About Me

CURRENT MISSION

If you want something in life, reach out and grab it!

ABOUT ME

I have a degree in Sport Management, and one in Business Management. I´m a friendly and sociable guy, with lot's of sense of humour I think :) trying to live life the better way possible. I preserve values like freedom, honesty, trust, friend of a friend, responsibility, nature protection...

PHILOSOPHY

Live your life like there is no tomorrow. My life is full of music (dj ), with the ocean ,with sports( tennis, surf,skate )good quality time hanging out with my friends, with my family. I love travelling to places i´ve never been before, make new friends. Always trying to know me a little better.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hosted already more than 900 people from all over the World, and it has been all wonderful experiences, using the cs project. I love the feeling of meeting new people, and have a nice time with them. I can Host in my house, guide across the city, have a drink or a coffee.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had for two times in my house some italian friends that i met during the Erasmus Program in Granada Spain. We had a really nice time together in this beautiful city that is Porto. I showed them the city, the beaches, the night life...it was great, and I miss that time a lot. The year after that I did interrail across europe including Italy where I visited them and I received the same excellent treatment that i gave to them in Porto. I think these experiences,travelling, meeting new people, new ways of living, new food, makes life great, and it changes you to a better and responsible person. This year(2008) i host two austrian,two girls from Poland, and one girl from Russia, and a group of 4 italians. It has been a really nice summer and a very good experience.They were all really great people.
