About Me


Enjoy life! meet nice people, learn new cultures and evolve spiritually


I'm very friendly and talkative.
I like living simple, being in contact with nature and spending the day doing a lot of sports.
I love nature, trips with friends, laughing and having nice conversations, taking nice pics and whenever I get into some adventure!!


You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Making new friends, exchanging knowledge and experiences


I always recieve friends and family to stay for some time at home but never had some surfers in my couch. I have been surfing in Uruguay (Punta del Diablo) and Argentina (Mendoza).
Also I've been travelling from Miami to Key West with some couchsurfers.


Taking a lot of photos of surf!
I like to practice yoga and meditation, I play soccer sometimes and I love surfing, water spots in general.
I like watching good films, listen to good and old music, dancing and being in contact with nature is the thing I love most.
I am passionate about animals, all kind of!
I love try new and exotic food =] and also preparing some nice meals from Brazil.

Music, Movies, and Books

Brazilian popular music, blues, rock and reggae, and...the sound of the waves breaking in the shore!
The movie I've recently watched is Motorcycle Diaries (Diarios de Motocicleta).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been in Bahia state and I saw a 5meter shark whale that has runned ashore unfortunately, but it was a pretty exciting experience. In this trip to Bahia I almost drowned trying to cross a river mouth swimming.
I have made a nice trip practically by bus from Brazil to Chile and back!
In Uruguay I got scared with scorpios on my tent!
I have crossed the Andes mountains to go to Santiago by bus.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you: yoga asanas, surfing, skting, some french/portuguese words, anything about the oceans or climate, and something I've recently learned about photos.
I want to learn more about how to make a good trip!
