About Me


To live, learn, and enjoy life!


I'm from Brazil, but currently live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. It has been a long time dream of mine to be a doctor in the United States, and it's what I'm currently working towards. I love medical science and above all I love helping people, so being a doctor is the perfect career!

One day soon I hope to travel the world with my wife. Actually we decided to skip the formal wedding to afford a trip to Africa and Asia!


Anything is possible with hope and determination!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


While my wife (fellow couchsurfer Melissa Nesbit) live in a small apartment, we at times can host. I have family in Brazil, and would love to host there as well! When I can't host, I can also show people around, or meet for dinner or drinks!


My first hosting experience was 2 years ago when I hosted my friend (now wife) at the home of my family in Brazil. While traveling I've hung out with a few CSers. I've loved every experienced with Couchsurfing so far!


Reading, learning, languages, capoeira, hiking, and perfecting my spaghetti and meatball recipe!

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to mention-one day I will have a library in my home filled with all my favorite books and movies!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've helped a lot of Brazilian doctors live their dream of coming to America to be a doctor. As far as things that I have seen-The Metropolitan Museum in NYC, MIT and Harvard in Boston, the Smithsonian Museums in DC, and the Pittsburgh skyline (really-it's beautiful).

Teach, Learn, Share

I love teaching! I can teach some capoeira moves, or some Portuguese or Spanish. If you are lucky, I can even teach you my perfected recipe for spaghetti and meatballs!
