About Me


Still learning how to play the guitar.


I love traveling and meeting new people. I have lived in 6 countries so far and I am sure more to come in the future. I run a language course here in Rio de Janeiro teaching English and Portuguese to foreigners.


I try to see the best in life and people. There is no point in being negative as you bring yourself down and everyone around you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have lived in Rio for 3 years so for anyone who is moving here or just coming for a vacation I can offer you help with finding accommodation, good places to eat, how to best get around the city and of course Portuguese classes ;-)


I have been to a meeting and met a few people of lunch, dinner and drinks.


Reading, cooking, wine, languages, anything creative, extreme sports.

Music, Movies, and Books

All movies except horrors, can't stand them. They give me nightmares.
All music, wherever my mood takes me to.
Books, I love mysteries, romance and non-fiction

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I have ever seen would have to be The Northern Lights. It's so magical. My skydive might be the most amazing thing I have done so far..... 14,000 ft over the rain-forest in Australia.

I run a language course that teaches English and Portuguese to foreigners. All our teachers are native teachers. Feel free to check us out.
