About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live life without limits.

ABOUT ME

Once I feel confortable around someone, I will express everything with no qualms and generally with a smile. I enjoy making jokes about every aspect of life and try not to get too stressed out, even though I live in a very stressful city.

I'm always having new ideas for projects of varying complexity, though very few come to fruition. You could say I'm a procrastinator - I'll work on that later.

PHILOSOPHY

You make your choices and live with the consequences.

Though I am very passionate about everything I try to make practical decisions. Always taking into account the consequences upon myself and to others.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Not that much. Hoping to change that.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Not from the site, but I've hosted a few foreigners and loads of Brazilian friends with very different profiles.

I had a great time showing them around the city. I have also toured with other travelers who did not stay at my place, from different backgrounds and places, including the US, Ireland and Canada.

I really enjoy getting around and exploring with people from out of town. Helps me look at things differently and feel like a tourist myself.

Since I still live with family, I cannot host people. Though I would love to.

Interests

Horse Racing, Photography, Car Races.

Cycling, animals, cars, technology.

History, Politics, even though I'm not very good at neither.

Science in general and amateur Astronomy are also fun.

Music, Movies & Books

I do a mix of mainstream, high-brow and counter culture stuff.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I was about 5 years old my grandfather was dying of cancer. I walked up to his bed and said he looked yellow. His response was "you're very observant" - After I was told this story, nothing compares.

Teach, Learn, Share

Design, Photography, Cinema, Cooking and chopsticks.
