About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to know the daily life of the cities that I visit. Meet people and learn from them, making many friends and contribute in some positive way.
I believe that the relationship with different people and cultures makes us better as human beings, broadening our horizons and our worldview.

ABOUT ME

I am a visual artist, illustrator, biologist and student of architecture.
I am very dynamic, like to make friends, talk and smile. I like to play sports, walk and be in contact with nature.
I can be very quiet or talking too much. I'm usually smiling, telling a story and discussing art and politics.
I like adventurous people, artists and young spirit.
If you see couchsurfing only as a place to sleep, or a hotel, please do not ask for my couch.
_________________________________________________
I only receive 1 person in my house, so requests for more than one person will not be answered.
It is good to always remember that couchsurfing says much more respect for cooperation and exchange of friendship than having a free place to sleep. Couchsurfing is not hotel.
If you do not have references, at least your profile should be complete with information and photos of you. It is also interesting to have the link to facebook or instagram.
It's also important to know that I'm gay, I smoke marijuana, and I'm politically left-wing.

PHILOSOPHY

I seek to expand my ability to love all living beings. I believe that everything that happens to us is an opportunity to become better people. Life should be seen as a gift.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have received many travelers. I try to provide the best so they can re-energize and follow traveling.

Interests

I like good conversations watching the sea, in the late afternoon, waiting for the moon to rise ... I like to spend all day playing with my longboard, knowing the city and people with free spirit ... I like to tell stories and Adventures that I have already lived, and also hear good stories ... But I also appreciate the silence and the introspection ... Music, nature, arts and embrace my friends.
