About Me


to enjoy!


Life and PhD brought me to Arizona, and now I have become a man of the desert. I love it. I'm mainly interested in the relation between science, technology and democracy; exploring how can we build a more sustainable world through a better understanding of science and technology, citizenship, public engagement and civic participation. From thermodynamics to yoga, I found my self immersed in a diversity of interests and passions. I like to enjoy my self and to enjoy others, to discover new worlds.


Live and let live!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I host, I couchsurf, I travel, I welcome... I love CS, try to take an active part of my local community.


All of my CS experiences have been very positive... Since the first time I hosted back in the day at my mother's house... Trying to explain her the whole purpose and meaning of couchsurfing to her "It is just not about hosting strangers, mom... It goes far beyond that" till what it has become today.... amazing :-)


community living, science and technology studies, complex systems, physics, literature, history, the beach, the sea, the sun, yoga, budhism, reading, travelling, GO game, my friends, my family, good music, great wine, the universe, human beings... and Burning Man.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've been very fortunate to see sunsets in different parts of the world, among the bests I could count: Black Rock City, Punta Cometa, Uyuni, Sedona, Ireland's Giant Causeway, Tulum... Oh, oh, oh, yes, Tulum.

Teach, Learn, Share

"There is a community of the spirit. Join it, and feel the delight of walking in the noisy street and being the noise. Drink all your passion, and be a disgrace. Close both eyes to see with the other eye." *Rumi
