About Me


Move on with my life. New house, new job. New travels!


It's hard to tell "All about me" in just few words here. So I will just say Im a person ready to explore everything life has to show me. I want more of everything and Im looking for ways of doing it. That's why Im on CS, btw.


Im going through a great process of change, getting to know myself and others. Not sure I will ever have a complete answer for this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Back in 2010 I discovered a passion for traveling that has haunted me since then, making staying at one place and not traveling feel like a torturous prison. And CS community was a big part of it, not just as a powerful tool for traveling - either by having a place to crash or someone to talk to about the places I'm going - and also sharing a little bit of my hometown when we get visitors.

I have also made lifelong friendships with other local CSers and our great meetings, Invasions and Nationals!


Surfed in a lot of places both in USA and in Brazil! Met CSers just to hang out both while traveling around in USA and in Connecticut, where I lived for 2 years! Back in Brazil, I try to go to as many meetings we have in my town and also neighboring towns, but also met CSers when I visited Rio, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Uberlândia, Porto Alegre and Brasília!! Always amazing experiences!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Leaving everything behind in Brazil and moving to USA has been the most amazing thing I've ever done. Studying abroad and having the opportunity to get to know different people and places is a priceless experience I will treasure forever. Can't wait to be able to go to Europe and Asia sometime soon and see even more of the world!

Teach, Learn, Share

Sadly, nobody becomes a teacher because he or she wants to get rich... So teaching is something you need to be passionate about to the point of doing it for free if you have to. And the only thing I love more than teaching it learning.
