About Me


take it easy


I guess I am a regular guy, looking to meet new people. I am a little bit lazy for work and I am always planning some new trip. Besides traveling I enjoy going out with friends, parties, cooking, sports, painting (watercolour)- I have been to a few countries including France, Germany, Belgium, England, Holland, Austria, Argentina, Uruguay, Thailand, Finland, Estonia, Russia, China and Australia. I have lived in Japan for 4 years, where I studied in Tokushima Daigaku and worked as a researcher in the field of molecular biology. Currently I work as an orthodontist in Brasilia. Now I want to travel around Europe and south america. I can say I am open minded too (I know this is something that everybody writes, but I do think I am very tolerant). Sometimes I am in the mood for a party, and sometimes in the mood to be quite. However, I always enjoy siting down to have some drinks.
the pictures on my profile are a bit old. i will try to update them soon :)

It says on my profile that my response rate is 25%.. i don't know why . i usually reply to all the requests ... strange!


When the opportunity comes, you take it, because time slips away...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I go to the cs meetings, help csers that comes to Brasilia.
When travel I surf some couchs as well.


So far my experiences were all very positive. I have hosted 3 people, but have met a lot of people through couchsurfer. During my trips I also had fun with others csers and surfed some couches.


painting (although I havent done it lately), sports (swimming, biking, but I do everything as hobby, I am not an athlete at all!), movies, parties , going for a coffee, beer or wine with friends. Lately I have been more bohemian than sportist. Now I am starting to learn how to meditate. Lately i have been trying to surf as well ... quite difficult !
