About Me

I am an open mind and curious person genuinely interested in learning new things and meeting people.

I am an energetic but also an easy-going person.

I love to live in the present moment and I would love to meet people that feel the same way.

Being a decent human being matters to me. I believe that our actions and the energy we emanate to the universe are what will be around us. I always prefer to see life from a positive perspective, which doesn’t mean fake positiveness.

I have been an entrepreneur almost my whole life in the tech world, which made me get tired of the startup scene and the non-sense capitalism. At the moment, I am transitioning to a more purposeful career. I am creating a design and innovation consultancy for problems that matter.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is about making new friends, having new experiences, and getting to know other cultures.

For me, it is not just about the free couch! Of course, I can't deny that my savings are happy about it. haha

When I stay at someone's house, I would love to hang out, go out and have a good time together :)
(if you have time and want to, of course!)

I love to travel like a local. This way is much more fun than just being a tourist somewhere.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't think I have ever had favorites things.

Indie Rock/Pop, House (...) I am eclectic but probably that is what I listen to the most

I normally watch movies when I go to a theater. At home, I like to watch tv shows.
Last ones: Fleabag, Girls, Sex education, You, Bridgerton, Feel Good, Modern Love, The Marvelous Ms. Maisel, Maid, Crashing, Friends, How I met your mother (...)

Besides technical books, I always read something that is in the New York Times Bestsellers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- I won an idea contest. As an award, I received 200k flight miles. The only sad part is that I spent almost all the miles buying a return flight ticket for my parents for an emergency.
- I learned how to speak German. haha
- In my school, we used to have a game called Gincana in which students and alumni could participate. I would always join the scavenger hunt. During the hunt, we would wear costumes and drive around the city for two days.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Not sure what could be hahaha
But I am always open to share what I know.

And brigadeiro, of course. A typical Brazilian dessert.
