About Me

Enjoying and living Brazil (and South America) while finishing my master's degree!


I think I can say that I'm a laid-back person who enjoys life, travelling, meeting new people, good conversations and learning new things.

I love change, I hate status quo or that feeling you get when you're caught up in a routine. So I do everything to avoid it!

I am an artist, a singer, a dancer, a linguist, a globe-trotter.

I am Canadian, Cameroonian, Senegalese, Mexican, Spanish, Brazilian...

I am honest and straight-forward, sometimes a little too much!

If I could, I would visit all countries in Latin America.

I love ice cream, good movies, sleeping, laughing, dancing, and that exciting feeling of being in a new place and not knowing exactly where I'm going.

I love sharing my music through the gifts God gave me... But I also get shy about it sometimes, maybe it's false modesty, I don't know...

I love hugs! I think it's the most warm and human way of saying Hello, Goodbye, Thank You, Nice to meet you...

I am Christian (Catholic) but I love and respect all philosophies and ways of life. I like to have good, respectful, conversations about that aspect.

I hate any kind of waste (time, food, money...) and love and admire any intiative including recycling and alternative lifestyle and travelling options, as opposed to the consumption world we live in, even though there's no getting around it (unless you live in a hut in some hidden forest, of course)!


CARPE DIEM (Seize the day... Life is too short!)

I believe that my word is one the most valuable things that I can give to someone, so when I do give it, I try my very best to honor it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately, right now I can't host, but I love going to meetings when I can, and have one-on-ones with other CSers.


I've surfed couches in:

-Puebla, Mexico (First experience, terriffic enough to convert me to CouchSurfism)
-Zacatecas, Mexico
-Toledo, Spain
-Curitiba, Brazil

I've hosted once while living in Puebla, Mexico.

I've been to meetings in Puebla, Montreal, and Florianopolis (where I currently live).

I've met Couch Surfers in lots of cities and countries!
