About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I'm trying to change the world

ABOUT ME

I do a joint-PhD in History of Sciences in Salvador da Bahia (Brazil) and UCB-Lyon I(France) since April 2012.

During the week I work in my lab at the university and I hang out with my friends the week-end.

I'm an easy going and quiet person.
I like talking about many things, especially
history, politics and culture.

With my group of friends we like cooking and share a meal, attending shows, drink a beer in a pub, going for a trek...

PHILOSOPHY

Come as you are and share what you know.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Almost every week I go to the CS meeting in the city I live.

I host couchsurfers as often as I can, mainly during my vacations.

It depends of the time I have but I can show you the city and the places I like.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My main experience was an one month trip in Argentina and Chile in October 2012. 30 days surfing from couch to couch and meeting incredible people.

I also have hosted people, mainly when I was in Brazil when I discovered the community.
