About Me

RECENTLY. I am now travelling through Mexico with my german friend Fabian who I met while hiking in Spain. We would love to meet some of the best hidden places in the mexican states (those stunning spots where tourist don't go, and travellers or locals do explore). If you can host us or teach us a bit more about your state/city/town. Please write us a message. : )

Next stops May-July '16: Yucatán, Quintana Roo, Campeche, Chiapas, Oaxaca...

----------
Me.

I grew up in Mexico City , in a neighborhood in the Ajusco surrounded by woods and a beautiful view. My mom taught me to love the water before walking , so I've been a swimmer since almost my birth. During my childhood, I use to camp with my neighbors in our home backyards for weeks, we rode our bicycles and played outside all day long, so there is where my wild spirt comes from.

I'm an audiovisual producer with particular studies and interests in sound design, sound recording and sound postproduction for films. I normally work as a freelance recording TV shows, making scripts, producing videoclips and more. But the most important, I am passionate about transmiting, sharing and learning all kinds of knowledge, so trying to understand the world is my favorite activity.

I love hearing all kind of well-made music (my fav now is folk, gypsy jazz and R&B). I play some guitar, keyboard and ukulele (all self-taught). Music is my loyal companion and my favorite language.

I am adventurous, curious, friendly, open, free and a happy girl.
