About Me

We have a dog. Anyone requesting to stay with us should be okay with that.

I was born in Lisbon and raised in Amsterdam. I have studied financial management at university and currently work in finance. Isn't that boring? Not if you like numbers.

Do I feel more Dutch or Portuguese? I feel European.


I live together with my fiancé Janneke in our apartment in Utrecht. If you need a couch, please send a request.

I have hosted before, but when people's profiles are deactivated, the reviews likewise go away.

We have a couch in the living room that fits 2 people.

Write puppy in your request so we know you read this profile. It sounds a bit harsh, but I won't reply to your message otherwise.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To help make the world feel a little more connected.

I believe that Couchsurfing can positively impact somebody’s travels. Exploring by yourself can be nice, but meeting local people can help you better understand cultures, places, food, and other related things.


food, football, history, movies, festivals.
