About Me

If your request doesn't show that you read my profile, I will just answer NOT without an explanation. I REALLY love Couchsurfing, but nowadays it is being VERY hard to host people. Not because I don't have time or disposability, but because it is being hard to find interesting relations!
Does't metter for me that you are doing a really interesting trip, getting know all the cities! What does metter is what you are open to share and how it is going to be interesting to me to share with you too!
But, if you don't even realized that I don't live in the Rio de Janeiro city... Just give up! Sure that is the reason that it is being hard to you to get a couch!


Knowing new people and thoughts and find a new way of seeing life.


I am very happy and I love to party with my friends. I love meeting different people and cultures.


To me, life must be lived. Fullest and peacefully.
If you hurt your foot, you can go work. But if you wake in the morning and the day is beautiful and your son runs to hug you and say "Dad, the day is beautiful! Lets go to the beach together?" - This is a really good reason for a day off.

Some idiot convinced the world that life is WORK. This is not true. You need to work, but not live to work. You have ONE LIFE TO LIVE. Are you going to see it or are you going to follow the path to repentance?

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." ~Mark Twain

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm here to make friends. I'm here to enjoy the city with you, even if it is going in the same places I have ever been before. I'm here to improve my English. I'm here to hear your story, knowing what makes you happy, find out what makes you smile and you do not like. I'm here to drink a beer with you, talk about anything: sad or happy (what you want. The important thing is the conversation). I'm here to help you in any way possible. I'm here to cook together and enjoy good food. I will open my home to you, show you my collection of drinks, tell my stories and my theories.I hope you will respect and cherish our friendships between us (you+me+my friends), even though, our shared time in town would last only a few days (or up to a week?). After all: I'm not here just to host you. I'm not here to be only your link with the city.If you understand this, Welcome!


I learn from every person I get in my house. I've had good and bad experience.Bad: My guests have brought their guests to my house without telling me. I've got people who do not even bother to keep tidy their own beds. My house has been used only as a hotel. Good: I made great friends. Amazingly, you can make a great friendship in just one week.The level of intimacy that is won in that short time you can tell a lot about people. Great partnerships are established easily when we find the right people. I learned many things about life and about life values. The confidence of a person, a woman, a child ... are definitely very important things to be irresponsible with. I learned many things that we'll talk when you're here!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

At 29 years old I quit my job, leave my apartment, and my country and I traveled for 6 months doing couchsurfing, sleeping on the beach, in the street, cheap host ... And now I do not know exactly what I need, but I know what I do not need!
And go to nightclubs to see artificial and superficial people, I do not. Buying things to feed my ego, I do not.
Being with good people, drinking a beer and having good conversations, it is indispensable!
