About Me

PLEASE, BEFORE SENDING A REQUEST...

Unfortunately, Couchsurfing has changed a lot, so I'll probably only accept you at home if you're into Couchsurfing philosophy. That's my filter, cause in some months I have a lot of requests all days, so if you know what's Couchsurfing about, you'll probably have a chance. Take it into account while writing me a message ;)

CURRENT MISSION

Just moved to Malaga!

I love travelling, and I always think that I should have more time to travel more and more. I like meeting people as much as travelling, I think that both things should came always together!

I've done a lot of trips, but one of the last was travelling around Costa Rica and Panama in a music volunteer program... that was amazing! Another good trip was around Portugal and Spain singing and playing my guitar. Going to Cuba was also great... and I lived for four months in Vermont, USA, so I was able to travel a lot. New Orleans was definitely my favourite city!

ABOUT ME

Open minded, talkative, dreamer. I love making new things all days that I can, and among these things, travelling is one of them. I think couchsurfing is perfect related to my way of life, because I think that if you travel to a place but you don't meet people of that place, actually you aren't travelling.

Then... I work in things related to music (I play drums in some bands and I'm a drums teacher at the Conservatory in Malaga). Also, I like dancing (specially salsa), exploring the city with my bike, and listening to all kind of music. Finally... I love cinema too, chiefly European cinema and American independent movies.

PHILOSOPHY

Avoid routine... and try always to be happy... you will remember it the rest of your life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Years ago, I 'surfed' to Amsterdam with a friend. Fifteen years later, I've been hosting some people in my house in Madrid, and I want to share more and more experiences!

Interests

Almost all kinds of music, travelling, cinema, history, philosophy and psichology. I also like people telling me their stories. I like to walk arond the cities and for me knowing the hidden places of them is a priceless sensation :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Jazz, Rock, Soul, even Country... (Aerosmith, Blues Brothers, Black Keys, Bowie, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, CCR, Queen, Tower of Power, Joe Cocker...). Of course I love to discover things that I've never heard before.

Cinema: Tarantino, Godard, Arronofsky, Scorsese, Christopher Nolan... Groundhog Day, Life of Brian, Persepolis...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once, I created a song and recorded a music video with it... more than 100 people played an instrument or singed in that song, and in the music video you can see the best places of my beautiful town, Segovia. Wanna travel? ;)
