About Me


Welcoming every day with a smile :)


NOTICE: I moved back to Italy in order to enroll to university. For a while I will stay here and I don't know when I will go back to Canada. So please consider it if you are looking for a couch in Vancouver. Unfortunately, I can't help you. However, please send to me and email if you are visiting Vancouver and you want information about spots to visit!

Nowadays I am living in a shared house with other students in the Italian city of Trento. I will be glad to host you there. Please look for the user ID "MAGAFE", I manage the hosting in Trento directly from that shared profile with the other students living in that house.

I went to Canada in order to study English but I've been surprised by living in a multicultural community. I would like to meet more people from different countries and share experiences.

Nowadays I am studying in the charming city of Trento, Italy. I had the possibility to live and study in South Korean and Thailand, it was a great experience that changed my view of the world.


Lifelong learning.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I had to leave Canada for a while. Now I am living in the Italian city of Trento, where I study in the local university.

I hope to find my own place ASAP, so finally I can offer a shelter for travellers. CS community has given me a lot, I really wish to give something back one day.


I hosted some international friends at my home in Italy before I met CS, so I think I'm totally into the CS spirit!
I travelled in Korea and US, and CS helped me to find a lot of shelters and meet incredible people. I had great experiences, also I had fun to meet new friends.


I love gardening and cooking: let's share recipes and gardening suggestions!
Also I like indie movies, Icelandic music, reading news from around the world.
I love photograph and shoot pictures, especially portrait.
Other interests: graphic art and graphic novels, modern and contemporary art, industrial design, swimming and walking.

Music, Movies & Books

I am very eclectic when I choose something. I try to listen, watch and read as much as is possible.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Some whales played with me and diving around when I was in a tiny tiny boat near Victoria. Oh, I have never seen so huge teeth. They totally showered me with they blowhole.

I ate blowfish in Daegu (with two charming girls). It was delicious and I am still here!

I had hilarious conversations with drunk salarymen in Tokyo's underground bars.

Memphis's CS ambassador organized a Tennessee's traditional BBQ to celebrate CS birthday. I participated with a lot of other people who meet there for the first time, even they live in the same city!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to do an origami paper crane.
