About Me


Figure out the workings of this fascinating world and its inhabitants


well, I've lived in many countries of which the Netherlands, France, USA, UK, Spain and Mexico are the most significant.
I'm interested in many things and easy to get on with. Most of what I own fits in a couple of suitcases, a digital photo album and a long conversation...


Try to balance responsibility, friendships, curiosity and a good time, all in one short life. My philosophy is in constant flux, and anyone who cares for a chat around a beer, tea or meal can contribute to it :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I´ve slept on many couches, and my couches have had their fair share of traffic. I have frequented the CS community essentially in Brazil and a little bit in Europe.
It´s by sharing daily activities and sharing spaces with people, even for short periods, that you learn most about them and their culture.


Travels, music, languages, people, history, sustainable development in all its dimensions, and pretty much all things around me :-)
