About Me


To be freed from the ego.


Hello :-)

Descriptions of oneself are usually confusing, egotistic and perhaps useless, since one can be quite different things in different situations/ environments and our self image might not be similar to how we are viewed, so I'd rather not make an advertisement of myself and I'll let you have your own impressions in any kind/ level of contact we may have.

I'm not the biggest and loudest talker but yes I enjoy communication. Moreover, though I do have my set of appreciated values, I try not to be hypocritical, demagogic, artificial or delusional about them.

I'm a bit of a weirdo you see, sometimes misread, but I'm open to being cordial, friendly and share life with people and this is why I'm here. If you think we have something in common or that differences make for a nice contrast, contact me.


Live in the moment, timelessly. Flow.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Keeping people company when they visit the city; giving them tips; getting to know those people; attending local meetings.


Been hosted in São Paulo in 2007, Porto Alegre, Florianópolis and Curitiba in 2009. Made Brazilian and foreign friends who were visiting or living in the city. Hosted four times since January 2009. Plus I have attended local meetings in Brasília.


Spirituality in general Healthily questioning life, myself and society and moving in non-obsessive change Music Humour Physical activity Psychology Sociology Ecology Healthy and nature-oriented habits Being of service to the world somehow

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Not necessarily the most amazing thing, but at least a very significant one: the view of Rio de Janeiro from the Corcovado. I felt what a breathtaking view really is. It's amazing how the juggernaut-rocks, the green, the sea, the sky and the urban constructs look so beautiful and harmonic together. Definitely breath taking and thrilling. You almost can feel the city as a living being.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd rather not expect to teach or learn anything. It is rather a process of self discovery and then external discovery but if anything has to be taught, learned, shared, whatever, it will happen naturally...Or maybe also there is a lot that we'd rather "unlearn" and let go of?!
