About Me


Learning Sight Reading and Portuguese.


I am here now.


Mirror in my moon mind makes mesmerized moments mellow melting mother masters the mountains many.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My intention is to give myself in entirety to each and every moment. Absolute surrender to reality in its most honest form; washing dishes, dancing hysterically, staring down a stranger while drooling ecstatically.

The only truth of love is.


People have been very generous to me in the past, in all of my travels. I truly enjoy cooking delicious food with/for strangers and staying up late into the night drinking tea and telling stories. I have learned so much from hosting different `surfers and appreciate infinitely those who have hosted me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Every moment is the explosive love and cataclysmic truth of the simple silence of being.

I picked up radio frequencies in my head one time while meditating on a moving freight train.

Teach, Learn, Share

We are all here to enable each other to see in honesty plain and simply what we are given and have to give.Love lives in threads within without stitching lines and tying down. Weaves without friction gives the whole a little light of difference to grin and wink by.Knowledge to share?-Music (guitar/theory/some keyboard)-Yoga (a few collected asana and prana exorcises) -Movement/Self Defense (Shaolin Based physical freedom)-Language exchange (really most qualified with english)-Cooking (Some Raw foods, veggie dishes, etc...)To learn:-Anything involving movement/energetic cultivation in a free and loving modality-Spiritual Truths (there is at least if not only one in every moment; may such experience inhabit our moments)-anything musical in nature, Drumming, strumming, singing, chanting, toning.The traditions that have sustained me are flame and fuel to share, if we all glow together we can be everywhere.
