About Me


to know and to share as much as I can. And trying to live as a musician too ;)


Kinda nomad, but love my crazy hometown.
I also love music (many kinds), cats & dogs, rock parties, different cultures (from mine), the beach, the country side, bavarian beer (ok, british and irish beers too) and to spend some time in another country.
one of my favorite quotes:
"and in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make" - The Beatles


Travelling and knowing other cultures, that´s one of the things that amazes me most. To see how many similarities, as well as differences, we have from people all over the world. Breaking prejudices and barriers. Helping people (from the simple action of having a couch, to doing really voluntary work somewhere in the world)and being helped as well.
And yet, getting always more knowledge and exchanging this knowledge.
That´s living for me! that´s all I wanna do!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed in Austria, Italy, Germany, Slovenia and England. I used to go to all weekly meetings when I was travelling, but I´ll be honest, don´t do this back home...
Now it´s time to get back to those meetings. So maybe I´ll see you people here in São Paulo
Cheers :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

don´t know... well, when I was 15, I went to Pantanal(below Amazon), in the middle of the forest, and stayed there only with the local people and the indians. no hot water, no light, only the nature (alligators everywhere at night...). It was cool.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Portuguese, English, Yoga and great vegetarian recipes!
Also into music jamming, always!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live in the south zone of São Paulo, by the reservoir, a little bit more quiet than the centre.
Although it is not close to the greatest bars, there's a train nearby which connects you to the subway, so you can walk around the whole city (must have plenty of time more that...)
I live with my boyfriend, who is from Argentina (but all his roots are in Uruguay) and we both love cooking for our guests and showing a little of our culture mix home, along with our dog and cats :)

Countries I’ve Visited

Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Uruguay
