About Me


Learn as much as I can


I love different languages and cultures. My dream is to become a Brazilian diplomat, so I can work and experience the international environment I love.
While I´m not there yet, I just try to travel as much as I can.
I was born in Manaus, a big city in the heart of the Amazon, and I moved to Rio in 2012 to study for the diplomatic career. Since it´s so hard to get in "diplomat school" (Instituto Rio Branco), I came back to Manaus in 2015.
I love showing people around! I would love to be a tourist guide, if it paid decent money here in Brazil :P


There is always something to learn from every person, place and situation.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted people in Manaus and in Rio.
I have been hosted in Brazil, USA and Canada.
I have participated in meetings in different cities, including the 1st PanAmerican Meeting in Rio in 2009 and some National Meetings.
I promoted meetings and tours in Manaus while I was the local group's moderator.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Celebrated new year (2010) on Copacabana beach in Rio with about 500 CSrs from all over the world

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a lot of things about where I live and about Brazil in general, I could definitely teach you something about my country ;)
I used to be a language teacher, so if you are interested in learning portuguese, I'm also your guy!
