About Me

I'm friendly, confident and straight forward. Kind, relaxed and sarcastic most of the time, I love travels and I'll get lost around the world in a long (who know how long) solo trip from October.
I used to be a painter (abstract), graphic designer and photographer, I'm self-taught in drums, piano and sax. I like outdoors, animals, talk to random people, travels, discover, enjoy big empty spaces.
I work as a stage lighting technician in the entertainment industry, so I mainly work in art galleries, festivals, theatres, events. I also do rope access and abseiling, and I would love to use this skill into photography, research, exploring projects.
Wherever I go I like to go to art exhibitions and gigs, cooking/eating food from different cultures, explore and visit historical sites and meet new interesting people and listen to them stories.
Sportwise I like Krav Maga, rock climbing, swimming.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I'm here as I love the project and I think is the best way to ravel and get to know the culture of the country you're visiting.

One Amazing Thing I've Done
