About Me


Help people. From people in poverty and need, to people just looking for directions and suggestions


I am an interesting person, he he. I think by that I mean I'm pretty crazy. But crazy good (most of the time at least, he he).
Love volunteering, learning, and meeting and learning from people's life and culture as well as "teaching" from my life journey and culture.
I love participating of cultural activities (may it be a gallery exhibition opening or a rural horse back riding event). Have learned recently to find cheap or free places to go to :D
I decided to quit my boring job and I am looking to work for a non-profit organization. Wish me luck!


I've come to this world to help those in need, and this is where the Red Cross has showed me the way many times. Currently in a vocational crisis you are welcome to enjoy :D (and learn from it!).
I believe the universe conspires with you when you really want something.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


New to CS, but looking for volunteering opportunities soon!


I am new to CS, but through a friend I met these two very wonderful girls who I have had great experiences with!


Feng Shui, travelling, reading, dancing, art, history, Catholicism, churches in general (love architecture of churches).
I really like culture, understanding what/how other people live.
The Red Cross Movement (I have been a volunteer at my local National Society for 17 years now).
Volunteering in general, but love it when you can do it in needed communities.
GLBT issues and development.
Love to meet locals when I travel, and love to show people around when I can.

Music, Movies, and Books

Not really a fan of seveth art... but I like seeing movies every once in a while.
Books: Harry Potter, The Bible (christian), Michael Crichton, and very diverse topics.
And music... my taste could not be more diverse, he he. From música plancha to Carmina Burana. From Glee doing Britney to Buddha bar.
