About Me


I want to dance with the world. I want to hear your story and I want you to hear mine. I want to dream like this forever.


I just moved into my new place in Austin, I live downtown. Only 3 CSers in Austin say they live "Downtown" but 1 besides myself actually does.
So If you wanna stay with me, please be willing to do all or any of the following:

(1) Read my profile, to the very end, you'll be glad you did.
(2) Dance like no one's watching
(3) Laugh at my dumb stories ( even if its laughing at me ;p )
(4) Eat like a champion!
(5) Comment on one of my short movies:


I have a ton of film experience on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3350555/.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

They made me an ambassador, so I'm like a super duper couchsurfer or something like that... I think I have the power to delete people's profile 😏


I'm out-going Irish-Mexican who likes to dance, drink, and laugh. I love to share the pint and a story or two.

plus I love MOVIES!!!

I love watching movies and looking at how the frame is composed on screen. I also like going to the local theatre, ballet, and musical. My other interests include playing American Football, MMA (UFC), Basketball, Soccer (football), Running, and playing Videogames.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies by Spike Lee, Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, Michael Mann, Pedro Almodóvar, John Singleton, Alejandro González Iñárritu, just to name a few.

I could watch a movie and talk hours and hours about it, even if I didn't like it.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Making movies, they are the beats to my heart... if you wish to see them, I'd love to show them to you!

Teach, Learn, Share

I taught television production and etiquette and post-production software.

I also know how to take photographs and how to use manual film cameras.

I've also been told I'm a good dancer :)

What I Can Share With Hosts

A safe place to rest your head and breakfast tacos... but if you stay with me, please promise you'll give back to the universe and host a stranger as well! No one likes a moocher!

Also I will only host one Couchsurfer once per month. If you write me an awesome request, (Read this profile), you only up your chances of me hosting you!
