About Me

PLEASE DON'T SEND ME COUCH REQUEST WITH 3 OR 4 MONTHS OF ANTICIPATION. 7-10 DAYS IS PREFERABLE.

CURRENT MISSION

being human.

ABOUT ME

--- the work i do, the place where i was born, my favorite color or food: all these thing do not define who i am - it'd be too limited. but somehow i am the sum of all those facts... and many others. but i like to think that, when it comes to human life, the sum of the parts equals more than just each part combined.

anyways, brazil is where i was born and raised. as for my job, currently i am a masters student. color: green. food: ice-cream (don't you dare saying ice-cream is not a food!).

PHILOSOPHY

"La utopia esta en el horizonte. Me acerco dos pasos; ella se aleja dos pasos. Camino diez pasos y el horizonte se corre diez pasos mas alla. Por mucho que yo camine, nunca la alcanzare. ¿Para que sirve la utopia? Para eso sirve: para caminar. - Fernando Birri, cineasta argentino.

"Utopia is on the horizon. I come two steps closer, it gets to steps further. I walk ten steps and the horizon runs ten steps away from me. As mach as I walk, I will never reach it. So what is utopia for? Serves for this: that I do not stop walking" - Fernando Birri, Argentinian film-maker."

A utopia está no horizonte. Me aproximo dois passos, ela se afasta dois passos. Caminho dez passos e o horizonte corre dez passos. Por mais que eu caminhe, jamais alcançarei. Para que serve a utopia? Serve para isso: para que eu naoo deixe de caminhar" - Fernando Birri, cineasta argentino.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Host and surf.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I used to host surfers in my flat when I lived in Bogota, Colombia. I've host in my place in Sao Paulo as well, although it's not as big as it was in Bogota. I have surfing experiences in Argentina, Brazil and United States.

Interests

Biking, ecology, backpacking.

Music, Movies & Books

Everything that sounds like Africa: Samba, Salsa, Condombe, Jazz, R&B, Soul, Rap, Hip Hop. I like experimental too.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Winter 2009, Peru. I decided to go way the way from Cuzco to Machu Picchu riding a bike across those very very very hilly valleys in Peru. Just one detail: I didn't know how to ride a bike until the very moment I started my journey.

I'm glad to be alive still!
