About Me

I am a very quiet person and open minded. I love the arts in general, especially cinema, literature, music and photography. I really enjoy talking and learning about other cultures and different perspectives of life. I love to play the guitar and sing with friends. Have some good beers and whenever possible to celebrate every moment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it is through the exchange of life experiences and dialogue with other cultural perspectives that we can get to know who we are. And this experience is fundamental.


I want to be able to help and share the knowledge I have about my city, my culture and my country. I'm also interested in improving my foreign language and my cultural knowledge.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have no artistic restrictions. I like every expression of art that makes me not only reflect but also provide me pleasure and well-being. About the music, I listen from Western classical music to afrobeat. Particularly, I like much of what is produced in my state (Pernambuco), especially coming from popular culture: maracatu, frevo, mangue beat, côco, ciranda, baião, MPB, etc. I've had a rock band, but currently, I don't play anymore. I love Latin cinema (e.g. Solanas, Getino, Birri, Sanjines, Campanella, Puenzo, Alea, Trapero, Littin, Rocha, Santos, Sganzerla, Diegues, Hirzsman, Andrade, Saraceni, Muylaert, Bianchi, Reichenbach, Coutinho, Meirelles, Salles, Babenco, Furtado, Bressane, Mendonça Filho, Ainouz, Masagão, Guerra, etc), African cinema (Sembène, Mambéty, Tounré, Hondo, Cissé, Haroun, Sissoko, Traoré, Kouyaté, Ganga, Bouchareb, Labaki, Gómez, Chahine, Ouedraogo, Kaboré, Diawara, Lakhdar-Hamina, Nacro, Duparc, Bekolo, Gomis, Gei Ramaka, etc), Asian cinema (Kurosawa, Ozu, Hsiao-Hsien, Lee, Mizoguchi, Ray, Kiarostami, Nair, Riklis, Panahi, Abu-Assad, Folman, Shani, Burnat, etc), European cinema (Wenders, Godard, Fellini, Bertolucci, Bergman, Buñel, Herzog, Lang, Truffaut, Haneke, Chaplin, Antonioni, Wilder, Rosselini, Costa-Gavras, Rouch, Kieslowski, Resnais, Marker, Sica, etc).

My favourite books are "Los Premios" by Julio Cortazar, "The Catcher in the Rye" by JD Salinger, "All poetry" by Paulo Leminski, "Things Fall Apart" by Chinua Achebe.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To travel!

Teach, Learn, Share

We all have much to teach, learn and share. And that can only happen at that meeting that breaks our common place, our "given" as natural. However, this confrontation, this suspension does not serve to make us lost but, rather, to indicate the paths from the gaze of the other, that lead us to us.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Knowledge, stories, culture, food, information, customs, music, cultural performances, sightseeing and my friendship.

Countries I’ve Visited

Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Portugal, Uruguay

Countries I’ve Lived In

Argentina, Brazil, Germany
