About Me

Je suis un scientifique qui aime voyager, visiter de nouveaux endroits et séjourner avec des locaux. Mon objectif dans la vie est d'être ouvert d'esprit, bien informé, tolérant et empathique autant que possible. Je suis très éclectique dans mes choix d'endroits à visiter, j'adore passer du temps à la plage, à la montagne et dans les grandes villes. Je suis passionné par la musique live, les galeries d'art, les événements sportifs, la science et de passer du temps dans les rues, les foires locales et les marchés. Certaines de mes plus grandes passions sont le football («altinha») de plage, le jiu jitsu, les matchs de football et la samba. La ville où je vis et que j'aime le plus est Rio de Janeiro.

J'apprends le français! J'aime la langue, la culture, la cuisine française et les gens. Alors j’aimerais rencontrer sur couchsurfing des natifs et des professeurs qui pourraient pratiquer le français avec moi.
I am a scientist who loves to travel, visit new places and stay with locals. My goal in life is to be open minded, knowledgeable, tolerant and empathetic as much as I can. I am very eclectic in my choices of places to visit, I love spending time on the beach, in the mountains and in big cities. I am passionate about live music, art galleries, sporting events, science and to spend time on the streets, local fairs and marketings. Some of my biggest passions are playing football (“altinha”) on the beach, jiu jitsu, soccer games and samba. The city where I live and love the most is Rio de Janeiro.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My personal reasons to be on Couchsurf are pretty simple: I’m craving to experience a true cultural exchange with empathetic, generous, tolerant and honest people that are open to become friends, share positivity, willing to try to create joy for everyone and strengthen our community. That is the true spirit of couchsurf for me and I would love some help to keep it alive.
J'apprends le français, j'aimerais donc rencontrer des natifs et des professeurs qui pourraient pratiquer avec moi.


I am interesting in a lot of things that evolves hiking, biking, skating, jiu jitsu, sports on the beach, art, beer, winne, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

🤔can’t pick one!

Teach, Learn, Share

Je suis très intéressé par la pratique du français.

I would like to host preferably native speakers of English, Français, Español and Deutsch, but everyone is welcome!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I normally cook health food and love vegan recipes. I am learning to dance forró and samba, so eventually we could go out to dance or I could give some tips about where to find good places to do it.

Countries I’ve Visited

Denmark, United States
