About Me

I'm from Brazil, born and raised in the northeast, but lately based in Rio de Janeiro. I recently moved to Sweden, where I'm not familiar with mostly anything yet, but still really enjoying so far.


Get to know a little bit of the world and gain a wider view of life, make friends in the process.


The more you learn and the more persons you meet, the more you are filled with love for this world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm still starting to, I have friends in couchsurfing, and host for a lot of friends in Rio, outside of couchsurfing...


None yet. Willing to start! (I've been to fun meetings though)


I love sciences, and basically all that involves cells. I also love arts in its most different ways, though I'm not specially talented for anything in this field :/. I'm also very interested in food, love cooking and trying new cuisines. And I can't say no to some wine/beer/whisky on the weekends. I also like swimming and sunny places.

Music, Movies, and Books

Enjoy alternative, indie and classic rock, music from Brazil, jazz, triphop. Love movies and books, of maaany different styles. Currently I'm into non-fiction books and poetry. And into horror movies. But life is full of phases, right?

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess I could teach some brazilian cooking, dancing, portuguese, molecular physiology if someone is interested.. Don't have actually a nice exotic skill to teach, but could share all my general non-skilled knowledge of life. :P
