points of view that can turn into interesting conversations or common projects. I am not currently hosting but I can nevertheless be a great contact to show Lisbon around.


I don't have any experience of couchsurfing.


Other than the ones I have mentioned before, I like to travel and meet people with a genuine personality, and passionate energy.
