About Me


Cross the boundaries of human experience


I am a very positive, sociable and open-minded person. I live in London and am attempting to carve a place for me in Social Impact and Enterpreneurship involving Latin people living here.

In previous lives, I was a corporate lawyer in the City, an UNHCR volunteer in Africa and a student union leader in my home state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I am laid-back but responsible and absolutely mad about getting to know new cultures, cuisine, music and making new friends.

It doesn't take much to please me, some good talk with a can of beer is enough. Used to be into skate and surfing, but too cold and windy for that in England :).


Johnny Walker's keep on moving, even though I prefer Jack Daniels.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Had the best time of my life couchsurfing in Europe for 3 months not long after moving into the old continent.

It shows that despite all the talk of building walls (YES - that's for Drump) to separate people there is still some hope.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacking in Farc Guerilla areas between Venezuela and Colombia with my mum. Making a hotel out of a car parked in a public square while in Portugal for two days. Being stopped by the Basque Anti-terrorist police while stupidly going round a round-about for many times in front of the Basque police dep. while waiting for a friend to come pick me up.
