About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I haven't been far enough and I still want to go further.

ABOUT ME

I'm very interested in knowing other cultures. I love to exchange ideas about world perceptions and I must say that I love southamerica, not because I come from there but because I could find in there a motivation to encourage myself pursuing a simple life sometimes as a contrast to material comfort.
But then I still would like to explore other continents where maybe I could find a different feeling fulfilling enough as the one I found living in southamerica.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I find CS awesome, I think it's a genuine intent to confront our fears and cynicism onto other human beings, recovering what the nowadays world made us lose, which is trust and open friendship for others.

Interests

I'm interested on filmmaking. I love it! I followed a year in a film school located in Vicente Lopez, Buenos Aires, Argentina. We made a shortfilm and I hope to develop more ideas in the future. So if you guys are into a project, let me know, I might be interested.
I'm also coming back to the University pursuing a masters degree in International Law starting this fall. I'm excited about it.

Music, Movies & Books

So many movies touched me in different ways but if I have to mention one out of the blue would be "Cinema Paradiso".
For books I also have so many, and then I would choose "Leviathan", "El tunel", "The metamorphosis".
I love early 90's music, well, that's what my generation was all about: some people call it "grunge" but I wouldn't put it a name, just the sound that changed the world in the late 80's and early 90's. Also classic rock.
Bands: Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Tad, Mudhoney. Also The Beatles and so many bands from everywhere and different times.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Maybe been able to hitchhike all the way from Arica (border between Chile and Peru) to Buenos Aires. 16 cars and trucks in around 8 days. Meeting wonderful people in the way and experience a different way to travel.
