About Me

I am a portuguese traveler and adventurous guy from the beautiful city of Lisbon. I think my city is the best place on earth, but I am looking to see other realities, landscapes, and beautiful like-minded people. In the last months, I am feeling like being useful in something, that I can learn with at the same time.

I am a nature and eco live style lover. I am a sports lover: mountain bike, kayak, rowing and jogging. I love to travel and stay in one single place to enjoy time, moments and meet people. I am very curious about learning eco-sustainable ways of living, permaculture and bio-agriculture in general.

I am looking to travel, cultural exchange, language exchange, to know more about permaculture and bio agriculture, to learn about renewable energies and sustainable lifesyles, to learn more about building with my own hands and being auto-sufficient, and to meet interesting people.

My main work experience is inside the music and events industry in Portugal and the UK. I work as DJ, sound technician and events organizer. Together with my crew in Lisbon, we started a project of underground, intimate and cozy secret parties in different abandoned places in Lisbon. After 2 years, it became an underground art and music movement renowned internationally, bringing a fresh air to the events and music local scene :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am here, because I think Couchsurfing is one of the best ways of travelling and meet interesting new people.
I have been using Couchsurfing since 2015 hosting travellers, using the 'couch' when I am travelling, and inviting new people for my events in Lisbon. It's been working very well, and I actually did very good friends here :)
