About Me


Palliating - making things less serious


I enjoy life,
In all its forms.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


One of the greats was couch-surfing in small-town Pichilemu, on the coast of Chile, home of a great wave, and ever more fantastic humans. My hosts were people who made music with their mouths, loved deeply and breathed in the sun each day, danced with their whole bodies. It was like coming home to my best friends.


I love building things with my hands.
and Capoeira, and playing music,
walking in unbelievable landscapes,
pretty stones.
