About Me


Get the best out of life with a good balance between work and leisure


I love to meet friends and to make friends. I like meeting different people, whenever I travel I become fascinated with local people, which are my main concern.
I talk a lot and I'm always interested on new things people have to tell me.
Also, I am hardly on bad humour. I don't remember the last time I was in a bad mood...


Being responsible is not being boring...

Enjoy everyday - the best moments ever may be the ones you didn't necessarilly plan for.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I go to as many meetings as I can, also because I like it VERY much. I have met some great people from here and from abroad. I can say I have already made some real good friends!!!

UPDATE: OK, getting involved is what it is about - I started hosting. Wolfgang from Germany, Karine from São Paulo, Linda and Alex from the States, Lucas from Florianópolis/São Paulo, Agnese and Stefano from Italy and Emmanuel and Maria from Argentina. All awesome experiences - and some are friends for life!!!!!


I have been to many meetings, met a lot of wonderful people (from everywhere) and also met some people outside Brazil that were wonderful company while I was traveling alone!!!

Besides that, hosting and making WONDERFUL friends!!!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like strong movies (Dogville is my favorite) and strong music (Rammstein, System of a Down and Rise Against, for example...). I'm reading a very interesting book written by an American journalist who lived in Brazil for 20 years.
