About Me


Discover the world!


I am a very communicative and handsome guy, willing to make first couchsurfing experience and adventure! It's an amazing concept because I like getting to know new people from different origins. I think that every day without laughing is a wasted day (:


My philosophy: Home is where the heart is. There are so many beautiful places around the world, so much to see. So whenever you feel good at any place you can call it home :)
that could be anything: a special location, the company of special people or doing your favourite activity

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Getting to know local people from all over the world, their way of life and philosophy. I like to have inspiring conversations with people with another view on life/the world.


In my free time I enjoy playing tennis, running and just being outside :).
But my greatest passion is travelling! Besides I'm interested in meeting friends, doing some graphic design and music (electronic music)

I'm not interested in reading because I get tired by doing it =)
I prefer electronic music

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed Pico mountain on the Azores with my girlfriend. Hiking up, climb up the top and enjoying the amazing view over the clouds and some islands/Atlantic, sleeping in a tent in the volcano crater, the descent: getting totally lost without any visibility, GPS out of battery, suffering in the greatest storm and rain We've ever felt, seriously questioned if we get out there alive, reaching the bottom totally exhausted and freezed but maximum happy and glad

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you how to play tennis because I am a tennis coach =)
