About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to finish the PhD in Engeneering and then make a long surf trip to Hawaii, Peru, Australia and Indonesien...

ABOUT ME

I am a quiet guy and try to be the best I can with everything and everyone, because I believe that life returns to us what we do to others... I´ve traveled a lot and expect to travel much more. At the moment I am a PhD stundent in Managament Engeneering and working with research at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE). I live in Recife with my parents, but every weekend I go to the beach of Porto de Galinhas (elected several times as the most beautiful beach of Brazil). That´s where I can host people, because I have a small house there with 2 bedrooms. I love to meet new people, to know new cultures and to practice my english and german. I am eco conscient, so if you wanna visit my city, be kind with the nature here. Don´t throw waste at the beach or the street, as I´ve already seen a lot of tourists doing. I like polite people. I don´t like people that think my home is a hostel, that make things dirty and don´t clean. Finally, If you read my profile, please write that at the end of your couchrequest: that is the way it should be, all together in harmony.

PHILOSOPHY

I go after what I want, not afraid of letting me down! I think that nothing comes for mercy or pity... We gotta act!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed a couch in Lisbon, Portugal in a house of two brazilian girls and the couch surfing was the best thing of this travel. I also surfed a couch in Köln (Germany), and in Curitiba and Bento Gonçalves (Brazil). I´ve already hosted 2 girls from France, two girls from the USA and a guy from Russia in Porto de Galinhas.

Interests

traveling, surfing (that is the thing I like most), going out, hanging out with friends, dancing... love the beach!

Music, Movies & Books

I love music, specially the brazilian ones. International music: sublime, bob marley, janes joplin, the beach boys, the beatles, skatalites, the slackers, jack johson, guns n´ roses and a lot of others...
