About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discovering the world, experiencing other cultures, exploring different places and making friends during the process.

ABOUT ME

I suggest you to read what my previous guests and hosts have to say about me, instead of reading whatever I could tell you. ;)

PHILOSOPHY

I feel part of the earth. Despite being a citzen from any country, despite being part of a specifc culture, I feel much more part of our planet than of anything else, I'm citzen of the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a lot into experiencing other cultures, exploring different places and making friends all over. In that sense, I think couchsurf provides us a perfect tool, a great opportunity to get to know the locals, to learn from them abou the local culture/history/issues, etc... This is how I try to maxime my experiences everywhere I go.

Interests

History, Languages, Food, Photography , Cinema, MPB - Brazilian Popular music, International Rock Bands, E-MUSIC (A lot of stuff...), Art in general & Water Sports.
