Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet many different people around the world. Couchsurfing is a really different experience to know other cultures and people, it is a really different trip, you have an opportunity to know things that you would never imagine in a short time in a city, the hosts become friends! That's why I'm here!

Interests

My interests are meeting people, everytime I get to know a person in a different place I have a lot of new things to learn and this is so fantastic and fascinating. I also love arts, photography, and filmmaking.
Traveling for me is an amazing way to improve my photographic eye and that's why I'm always traveling and looking for adventures.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite songs, movies and books change from time to time. I have a list of my favorites, but i like to discover new things but I'm a super fan of Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings.
Nowadays I play at the University of Rio de Janeiro Ukelele Orchestra (UFRJ) and if you are lucky you will see me playing in one of my trips.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't have just one. Everytime I go to a new place, I try to do amazing things and meeting amazing people. This is the most important thing for me in my life!

But I've already done some crazy things like
- crossing Italy in a motorhome with a crazy gipsy guy
- got lost at an island in Croatia with no food or water
- I was invited to drive with a vespa club but I rode a BMW motorcycle instead
- I slept with the refugies in a German train station
- I walked 20 kilometers just to see a lighthouse in the Netherlands
- Spent 3 days without sleeping just to enjoy as much as I could with a friend in Argentina (we got literally crazy)
- I already owned a cupcake shop and I was on TV to talk about it.
- The first videos I made became a short film and it was exhibit in some important film festivals in Brazil.

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe that we can learn things together, it is the richest type of learning. If you come to Brasil, or in Rio de Janeiro I can show you my city, my culture and teach you our customs. I love languages, I can teach you portuguese and english and give you great classes about photography and filmmaking. All kinds of things I have learned until now I can pass it on. I think life is a big share of knowing.

My stories, my happiness and my friendship.
