About Me

Just a few things about me now:

Living in Niterói but I grew up in Rio. I'm in my last year of university and I play in a band of Irish music.

I'm really open minded, I love getting to know new cultures, stories, people and try any new, odd and unexpected experiences. I use to go out with friends to bars and eventually playing with my band in pubs or parties. For now I'll try to explore more my city, there are a lot of spots I haven't been before that after leaving abroad I feel that I have to go. I can't host at the moment but I'd gladly walk around for some day activities and enjoy some nightlife when it's possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I first heard of CS years ago through some friends, I thought it was incredible, even before any experience, I needed just a few to be sure. The whole idea is something that should be natural and common,

Interests

Music, live music always gets my attention, even kinds of music I'm not that into. After a lot of good surprises having great moments attending to bands I didn`t have expectations, I`m up to anything musically.
Where there's music, life happens deeplier.

Arts in general, I appreciate paintings, I love photography, any performing acts or forms of expressions.

Beer: I really like drinking beer, show me a different one and I'll be happy. I can show you some I like.

Hiking: I'm always up to hike anywhere interesting with more people.

Cooking: I'm curious to be able to try new tastes

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Forming with some friends a band of Irish music in Rio de Janeiro that I'm playing for 5 years now, it's part of my life.

Spontaneously going to an indigenous tribe with a friend and a couchsurfer and spending one night hammocksurfing by an invite of them, also attending their ritual an had a dinner. It was epic!

Living in Ireland for one year.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think I can teach the tin whistle, maybe the Irish flute.

Cooking! I'm enjoying cooking, I could both teach the little I know or share the kitchen trying to cook any new and bold experiment with anyone also interested.
