About Me


Explore Brazil, find the beauty


I was born under a desert sun, I came up in a garage of notes and dreams, and found my way in a district. I like my shorts short, my pants tight, and my wallet even tighter. I also wear silly glasses, I'm pretty great at math, and I'm excited to get to know Brazil.


I think people are given opportunities everyday to experience life. It is each persons choice how they respond to what is presented in front of them. With this in mind, we all have the ability to create/destroy, love/hate and share/take.

While I travel and observer others living everyday it is a great reminder of the insignificance and importance of each person. Life goes on without you but life is nothing without you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new to the couch surfing community. I'm interested in learning more and sharing with others.


First timer


Hmmm... I like many things. Like music and crude forms of art. I like to play volleyball and ride my bike. Computers (and computer science) interest me very much for fun as well as a career (techno-ist).

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies are great. Wes Anderson.

Music is amazing. Not sure what to list but I enjoy many types of music including Rock, Indie, Hip Hop, Electronic, Samba (seu jorge), Alt-country, and Rod Stewart.

Books are wonderful. I just started reading a few Sci-Fi books and found that I like them quite a bit. I used to think Sci-Fi was only for serious geeks but I think many of the best Sci-Fi novels should be read by more people. Start with Ender's Game. Great book for anyone to read.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

El Camino de Santiago de Compastela. ¡Fue increíble!
