About Me


Showing people around Montreal (if i have time..! )


I work as a freelance web designer.

People say Im: -friendly -dynamic -adventurous -outgoing -direct -authenthic


Traveling makes me stay alive. I love traveling, discovering other cultures, other ways to live. See life from another point of view. And I feel I have to do it now, now that I don't have any responsibilities.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have been hosted several times in Europe, in New Zealand and Australia. I was also very active in the CS Community in Bali.

Now i am now back home in Montreal and I am looking forward to give back to the community.


I surfed a lot, everywhere around the world: - Spain (4 hosts) - France (5 hosts) - Mexico (1 host) - Australia (3 hosts, 2 of them a few weeks!) - New Zealand (5 hosts, once on a dairy farm) - Indonesia (2 hosts) - Malaysia (1 host) - Brazil (2 host) - Florida (1 host = BOAT!) - Scotland (1 host)

Unfortunately i only hosted people 5 times (i prefer not hosting than not having time for my guests)


I love to do :-traveling-diving-white water canoeing-hiking-dancing (salsa, swing, fora, etc)- learn new languages (now portugues)-cooking (love cooking for my hosts)-web design.. and try new things!
