About Me

- first time experimenting digital nomadity and roaming for 4 months on SE Asia;
- degrees in numbers, but earning my living with letters
- maniac about languages and how their subtleties tell a lot about the culture of a place;
- amateur musician, lover of Brazilian instrumental music (choro) and jamming with surfers and hosts
- still wants to scuba dive, bungee jump, sky dive, learn to surf and salsa and how to play the piano
- still wants to record a music album and write a book


Love as religion

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing connects people in such a seamless way. I am really grateful for the inventors/maintainers of this tool for all the friends it allowed me to find. CS is one of the greatest inventions of the internet and I always find a way to recommend it to whom still haven't heard about it.

Music, Movies, and Books

Musics that can put your head elsewhere while your feet are in the ground. Books that can be lived.
Movies I don't see much because I fall asleep. But when I need to do it, I have a technique: watching 20 mins at a time

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Forgetting who I am at Rio Carnaval
- flooded with human heat on Myanmar's water festival
- rolling down 3km altitude at Coroico, Bolivia
