About Me


I aim to be a great listener and learner to what people around the world have to say and teach.


This is a very peculiar topic. Self-knowledge may be the greatest stimulus to pack my stuff and reach new places. I aim to do that by listening and learning what people may have to say about their lives, profession, skills, fears, passions. Diversity! That is what makes the world so interesting. My mind keeps on telling me that I carry the world inside of me, but I am reluctant. Traveling allows me to open my mind, appreciate and understand the other.


My personal philosophy may sound too simple but it's consequences shapes who I am. I believe that there is something very unique on me that makes me perceive the world differently. The result is startling! Everything happening in the present time affects me somehow. The leaf falling, the clouds moving, the wind blowing, the car horn. It is a unending process, sometimes wearing, sometimes exciting! Traveling is how I channel it in a positive way.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


In every place I have visited I found hospitality and humanity. I want to give back to the world. If I ever get the chance to host someone, I'll give my best to help them explore everything around.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Every trip I made, was in their particularity, an amazing thing in my life. The simples things usually are the things that most interest me.

Teach, Learn, Share

I look forward to find people interested on bookbinding and graphic design. I would like to share this interest with them and, together, improve our skills. However... I feel like I have not found what I want to do for the rest of my life, and I might never find it! Learning is exciting. I'm curious, you must know that!
