About Me


tread all the possible paths so that we will reach some impossible maths


Mom says that I'm a good boy. (Un)fortunately I can't say much about that... I'm suspicious to do it! ;]


"A person needs a little madness, or else they never dare cut the rope and be free."

"Every perfect traveler always creates the country where he travels."
(Nikos Kazantzakis)

"A man of knowledge chooses a path with a heart and follows it and then he looks and rejoices and laughs and then he sees and knows."
(Carlos Castaneda)

"Quem dança da vida não cansa."
(eu mesmo)



A lover of the easy, simple and plain beauty of people and things.

I live in struggle for social and spiritual changes. Nowadays, I participate of a group that is promoting the estabilishment of a self-sustainable community in the country side. I've been also taking part in movements of conection between consumers and farmers, building fair conditions of market and ecological conditions of production.

I am also seeking for a wider selfconsciousness, practicing Yoga and Aiki-Do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Since I've got in contact with CS, I could increase a lot my instinct of friendship, returning to my teenager times (no internet at all!) and spreading the idea of true and REAL connection (out of the virtual social networks), meeting a lot of amazing people, hosting a bunch of other ones, always sharing my experiences with them.The local CS community of Rio was a quite fertile field to develop this idea and I try to give the best I can, organizing activities and helping travellers to explore this crazy city.

An interview about Couchsurfing aired on brazilian TV.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most incredible thing I could ever see is that every day I can see every day born and falls, and then born again.

The most incredible thing I've done is to live these days, always in a different way.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to share some Yôga practice (although I'm just a student); how to make handmade chocolate directly from cacao beans, how to make coconut oil, peanut butter and other experiments; information about the vegetarian and organic stuffs in Rio; have a good knowledge about lots of unusual circuits which I can show people; dance some samba; all kind of popular (really popular, not fake stuff for "gringos") gastronomic and artistic places; natural beauties from Rio (even the "hidden" ones); diferent cuisine experiencies.

Whatever you can share with me it will be great if besides that we can have some true moments.
