About Me

I am currently studying "Integrated Natural Resource Management" and work part time as an "Android Developer" in Berlin. Before that I have been travelling and living a lot in Latin America - mainly in Mexico, Ecuador, Brazil and Colombia. I think I made my best CS experiences in Brazil where I met amazing people!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's a great way to travel! You will get to know a country by knowing it's people and their culture. I've never had a bad experience on couchsurfing and met so many wonderful and interesting people. I'm so thankful for it!


I love playing the guitar and singing. I used to travel with a Guitalele, a small guitar.
Her name is María Cachaça dos Ventos.
In Mexico I discovered yoga for me. I started with Ashtanga but currently I practice more Vinyasa/Jivamukti.
I'm a beach person. I love everything you can do in the ocean. In Cabo Verde I did the Advanced Open Water Course. Currently I try to surf. I'm not really good at it but I enjoy it so much!!!
When I came to Berlin I started to code. Surprisingly, I realized that I enjoy it a lot and besides work it has become a hobby. I write Android applications in Kotlin and look forward to learn more about Swift and iOs development.
I also started to eat vegan when I came to Berlin and until now I enjoy it a lot. I’m not super strict but I somehow got intolerant to lactose which makes it a lot easier. I’d love to prepare and share a vegan meal while Couchsurfing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

On the Galapagos Islands I had the chance to swim with dolphins, hammerhad sharks and giant mantas. It was incredible!
In Mexico my dream of swimming with whalesharks came true :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Though I found out that I'm not a good teacher I could teach some guitar basics and maybe german, spanish or english.
