About Me


Looking to meet fellow travelers and CouchSurvers on my world-wide journeys


I'm half Argentine/half American. As a child, I lived in Nicargua, Chile, and Argentina. However I have spent most of my adult life in the United States.

I have been living in San Francisco, California for about 11 years but am about to move to Portland, Oregon. I've been traveling around the world since the middle of 2012 and my heavy travels are coming to an end in 2015.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I've hosted people in SF and surfed in a dozen or so countries. Both are fun!


Couchsurfing has opened whole new worlds to me. I've made new friends and had fun adventures with fellow CSers, not to mention gotten excellent practical advice from locals and expats all over the world.


Camping, photography, skiing, biking, Muay Thai, running, bike touring, hiking, travel, burning man, electronic music, meditation and other eastern spiritual practices, history, politics, psychology, economics, world affairs, travel.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I wouldn't call them "amazing" but fun/interesting things I've done include:

* Living at Biosphere 2 during college.
* Bicycling across the United States in 58 days (approx. 7,000km)
* Attending Burning Man 10 years in a row... Each year has been amazing.
*Training Muay Thai for 3 months in Thailand
*Hiking the Israeli National Trail from Lebanon to Tel Aviv
* Bought a motorcycle on and drove form Saigon to Hanoi on the Ho Chi Minh trail
* 21 day monastic meditation retreat in a 700 year-old monastery in Burma
* Drinking Ayahuasca in the Amazon
