About Me

Back in 2013 I was an architect. One day I realized I was 25 and I had lived nothing. I sent everything away and went to South America.

It lasted 2,5 years

I crossed America from Brazil to the USA on Parkinson, my shaking motorbike, played the World Series of Poker in Vegas, lived with indigenous in Caribean islands, indians in the middle of Amazonia, peasants, minors, soldiers, dealers, students, porn stars, and very normal people... I rode everywhere, fell in love, got bike accident, a gun on my head, 2 knives on my throat, 6 kids on my back...

I have around 38020 stories to tell. That's actually why I became a writer :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've been there since 2007. I think I don't lie saying that I met thousands of surfers


My architect side made me like stones and people.
I'm passionate about everything which differentiate us from animal : culture, arts, history, politic, religion etc...

Passionate about live poker, and what it brings : psychology, body language, emotional control, mental strength, statistics, sociology, sociability, adrenaline...

Love photos, videos, and writing. Everything I'm doing on my blog.

Love to ride my bike.

Music, Movies & Books
