About Me


Making the dream became true: travelling around the world since August 2014!!!!


Meet interesting people and having new experiences, that's all life is about.
Travel is a way to do this better.
I'm crazy about all kind of nature, desert beaches, beautiful landscapes and cultures different from mine, because I think travel is first of all to take and see the world from the perspective of others.
I like to enjoy the day, walk a lot, camping, biking and experiencing more extreme sports. I also like partying, drinking and dancing... and of course, always in good company.


Life is short and we never now when it ends, so enjoy every moment and make sure you are doing the right thing with your own life. And for good vibes and a good karma, always give your best to people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host CSurfers at my place in São Paulo when I'm not travelling and take people around the city when I'm not working.
When travelling around, I try to stay with local people.


My first experience like a CSurfer was incredible, I was travelling around Greece in 2013 and a very nice guy hosted me in Zakynthos. I loved the experience and started to host people in my home too.
Since I started travelling the world, I've been surfing and meeting amazing people.
