About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To not be evil

ABOUT ME

I am simple, straight forward and pragmatic. I particularly enjoy beaches as most of you do, and on occasion cold climates as most of you don’t. So I grew up in Mexico City, I spent my college days in Boulder Colorado, then to Washington DC, and later San Francisco. I like to be active when I travel, with lot´s of cycling, sports, and trekking. I am saving my travels to those auspiciously comfortable destinations for when I am older, more decrepit, and vested in larger responsibilities, now is the time I belief to drink tea in places that are wild, where you can jump off mountains and land without too much sore.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

enjoy the cultural exchange always.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Met a few interesting peeps on this too.

Interests

I spend a lot of time thinking about ways in which I can defend myself against dangerous wildlife.

What if I do end up stranded one day in a survival situation?

Could happen.

But yea, I like the outdoors, and recently I´ve focused on long distance trail running of which I do a lot of in the mountains of Mexico.

I would like to say that I´m also good at fly fishing, but I´m not, I suck at it, any type of fishing, I´ve never really caught anything, except one time when I fished a "pez rana" in Veracruz (half fish half frog), it was the wierdest thing I had ever seen.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once I wedged myself stuck in between a fence for two hours.

I was later charged with trespassing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Whenever I curl up into a little ball of anxiety and I lose total faith in humanity, I remind myself of a coffee shop in San Francisco who specializes in vegan bacon lattes, and then remember that everything is going to be alright after all.

You see, vegan bacon subsitute is a metaphor for the most important principles of Zen philosophy, but we would have to meet up for one so I could tell you further.
