About Me


following the thread of life


I am a free expression of an energetic force of love, living with integrity to create the world I want to see. I feel my time here on earth is important. I am part of a sustainable community project in Portugal with the goal of recognizing our role as creators of earth and taking the initiative to change ourselves. I enjoy adventures of all kinds as well as most things creative, like making music, fixing school buses, or building chicken houses. I like to find out what people are all about and love conversation on the big picture of life. I will probably wash your dishes while you aren't looking.


I think we are living in the most exciting time of mankind: we are awakening consciously to the interconnection of all things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I support the community aspect of CS, its more than just a place to stay.. its about creating a world where there are no strangers, just people.


I've hitch-surfed my way from Lisbon to Oslo roundtrip, and couldn't be more grateful for the wonderful people I've met and the amazing experiences! Now I am having a great time hosting people in Brooklyn.
