About Me


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


I work as a freelance web designer.

People say Im:


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,jive)- learn new languages (now portugues)-cooking (love cooking for my hosts)-web design.. and try new things!
