About Me


I am a biologist. Was working in the Brazilian Amazon before decided to take a break and travel through Latin America for a couple of months. I grew up in the state of Paraná, Brazil. First in a small village and then moved with my family to the capital, Curitiba. After that I lived in Cape Town (South Africa), São Paulo (Brazil), Lincoln (Nebraska-USA) and Manaus (Brazil). Love rain forest (that's why i decided to work in the amazon) and getting to know other biomes and cultures around the world. I am currently living doing my PhD in São Paulo (University of São Paulo) but still working in the Amazon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I first go to know about CS through a teacher I had at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (USA). But signed up only now, when I decided to travel through Latin America.


I had great experience with couchsurfing while backpacking in South America. Surfed in Peru and Panama and met people in Colombia.


Travel to to get to know people, cultures, biomes. Walking, hiking, sports.
