About Me

I was born and raised in Portugal but I have been living in Australia long enough to call it home. I work from home as a computer programmer and part time masseuse.
I'm a young spirit, quite open and open minded, social, positive, respectful and easy going. I enjoy the little things in life and I try to make the most of each day.

As a host, I try my best to make my guests feel comfortable and enjoy their stay as much as possible. I am very open, easy to talk to and I usually get along the best with people who are the same. I prefer guests to treat me as a friend than as a host.
I want guests who want to spend time together rather than just looking for a place to sleep. And I also prefer medium/long stays rather than just one or two nights. I like to have enough time to connect with my guests. I've made some good friendships with previous guests and hope to do more.
Don't be afraid to send a request for a long period. We can adjust if needed.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting people from different cultures and hearing their stories.
On top of that, I love Brisbane and I want to share it with travelers.


Socializing, board games, movies and series (Netflix rules!) and outdoor activities like hiking and sightseeing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm not much of a reader and I usually don't make a list of favorites. But here are some random movies that I quite liked...
- Brokeback Mountain
- Shawshank Redemption
- Mao's Last Dancer
- 7 Pounds
- The Invention of Lying
- Most Avenger and X-men movies

And some favorite TV shows...
- Friends
- Two and a Half Men
- How I Met Your Mother
- The Big Bang Theory
- Breaking Bad
- Game of Thrones
- Lucifer

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Great Barrier Reef was quite an amazing experience!
But I'd say that the most amazing thing I've done was to get in a plane to come to a country on the other side of the planet and where I knew no one at all... And I don't regret it a single bit! :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I quite enjoy having intelligent conversations where I can teach and learn. I know a bit about many things and I can easily absorb what others have to teach me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm not a great cook, especially out of my environment, but I'll definitely help with the cleaning and any chores I can help with.

Canada, England, France, India, Ireland, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, Viet Nam
