About Me

I love challenges and new ideas, I easilty get bored. I love picking up new hobbies and connecting with different people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet interesting new people of course - I've met many, especially through the events and Hangouts features. I'm also cheap.


I'm into music bigtime, my main project ATM being brasilian percussions, of which I lead a small band. I also love lifting weights at the gym, learning brasilian jiu-jitsu and fighting in general, playing guitar, singing, talking shit with friends at the bar, partying. In my free time I'm working on my math PHD.

Music, Movies, and Books

A lot of brasilian drumming stuff (Ile Aiye, Olodum, Timbalada, Monobloco), a lot of harder stuff (Slayer, Cavalera, Tool, Meshuggah, NOFX), some jazz (mainly guitarists: Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, John Scofield, Bill Frisell), Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Kyuss...

I love reading, and though it was mostly non-fiction for a long time I recently rediscovered fiction and I'm enjoying a lot. Books I've been reading in the last year
- About Face
- Musashi
- Crime and Punishment
- The Art of Learning: An Inner Journey to Optimal Performance
- 12 Rules for Life: an antidote to Chaos

I also am a big fan of podcasts/books from Jocko Willink, Timothy Ferriss, Joe Rogan and Jordan Peterson.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I kissed my elbow, twice

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a very curious man, a scientist that will always be a kid, my life is all about learning interesting details about stuff. I'd love to know more about anything you're passionate about.

What I Can Share with Hosts

advanced italian cooking skills and bitching, music and math counseling/exchange, manual labour (I love to move heavy stuff, dig holes etc.). I can show you some basic jiu-jitsu concepts for self-defence.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Brazil, China, Croatia, England, France, Greece, Grenada, Hungary, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Netherlands, Slovenia, Trinidad and Tobago
