About Me

I'm a aspiring Artist Manager and Music Industry professional. I moved from Portugal to Orlando in November 2014 to follow my dream and get a degree on Music Business at Full Sail University. I'm now planning on moving to LA and secure a job there in the industry.
I love to cook, watch my soccer team play, practice sports, and share moments with who is around me. I try to live life the most positive way that I can, and share that energy with the ones around me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to travel and meet new people. Staying on their couch will be probably the best way to connect with them.
Also, I'm a college student with an enormous debt, trying to make it in a big industry. I don't have many funds, so helping the host on anything would be more than satisfying for me. I can help you on a lot of stuff.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a huge fan of Reggae, Dancehall, Grime, Hip-Hop, R&B, Kuduro, Kizomba, and Funana.

My favorite book is "All You Need to Know About the Music Industry".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In Indonesia for a month and got lost in the jungle of Sumatra looking for waves. Lost my contact with my friends, got into a bike crash, and couldn't find the way to the surf camp. When I got there, I stopped the bike, and I fainted.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a huge advocate of DESTINY. Everything happens for a reason. You are aligned to make certain things happen in your life, so then others flourish in front of you. Life is all about sharing emotions with each other, and that's why I love music so much. Music is the greatest vehicle for that. You can hear the person's voice and the rest of the sounds creating an environment and a vibe around what they are trying to portrait. If you know that you make your decisions based on your calls, you know that you are doing life by yourself. That's what life is all about, being sure that you are confident enough about your moves.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share my hands. I will be down to help on cooking, cleaning, repair, computers, ... anything that I can help, I will. Also, if there's help needed on a more professional level, I will be ready to do it.
