About Me


To explore, write and learn Portuguese


I'm currently based in Rio de Janeiro working as a freelance journalist.


Love it, live it...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Keen to make new friends and learn Portuguese.


I've mainly used CS for meeting people while travelling. In Buenos Aires and then again in El Paso I met really exciting groups of young people who were incredibly welcoming and took me out and showed me the town. It's an indispensable tool for when you arrive in a new place and don't know anybody.


Football, reading, travelling...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching the sun go down on the last day of my trip to Cuba. Sitting with my girlfriend on Havana's Malecon gazing out over the Gulf of Mexico with a bottle of anejo especial as the city glowed orange is something I'll never forget.

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak English, Spanish, German and French and am always happy to help people out who are learning. On my part, I'm trying to learn Portuguese so any help anyone can offer is always much appreciated.
