About Me


Meet cariocas and discover Rio. Play music with Damas de Ferro.


I love people and social situations most of all. I'd choose to just hang out with people over being alone any day. I am a learner, curious and reciprocating. I love to make people feel special. Things I enjoy: smiles, laughing, cycling, swimming, hiking, canoe camping, foreign films and documentaries, all food and all spirits, gardening, stencil art and graffiti, chocolate, the world!


Tudo vale a pena quando a alma nao e pequena - Fernando Pessoa
Everything has worth when your soul is not small. (Literal translation)
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've just gotten involved with the intention of surfing and meeting some people for upcoming summer travel and I am wowed by all your amazing e-candor. I have always tried putting a friendly face out to strangers on the streets but this blows me away.


I'm a CS newbie thus far.


Playing music! Playing music at the Honk! Festival next weekend in Somerville!
