About Me


Trying to open the eyes.


Someone passionate for the world and people. Always thinking about a better way to do things (the problem is that sometimes thinking a lot isn't so good). Nowadays I've been trying to find my own path, day after day.


Just want my way to Ithaca to be the longest possible so that I can feel the blowing wind over and over again.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Giving and taking back, hosting and being hosted, going around the city to discover what humans have inside...


I was in Europe in 2007. It was a hard time, but I have learned many important lessons! England and France, simply beautiful! In 2010 I was back, more mature, better prepared. Couches in Poland and Italy. Fantastic! 2011 began hot, well, actually cold, in Russia. I enjoyed it so much that I am now living here.


I used to play the keyboards, so I love music and musical technology. I love Philosophy and having time to read again would be great. As a good Brazilian, I love soccer and other sports. Trips and friends are always welcome for long discussions.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: topic ones, mainly historical and philosophical, of course. Socrates, Saint Augustine and Descartes by Rossellini; When Nietzsche Wept by P. Perry; Joyeux Noel by Christian Carion and others.
Music: Rock n' Roll (hard rock from the 70s and 80s; pop/rock - Brazilian from 80s and 90s and international; post-grunge; some melodic and epic metal); Samba (Chico Buarque, Cartola and others from "old school" plus Seu Jorge and some considered new); MPB (Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Maria Betânia, Dominguinhos, Zé Ramalho and many others).
Books: too many to describe. "Basically" I appreciate: Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Seneca, St. Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Machiavelli, Bacon, Descartes, Locke, Leibniz, Hobbes, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Voltaire, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Marx, among others. No, I don't have time to read them all. ))
