Create as many good times as possible
A gregarious introvert: I'm usually relaxed and pensive, but when something triggers enthusiasm in me I explode with fun dumplings. What I love most is hanging out with intelligent, funny, inspiring people. I also love making art or music, playing tennis, meditating, drinking mate (tea), and partying.
I'm half Argentine but grew up in Vancouver.
People just want to be happy. I live my life so as to maximize love and happiness. Sounds flaky but I'm not sure there's a better way to put it. Anything towards that end is totally worthwhile.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I like to host while at home, and surf when abroad.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I once made it all the way from Canada to Argentina on an expired passport.
I randomly bumped into a friend one night while on the other side of the world. I witnessed a guy get shot in a robbery. I made a cool video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSCxmY5MtsQ
