About Me

"You can only be free for so long, then the chains start to bind you. The answer is to keep moving."

Avid cyclist, surfer, capoeirista, amatuer MMA, naturist, simple musician, eternal vagabond, lover of languages and all things feline. 4:20 friendly ;)

I love my bike, my guitar, my surfboard, and being outside (preferably in the water or in a tree).


Everything popular is wrong.

Everything in moderation, especially moderation. (aka: The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been on here since 20007; hosted, surfed, organized, meet-up, etc... nowadays I'm a little more relax, a little less involved, and a little less familiar with the layout ;)

I'm not interested in online chat: only contact me in regard to legit questions or attempts to meet in person. Mahalo


Surfing, stuntwork, cycling, circus arts, cartoons, jam sessions, jui-jitsu, joints, languages, living wild dreams or just a simple life at the sea.
