About Me


Have been working for 4 years as A&R Manager for a Record Label (Napalm Records) with focus on metal and rock music. I quit my job and I've been traveling now since October 2010. Started in New York and wanna go all the way down to Argentina. Still no idea how long it will take me but since I'm interested in working in every country I'm sure it will take me some time.

Working and living with the locals is the only really way to learn something about the country, its culture, and especially the people. Interested in all kinds of work, as long as it keeps me on the road and I can learn something new I'm more than happy.

My big passion is music, all kinds of, playing instruments (drums and guitar), listening and enjoying concerts. I prefer Rock music but I`m really open-minded to nearly all genres.

I also like cooking, cinema, photography, and going out. Smoker and Drinker.

Trabajaba para una discografía que se llama Napalm Records y después de 4 años lo terminé para viajar. Empecé mi viaje en Octubre 2010 en Nueva York, USA y me gustaría visitar todos los países de América Latina. Mi intención es quedarme en cada país un rato, buscar trabajo y vivir con la gente. Para mí es la mejora manera de aprender el idoma y conocer la gente, sus costumbres, ... Aún no sé cuando voy a terminar este gran viaje pero algun día espero llegar a Argentina.

Mi gran pasión es la música, cualquier aspecto sea, de tocar instrumentos (la batería y guitarra), escucharla o solo disfrutar el momento de un concierto en vivo.

A mí me gusta también cocinar, el cine, la fotografía, salir, bailar.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing



Well, I started my journey through Central and South America in October 2010. Didn't really use it until I came to Honduras in February 2011 as I preferred staying in Hostals so far. Due to lack of hostals I used Couchsurfing and just jumped from one great experience to the other. Especially Honduras was a blast. Never expected to stay 6 months but the people are just too friendly. Without CS I'm sure I would have never got job and place to stay that easy!

Can't wait to host once I've found a place to settle down.

Empecé mi viaje en Octubre 2010 y no había usado couchsurfing hasta llegué a Honduras. Ahí no hay muchos hostales, pero la gente es demasiado amable. Nunca he pensado en quedarme 6 meses ahí, trabajar y vivir. Fijo, CS te puede ayudar bastante!
