About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Save enough money to my next trip!

ABOUT ME

I'm a 25-year guy who discovered CS four years ago. I like to show the city to people, and when possible skip all my daily schedule to spend time showing the marvels of Rio de Janeiro and, at the same time, learning about other cultures.

I am a bicycle geek :) Some people know me as a "cycloactivist". I also like computer stuff, always have worked with IT. My main hobby, which mix these two things together, is to make a map of my neighborhood on OpenStreetMap.org, a mix of Wikipedia and Google Maps, with maps created by users.

But don't get scared, I can put the nerd side apart and have some fun partying :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to host people during the holidays, most of the people I've hosted so far are from the Adopt a Guest CS group. I do so because I imagine that if I travel to somewhere around the globe I also might be in need to be hosted, as I don't have a lot of money.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hasn't surfed yet, but have hosted 30+ people from all over the world, please check the references below.

Interests

I am interested in traveling abroad (maybe someday with CouchSurfing! :), cycle around, show my city to people, creating maps with OpenStreetMap and playing Rock Band.

Music, Movies & Books

My music taste is kinda ecletic, ranging from classical music to eletro. Check what I like on my last.fm
