About Me


I'm a software developer with passion for Free Software, who enjoys dancing cuban salsa, and who loves art in general (specially movies, plays and novels). Trying to re-create myself through the learned things in my travels of the past years.


Break the paradigms and status quo, think out of the box, free thinker-wannabe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting people from time to time, meeting foreigners or locals.


These days I use it mostly for joining locals and get to know what's happening in every city I visit. And when I'm at 'home', mostly host from time to time, depending on my tasks.


Writing, reading, dancing (salsa, basically), listening to some music (jazz, tango, bolero and bossa nova). Art in general; technology; I love to have long conversations where I get to know you and your ideas, and we can exchange points of view.
