I've finished my PhD in Economics Demography and starting working as research associate at Brown University. I like talking, learning new culture, traveling, nice people around me. I particularly appreciate honesty and people who really like to do good!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've already had experiences hosting people in my place, but just stayed once in a person's place. My first experience couchsurfing another person's house was awsome and the outcome is still to be done (we can make some new friends and learn a lot, though about it?). I also met friends for coffee and ended up meeting a wonderful person, smart and funny, in Bloomington, IN. I expect to host some folks in Providence!
I've already hosted 5 people at home. 2 Brazilians, 2 Americans and 1 Italian. They were great with me and made me feel useful! As a guest, I surfed an American's couch (Raina's, in Providence, RI) and met two other Americans, so far (Al in Providence, RI, and Bradley in Bloomington, IN)
