About Me


re-connect with home


born and bred in Quito, I moved to Germany for college and never looked back. I love to hear all about different cultures and their foods and I'm just happier when I'm surrounded by an international group. I try to be open and helpful to others so I would love to show you around Quito, Berlin or wherever I'm based at the moment. If I'm visiting other places, I really prefer to wander off the beaten track, I'm more interested in seeing the daily life stuff, and did I mention tasting the local food?


"I will not lend my name nor my rhythm to your beat. I will dance and resist and dance and persist and dance. This heartbeat is louder than death. Your war drum ain't louder than this breath." - Suheir Hammad
