About Me


To document the world in my head so I can make some films about it.


I`m an easygoing guy. I feel younger than I really am and I like to live as free as I can. I`m quite a party guy and somewhat of a drunk, still I´m responsible and have managed to achieve a good professional carrer doing what I want. I love to travel not only for the new places I go but also for the new people I meet.

Wow !! Reading that again it sounds sooo cheesy.
Okay, let's bring some reality to it.

I'm an alcoholic, but I pretty much just beer.
I really love to chat all day but only with a few people at a time. I hate crowded places. I'm not the kind of guy who wants to be the center of atention but I'm a great sidekick.

I have a sick sense of humor and I love mean jokes.

I am quite lazy to write and completing a profile is a pain in the ass for me, but I read and talk a lot.

I don't plan ahead and I have no clue what I'm doing with my life but since is working so well so far. I think I'll junst continue with it as it is.


I believe in plain luck, I belienve in fun times, I believe in good people and I believe that whatever we´re doing here is temporary so we need to live life the fullest we can. Still I´m no dumb and know what long term means.
Anyways, I'm traveling without any planning and I love this feeling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just found out about CS, so I can´t say I did participate at all, but I really liked the concept of it so I hope to help as soon as I can.


None so far. Hoping to change that.


Travel, and movies are my life.

I also love beer, rock and roll, beaches and art.
I´m not pick about confort but I love to spoil myself every now and then.

I've been working as a film Editor in São Paulo for the past 3 years, before that I spended a year running a Guest House in the beach on the Northeast of my country. Before that I was studing film in Hollywood for another year and that is it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Yesterday I stumbled upon a venue playing a Gogol Bordello concert (one of my favorite bands) by pure chance in Paris. That was pretty awesome.

In the past.
I had may only motocross lessons in the borders of Myanmar.
I rode an Elephant on into a River.
I got stuck on a snowstorm in chile
I opened up and fixed a broken digital camera only to to loose the last screw inside and short circuit the thing.
I watched the second season of 24 straight from the beggining to the end on a 18 hour marathon.

Teach, Learn, Share

I´m like to open thing up with a screwdriver. Sometimes I fix things, other I don´t. Still it´s worth the try.

And I love when someone can show me a good movie that for some weird reason I have never saw and it´s great.
