About Me


Improving my French and getting a job in Paris!


I'm from Brazil, economist, like to travel and meet nice people.
When I travel I like having long walks, seeing the sunset, going to pubs to try new beers and listen to live music - if possible some ROCK/METAL!

Don't believe some of the references I have: I'm not the "most kind" or anything like that, I try to be nice to people, but if they start abusing of my good will and I think they are even being disrespectful I get angry and might even give u a negative reference.


Carpe diem!
I enjoy doing things if I can learn sth while doing them, even if I'm not 100% sure where I'm going to get.
I like taking risk - but this is very different from doing crazy/stupid things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to go the weekly meetings and surf when I'm traveling, and now I'm starting to host because finally I have a couch. : )


I have a negative reference because someone who likes playing with this tool got a negative reference from me. She plays with it so her image can be great, but you can see that her references are mainly from friends, not hosts or surfers - one write to the other so everybody is happy... Like T., who created her profile on 23.sept.13 and on 17.oct.13 wrote a reference to G., and vice-versa. By the time I write this (21.dec.13), T. never logged in again and doesn’t have any other reference or friend besides G.
I’m not her to play, and I don’t even have references from some people I consider the best friends I made on CS - I didn’t bother to write reference to them either, because that’s not what this is about!


My professional and academic interest are Financial Markets and Economics&Philosophy.
Personal interests are traveling, reading, seeing different countries and people, music, food, etc

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Working in a Kibutz for 5 months.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook beans in the brazilian style (feijoada). But I'm really good at making a churrasco! I can teach how to make it, if we get a good fireplace and some proper meat (picanha)...
But so far I think what I have shared the most was talking about Brazil, specially giving tips about Rio de Janeiro. ; )
