About Me


A conocer, se ha dicho!


I'm friendly, creative, quiet but sociable.


Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there. (Rumi)

Bailemos, bailemos, si no estamos perdidos! (Pina Bausch)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I like meeting up, helping people out when I can, and hope to have a couch to offer soon.


I love dancing, capoiera, music (all kinds, and I play the flute), travelling, meeting new people and learning languages.

Music, Movies & Books

Books... La danza de la realidad, life and times of michael k, the god of small things, catch 22, anything by Cormac McCarthy, or Isobelle Carmody.
Music... florence + the machine, dj krush, aussie hip hop, gotye, tango, cumbia and a million others.
Movies... Pan's labyrinth, children of men, donnie darko, it's all gone pete tong, battle royale, lantana.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Two highlights of travel: seeing the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet; and relaxing in hot springs at Santa Teresa, near Macchu Picchu in Peru.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have extensive language tutoring experience and was also a flute teacher so I can put my listening and teaching skills to practice if necessary :) I can also bake a good cake.

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, China, El Salvador, France, Peru, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I've Lived In

Australia, Chile, China
