About Me

I'm originally from Barcelona but I currently live in Oakland, next to San Francisco. I'm an engineer by day and a photographer at lunch breaks (@thebayscout in Instagram). I love traveling, exploring new places, sharing experiences and meeting people. In my free time, you'll either find me wandering around with my camera or planning my next adventure.

When I travel, I like to spend minimal time in the touristic spots and focus on the least known spots. I love CSing because it gives me an opportunity to travel as a local.

I'm currently hosting in Oakland. I try to prioritize people with references and active in the community. If I host you, I expect you'll have some time to share a meal (even if it's just a coffee) or do something together.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing has brought incredible friends into my life. Oakland/San Francisco is my home base, where I love hosting travelers and showing them around when I can. I'm a regular at local events and I'm usually down to grab a coffee or go for a walk. Always happy to explore a new area.

From Barcelona to Boston and California, I've hosted, surfed, and bonded. I love exchanging stories and getting inspired by fellow travelers. And I hope to inspire others too!


I have too many hobbies and too little time. I often spend my free time outdoors either hiking, biking, swimming, camping or just chilling. I'm very passionate about photography and love taking my camera and exploring a new place hoping to discover interesting things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I swam with dolphins in the middle of the ocean. By coincidence (or luck). Magic.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you about photography, cooking or how to find the best deals online or in town (According to my friends, I have a special talent for finding good deals and free stuff).

If you are a traveler visiting San Francisco, I'm happy to share some recommendations and help you plan your trip. I've explored the city quite a lot and I've also visited a lot of national and state parks in US.

I'd love to learn more about your experiences, your culture, your traditions and places you have traveled.
