About Me


“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”


I'm easy going, fun and helpful. Love making people happy.
Worked in cruiseships for a while, travelled quite a bit, learned the basics for every language I could.
Love to meet new people and remain friends after that.


What goes around, comes around. So I think carefully before interferring with other people's lives.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Thomas Jefferson

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back."
Maya Angelou

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I live in a comfy 2 bedroom apartment with enough extra room for 2 people. However, I have a roommate I need to check with before I accept guests. Also, our families come visit quite often so sometimes the extra beds are theirs.

But I am always available for coffee, drinks, showing people around Rio, giving tips and/or helping anyway I can! ;)


No experience in the CS community yet.
Hoping to go to meetings, surf couches and offer my couch whenever I can.
