About Me


My mission would be to get to learn as much as I can about this beautiful existence. I've come to realize that when u stop learning, you start to close your mind, and traveling is one of the most exciting ways to learn cool stuff!


I live in Buenos Aires, around 1 hr away from downtown, in a city called Castelar. I play bass and guitar, love futbol and travelling.


Made out of energy and matter, just like you, just like this desk or that tree over there. And that would be the starting point nowadays for me, as that makes me want to be in eternal expansion, growing and learning, allowing me to use that knowledge to do my very best at being a human being. I try to be a positive energy in every possible way, love messing around, taking it easy, joking. It is my belief that laughter and art can save us all, mainly from ourselves.
Most people I know at some point in their lives get to call me crazy, but that's just because I learned to express myself in any way I can. I like my life bright, laughy, clean, translucent, true and cheerful, and in opposition, I enjoy dark, creepy and bizarre art. I think that duality is the best way to stay sane

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined CS because I find it is a great way to finally move forward and begin my traveling adventures. I mean, I usually travel on vacation trips, but I want to get to live somewhere else for a while, so CS would be my starting point to get to find 'the coolest person ever' (which could actually be several people, of course)


Mostly surf because I don't have a place of my own... yet


Art, music, bass playing, socializing, soccer, writing, films, books, swimming, videogames, psychology, philosophy, unlocking hidden brain power, yoga, metaphysical stuff, having fun 24/7, being in a good mood, creepy stuff, crossing limits, chilling, nature, animals and basically everything from which I can learn something

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Fear and Loathing, Brazil, Groundhog's Day, Fight Club, Oldboy, Will Ferrell's movies, David Lynch's movies, 12 monkeys, all of Monty Python's stuff and many, MANY more.
Books: Orwell, Camus, A Clockwork Orange, In Cold Blood, all by Alejandro Dolina, Nothing in this book is true but it's exactly how things are by bob Frissell, Operación Masacre by Rodolfo Walsh, Nine Stories by Salinger, Chuck Palahniuk, Poe, Lovecraft, Dracula by Bram Stoker. Love reading, but sometimes I'm too lazy to do it, so I read procastinationally (?)
Music: Punk roots (Ramones, Cadena Perpetua, The Clash, Bad Religion)
Post punk (The Cure, Joy Division)
Funk (RHCP, Jamiroquai, Larry Graham)
Grunge (Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam)
And then random stuff like Gogol Bordello, Pulp, The Strokes, Sumo, Heroes del Silencio, Zero 7, RATM, Primus and Les Claypool (who's guilty of me playing bass), David Bowie, The Cranberries, Sublime, Victor Wooten (great inspiration), QotSA, Tom Waits, Rammstein, el Cuarteto de Nos, Weezer, Queen, Ska-P, Pixies, Manu Chao, Jack Johnson, The Beatles and everything with a good bass sound.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelled a bit around South America for 5 months, met people, found the coolest places, played music, been bitten by a dog and talked a lot.

Teach, Learn, Share

We can share meditation, yoga and consciousness expansion thoughts. I've always been a self-learner, I enjoy finding out stuff on my own without structures. I try to go with the flow so not to get bored. Do a little bit of this, then learn a little bit of that and try to apply it, and maybe learning a bit more of the first thing, and then if I find something that I think it's worth knowing for someone else, I try to share it. However, not everyone is willing to listen to certain things or teachings, and that's always ok. No imposing. Free will is always there, and once you understand that, you get the basics for being a tolerant person, and along with tolerance comes happiness.
Learning is a way of living, and you can learn something from anyone or anything.
