About Me

I am a cool guy very eager to connect people who have similar goals. I have experience living in many places and in many different environments, all of which has served me to help better understand market needs around the world.

When you give someone something you may feel like you are 'losing' something, by literally losing it, you are really gaining far more depending on what you give.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Try to help people realize that living amongst a community of people who live in different cultures than our own can teach us a lot.

I try to organize a lot of events and help people meet up with each other, using the internet to connect people in real life rather than just the opposite. I think it`s important to discover new cultures and languages. To experience and truly seek to understand new ways of behaving, thinking, speaking, etc...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

From the dozens of people I have hosted who are now my best friends to the great people I have hosted, CS is a great network of caring, smart, fun, trustworthy people. I sometimes feel that the friends I have met on CS are more like my "family" than my biological family.

The people I have met have helped shaped who I am as a person today, and I am very grateful for the existence of the community of people this website has brought together.

Interests

Smiling, treating people well, listening to talented musicians, Resident Advisor, camping festivals.

I like hosting people who have similar interests who enjoy websites, blogging, etc.

  • psytrance

Music, Movies, and Books

Almost any artist listed on Resident Advisor.

Camping festivals and desert hearts events are also great.

The sick, deep bass combined with some great lights and amazing sound quality is... well.... out of this world i guess :-) I love clubs. I´ve been known to party with the sassy lady named Molly before :-).

if you got that, we´ll get along just fine :-) if you´ve got a buncha vouches and you got that we´ll have a fuckin´ great time!

Movies: Born into Brothels, City of God, El Bola, many more...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bought a one-way ticket to Panama at age 19.

Teach, Learn, Share

Many things in life cannot be explained with words and simply must be experienced.

Have patience with people, and allow them to see the world in a new way at their own pace.

Be ok with talking about anything! Sex, drugs, existential stuff...

If you´re homophobic, or racist (or are unsure) seek to understand why that is and ASK someone of another sexual preference or skin color about it! Try to understand!!!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can teach you how to throw a frisbee, cook a wide variety of things with whatever ingredients you have in your house/ local markets...

Bahamas, Canada, Costa Rica, Denmark, El Salvador, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Spain, United States, Virgin Islands, U.S.
