About Me

I love sailing, sports, former national champion. I became a professional actor, writer, musician, love Jung and Depth Psychology, about to enter a master program in those areas of depth psych. Creativity has been a long part of my life. I lived and studied in Brazil, England, and the US.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

AirBnb was taken, so I thought this was a good way to meet and connect with locals and get the experience of the culture of the city.
