About Me

Come check out the California capital.


To have adventures with locals of different countries and to create lasting memories for me to hold to when I'm old.


Tranquilo, Simpático, Gracioso. Me gusta conocer gente, aunque estoy un poco tímido pero eso cambia muy rápido cuando conozco una persona, porque así empezamos comprender el mundo. If you write a request, make sure to ask how the green monster is treating me.


Amar y aprender de gente. La vida es muy corta. Por tanto me quedo calmado casi siempre. Yo creo que estamos aquí para extender amor entre otros seres humanos y también aprender de otras personas. Con éstas dos cosas, un individuo, en mi opinión, mejora porque desarrolla un conocimiento más profundo de la humanidad.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Introduced by a German friend I met in Sevilla. He attested this was the best way to absorb local culture so I thought I would give it a try.


Hasta ahora, todas las experiencias que he tenido con Couchsurfing son memorias muy preciosas que poseeré todo mi vida. La mejor manera para aprender sobre culturas, idiomas y conocer gente tranquila que solo quieren compartir su propia vida también.


Me encantan leer libros y los consumo con avidez. Cuando no estoy haciendo eso, estoy andando por las calles, explorando, dando vueltas en mi bici, escuchando música, hablando con familiares, escribiendo cartas y cuentos, haciendo cosas con mi jardin, haciendo tonterías, haciend ejercicio o teniendo una fiesta con ojos rojos.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Did a water fast for 100 hours to welcome the new year with a clean body and also to see if I had the mental discipline to avoid food even when I was surrounded by people eating. Next up is a 120 hour water fast!

My friends and I ventured to Joshua Tree National Park and consumed mushrooms. As we progressed further into hallucinating states of mind, we experienced nature on an intimate level and felt one with the earth. Eventually, we reached the pinnacle of our trip only to find ourselves in the desert watching the sun set.

I dressed in a wizard costume and stationed myself on a bridge at my university. When people tried to pass, I told them ¨You shall not pass¨ and when they said something, I collapse to the ground as if I was dead and waited until someone revived me with a magical spell.

Hice dedo durante mi recorrido de la costa oeste de Irlanda, conociendo personas muy güay y compartiendo risas.
