About Me

**** Currently my time to travel around the world, so unfortunately I don`t have a house to host!***


I left my corporate job in Brazil for the first time to be actually traveling the world myself. I hosted more than 140+ people during those 10 years on CS, couchsurferd a few times. I was a very active ambassador doing a long time, organized the 4 first national meetings, the first panamerican-meeting.
I stayed out of CS for a couple of years after a burn out, but now I`m back :)


I`m curious about life, about people. I worked as a director at a market research company, today I`m working with trends and research about the future. Im always for entrepeneurs, innovators, makers, intellectuals and people in the creative industry to exchange knowledge with.

Trying is my favorite hobby. The good thing is that there are enough things out there to try.

I like events, a bit too much. I like to organize stuff: parties, girl's pedicure afternoon, movie nights. I like to read but usually too hyperactive to sit still. I like reading in the bathroom though.

I like music, I love music. I like dancing, but please dont ask me if I know "how to samba".....


To experiment. To build. To do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I participated in so many volunteer groups and served as an ambassador for couchsurfing for many, many years (about 7).

I hosted about 80 to 90 events, both local to regional, national or panamerican.

Noaways I`m older and more low profile, trying getting to know people in a one-to-one basis
