About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel and discover the beauty of this world, including sharks!

ABOUT ME

I'm a biologist that work with sharks and I'm in love with everything regarding nature! But I also love to admire ancient and modern buildings, and to know new cultures and places!

I'm a diver and a vegan!

I love to make friends and to hang out. You may find my laughter a little awkward, but you're gonna laugh with me ;)

PHILOSOPHY

Since I was a little child I kept telling myself that I wanted to save the world. I know it's a cliche, but I'm trying to do my best to achieve this goal. By this I want save as many living beings as I can, including humans!

Good relationships last forever and I'm really proud of my friend's accomplishments!
It's rewarding to help the others and I try to do as often as possible, so everyone may be little bit happy like me!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The most amazing moments are those when I get to know people. Couchsurfing is fantastic!!

Interests

I love traveling, movies, music, and the ocean...And I also want to meet new people.

Music, Movies & Books

I read a lot of scientific papers everyday, so on my spare time I like to read something lighter, that may distract me and make me laugh (or even cry).
I have a long line of books that I've already bought, but I still didn't have time to read.

When it comes to music, I'm kind of eclectic, because I like pop (Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Madonna), rock (Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden), brazilian pop-rock (Legião Urbana, Paralamas do Sucesso), popular brazilian songs (Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Marisa Monte, Milton Nascimento, Djavan).

I like movies that make me laugh and cry. I also like those that make me think (that I have to keep seated after its end to understand it). And I like movies with some kind of action!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've traveled a lot inside and outside Brazil and I've seen many different cultures, people, richness and poorness. I've learned to respect the humans in all their varieties: heterosexuals and homosexuals, white and black and yellow and orange and blue, religious and atheists, vegans and carnivorous, people with a degree and those without it.

I've already seen forests (Amazon), floods (Pantanal), beaches and sand dunes (Northeast of Brazil), snow in the North and South Hemispheres (Argentina and Canada), classic fall (Netherlands), people eating bizarre stuff (China and Taiwan), Mickey and Minnie (Disney World), sharks underwater (Fernando de Noronha, Brazil).
Unfortunatelly, I've also seen people living in the streets begging for food or clothes, abandoned animals, captive animals...and these things I see everywhere.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to learn and I've recently found out that I also like to teach. I like to listen to what people have to say and then to make a reply. Discussions are always welcome, because you can learn even more than what you're going to say.

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States
