About Me


Become a salsa dancing scientist


I'm a world traveler. I've lived in Spain (Las Palmas, Madrid, Cádiz, Málaga, Cartagena), in the United States (New Jersey), and in France (Montpellier). All that traveling messed with my world perspective in a good way. Being a citizen of nowhere let me choose the culture that best suited me.

I'm doing a PhD in computational biology (working in a virology lab). Science is awesome. Currently, I'm crazy about biology, salsa, languages and flamenco.


Only work on something you'd be willing to do for free.

You are only as free as your options.

Feel the fear and do it anyway.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Bucharest, Toulouse, Paris, Granada, Madrid, Montpellier, Barcelona, Malaga; surfing, hosting and going out for coffee and drinks.


Salsa, capoeira, everything Brazil-related, flamenco guitar, biology, weird music, breaking social conventions, audiobooks, jazz trumpet, learning the names of the trees around my house and tanning like a lizard at the beach.

Music, Movies & Books

Brazilian Music (bossa nova, MPB, samba, capoeira), Flamenco, Javier Krahe, The Beatles, Elvis Perkins, The Shins, Leonard Cohen, The Kooks and coool jazz.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Scuba-diving and Half Moon partying in Thailand.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach the most incredible way to peel a banana and a lot of random useless facts about anything and everything. I'm also a kick-ass language coach.

Countries I've Visited

Greece, Portugal, Romania, United States

Countries I've Lived In

France, Spain
