About Me


Self-improving (spiritual, cultural, physical, social...)


In one word, I could describe me as a SEARCHER. Infinite curiosity, I love to learn everything about a wide range of matters. Besides my professional education, I've been reading about different issues, from astronomy to kabbalah and from reiki to politics.


Live and let live! I try to take the maximum from life in every situation, but always avoiding any kind of discomfort or harm to anyone or anything.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


hosting, hanging out and traveling


A brazilian friend living presently in Seattle invited me to join him in a road trip to Alaska - it was nice! In another opportunity, on my way back from India, a stopby in London for a few days at some famous british singer's place, thanks to a common friend - total fun!


Mainly MUSIC! I just love it since I can remember - every kind of, according to the mood of the day. Also outdoor sports (snowboard, kitesurfing, beach tennis, diving, cycling, trekking, rowing and so on), martial arts (karate, taekwondo, kalari/vajramushti and aikido) traveling, movies, cooking and reading (specially philosophy).
