About Me

I've been living in Gainesville for four years with my wife and two kids (4yo girl and 7yo boy). My kids are super curious about visitors and to get to know them (and show off what they know, lol). Currently I work from home, spending the days in my garage getting my hands dirty with clay.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing was one the most personal enriching things I have ever done in my life. Through the years I made countless friends, many of which are close ones, besides giving me unique perspectives on other cultures and life circumstances through the close contact it help happen with people from all walks of life, from all over the world.
