About Me


Keep it simple


*** Brazilians welcome! Bemvindo aos Brasileiros! ***

I'm a 34 years old urban beast, interested by arts, literature, cinema (I mean, they're not hobbies, they are passions).

Name droping? Deleuze, Agamben, David Lynch, DFW, Kafka, Joyce, Matthew Barney. I travelled some and I speak 5 languages (my German isn't very good though.) I like sports and martial art (capoeira, boxing, jiu-jitsu), sub-culture, music (classical, hip hop, ambient, spacefolk, and a lot more for sure). Of course, I do love watching hockey.

I'm happy. I fled university after my PhD(so I'm not so much into the academic game anymore) and I work in a college, which gives me a lot of time every year to travel and write. Hm. And I'm a huge fan of the Marx Brothers.


Im Kampf zwischen dich und der Welt, sekundiert der Welt - or something like that. In the struggle between you and the world, assist the world. Dans le combat entre toi et le monde, seconde le monde. Looking for flow. Love Tchouang-Tseu.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was travelling with Servas in 1997. I've stayed in a lot of homes, especially in Romania. Great experience.


Arts, literature, music, cinema, culture - high, middle or low brow. Capoeira, flow in sports.
