About Me

Since 2008 I've been (kind of) working my way around the world. In January 2016 I quit my last job in Brazil and took the Russian Trans-Siberian railway to come to Japan. Currently I am living in a Zen temple (which is also an organic farm) in the mountains of Hyogo prefecture in Japan. In 2015 I self-published a novel inspired on my own travels, which is mostly about (and a tribute to) the great and inspiring people we meet roaming the world.


The simple and beautiful details of life. Cooking. Drinking. Conversations that make you lose track of time. Stories. Stars. Meditation, camping, walking, cycling, hitchhiking, literature, mythology, history, bonfires, hammocks.
