About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover all Continents and Brazilian States until my 40

ABOUT ME

All about me is so much and boring, lets stay with the interesting part.

Some people say that I`m calm, funny and smart. I don't believe in them, you have to meet me to see if it is true, and proof it for me. As you can see in my profile I`m a lit bit Nerd, but I have social life. I love parting, drinking, dancing, and specially know different people, places and cultures.

All I can help you, sure I'm gonna do. Nice to meet you.

PHILOSOPHY

Simple life.
Little actions make great results.
Equilibrium is the key to the continuum movement.
I don`t have any radical views, i.e., religion, political, economical, etc. I have my views, you have your different ones, that the beauty of the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Share part of my life and experience, that's is the real lemma of Couchsurfing.
I had a lot of amazing experiences due to CS, specially meeting people with great heart and good vibes in many corners of the world.
Surfing, Couching, making friends, go to events, give information, talk about everything.
I'm a ex-moderator of Brasilia, but i keep me active in the group, specially organizing the Weekly Meetings and helping with others events. Also I create the Viçosa CS community, city where I lived, studied and worked for 6 years. I love that crazy city.
If you want to send me a Couch Request, send me a nice one, at least comment something that we have in common (this is a good ice breaker, as shows a lit bit of empathy). Read "my home" information, i have some simple rules that you must follow (that I hope that it is in your life rules too)
I have a busy work and schedule, I travel a lot for leisure or work, So I'm not always available to host.
