About Me

I´m a 32 years old Brazilian, Engineer and Managing Director of a Cape Town-based startup in South Africa.

Build a life that really is worthwhile for you. Be ambitious (but not greedy) to achieve this goal.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had my first experience of CouchSurfing in Poland in 2012 and it was amazing.

It was just one of the best things I ever made. The trips i made by CouchSurfing were the greatest experiences in traveling that i had in my life.


I love entrepreneurship, business and tech stuff related. Also i love to ride my motorcycle, read good books, draw, watch good movies and make friendships around the world.

I´m kinda workaholic, so i try to use CS as a good alternative to "unplug".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Decided to live by myself when i was 17 years old. I literally ran away from home and i moved to south of Brazil. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. because it helped myself become an independent person and give value to the right things.
