About Me

I'm a Brazilian Chemical Engineer who got tired of the corporate life behind a desk and decided to backpack around the world. I spent 8 months in Asia, 2 months in Australia, now I'm back in Brazil!

I'm a very easygoing, peaceful and friendly person who loves to meet interesting people and hear their histories over a good beer or wine.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've travelled through many countries in Europe, South America and Asia/Pacific. In most of them I've used Couch Surfing and I always host people when I can.


Traveling, hiking, cooking, motorcycle riding, singing, meeting people.

Music, Movies, and Books

- Movies: SciFi, good comedies and horror movies;

- Music: Rock n' roll, Grunge, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
