About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Quit paralysis. Put my feet on the road. Fear less. Live more. Keep breathing.

ABOUT ME

I've recently majored in Information Technology, I've been worked with English teaching for about five years. But now I'm working with Software Development in Vitória, which is the capital of Espirito Santo, my state. (Yeah, it's mine.)
I'm in this for the LOLZ, I guess. No, not really, I'm trying to find out who I am, and I guess meeting other people and learning about them, their cultures and their beliefs is the way to go.
I like reading classic books (specialy English and Russian literature), I listen to many different kinds of music, from Latin music to Death Metal, including classic music, reggae, indie rock, electronic, pop, blue, chiptune, and a bazillion more of stuff.
Hey, just to be sure you read at least a little bit of my profile before couch-requesting me, put Highway Child! somewhere in your message, thanks :]
I plan to either move to another country or becoming a perpetual traveler, I'm saving money while thinking if this is really what I wanna do with my tiny piece of time in this planet.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm not religious, but I respect people's religions and I like to learn about them. I think we're all here to learn with each other, and that this life is ours to create something with it, and I also think that having fun is essential! You know, Live and let live, and "Enjoy the Trip, man"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm spreading the word to my friends who fancy traveling but still haven't found a way to do so. Also Hosting and being Hosted, practicing what I preach, but I still haven't hosted anyone yet, and the trips I planned for myself were flops. But the next one won't! I'm sure of it. :]

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Worked as Portuguese-English interpreter during the visit of a group of Baptist American Teenagers to my city and when two gentlemen from an NGO came to Linhares to learn how families produce coffee in small farms in our region. I haven't traveled a lot yet, so I'm saving this space for the amazing experiences I'll live soon. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm very critical about everything around me, and I normaly can talk people into being like that, not forcing them, but just showing them how great it is to be an individual and to actually have your own thoughts, but that's not that unique... is it? I don't know, you decide. Or we can discuss about it, and maybe have a drink, scratch our heads and learn something in the process.
