About Me


Coloring my life.


Couchsurfing became a valuable tool since I began traveling at the age of 20. During my studies, I was keen to get some scholarship which let me study abroad. That is how I started to discover a very little slice our planet. Travelling gives me a lot of human and cultural values. It make me aware how igual and different we could be. Said this, my job allows me to travel about 2-3 times a year. During my journeys I try to learn as much as possible from my peers. The little I know about other cultures is thank others.

As of now, I have settled down in the USA at least for a long term. So this is a good opportunity to discover North america, Central America and South America.

When I am out of work, I try to combine my free time within painting and sports (soccer, outdoors, running


Try to be overstimulated as much as possible. Rid of the laziness.
