"Artsy, Friendly and Wierd" was my friend's response when i asked him how he would describe me in three words. I guess it`s fairly accurate.
Born in Salvador, lived in Rio de Janeiro, Luanda, London, Edinburgh, and currently back in Rio.
I'm a creative type at the service of ideas that conspire to evolve how we can relate to the world and to each other. I believe in exponential impact trough the power of communication, design, facilitation and community building. Hence, i LOVE Couchsurfing.
Back in rio i have a design & video company called Estudio Pira (www.estudiopira.com), another called Fácil (Creative Consultancy, Facilitation) and im a conspirator at Catete92, an open collaborative house.
Forget ideologies. Lets dance
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've joined the community in May 2010 and im just amazed at how many incredible people i`ve managed to meet so far, both hosting and surfing.
visited 17 states (7.55%).
I`ve stopped compiling lists of places and nationalities i`ve surfed/hosted with cause its just been far too many. And all of them were awesome.
Bunch of random stuff. Curiosity does take me to strange, strange places.
I'm generally interested in all sorts of art-related, science-related and spiritually charged stuff. And then i regurgitate some arty stuff myself. (if u wanna see some of that, here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ggatz )
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies. Too many! Random few from the top of the head: Waking Life, Amelie, Before Sunrise, After Sunset, V for Vendetta, Juno, Network, Blueberry, 2001 Space Odyssey, Bicycles of Belleville, Holy Mountain, Fight Club, Wings of Desire, Into the Wild, I'm not there...among many others (would take all day to fill this up). Documentaries include The Take, The corporation, Zeitgeist, Sukhavati, The Power of Myth, End of Suburbia, The story of Stuff...list goes on.
Music. Eclectic. Electric. Generally quite tolerant.
Books. Lots. Art books, Philosophy, Fiction, Independent comics, Graphic novels.
Teach, Learn, Share
Lets see...i can share some tips on drawing, how to make a sketchbook, prepare a caipirinha (brazilian drink), some computer geeky shit, and how to get yourself smashed into pieces (oh yeh).
I still have to learn how to ride a bike (properly)
