To learn more about the world through travel and to help others do the same
I am a big fan of sports and other competitive games such as chess. I am also increasingly fascinated by software and web development. I am also an amateur guitarist and drummer who loves Latin music and percussion in particular.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted a few people and have also had the pleasure of showing a few people around our beautiful island. I am always up for a beer with someone who is just passing through or willing to help those who may need a little guidance on what to do.
I haven't couchsurfed myself. However I have been host and it's been a pleasure so far. I hope to visit Latin America and India in the next few years so that it would be great to have made some good friends through CS.
I have a pretty wide range of hobbies. Latin music and dancing (merengue, salsa, kizomba). I also enjoy a good political debate here and there. I play lots of chess in my free time and also watch a lot of football. Especially, when Brazil is playing.
