About Me


My mission is to know more people and places in the world as possible. I love know different cultures, people, ideas, places and we need to realize how big and fantastic is the world we live in. And I like to write about that.


I'm a person who likes to know different people and places. I like to be a backpacker and a hitchhiker, and talk to everbybody a lot. I'm very talkative and easygoing. Sometimes, I'm shy and quiet.
I like to practice sports, ride bike, run, meditate, and read books, especially literary books. And many times I use to be a gret bum, and sit down under a tree to do nothing. I love to write non-fiction and I have projects on reporting and writing about hitchhikers and travels. I'm very interested in learning about human behavior, psychology and anthropology.


Travel, travel, travel. To live is not necessary, to travel is necessary. It's necessary to know the differences, to expand the limits that our mind like to create, to see how big is the world, and to check how good can be the place we live in. It's good to miss people you like, it's good to come back and to change, always. It's good to discover the unknown, the unknown that always scares the humans. Because this is one of the few certainties in life for me: everything is always changing

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd like to contribute by hosting people at my home. For me it is rewarding to give a couch for travelers and know many people. I live with my girlfriend and we do love to host surfers. Sometimes I'll be traveling, and I hope find hosts and know different people around the world.


Until now, I surfed around Brazil and hosted people from different countries. For me, couchsurfing have been a fantastic way to know world, to know the diversity. So, all my experiences were very rewarding. Now, I moved from Curitiba (south of country) to Joao Pessoa (northeast). Brazil is big as a continent, so now I'm living in a rich and different culture compared with Curitiba It's been wonderful.
