About Me

Hi!

I'm an online writer looking to tour the world.

I'm starting by moving from Colombia to Ecuador, hoping to travel down South along the Pacific (Peru, Chile, Argentina).

I am a business consultant and online writer. I love science, learning, science learning.

I'm the main writer at moodlenews.com.
I would love to do nothing more than writing fiction.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet people from cities all over South America and the world.

My plan is to get settled in a city, then I could offer a 'couch' to a fellow traveler.

I'm on Couchsurfing to connect with others, and in case I need some help moving in
(actually I kind of need some right now to find a place in Guayaquil :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Radiohead above all else, but I'm fairly open minded about lots of classics. From the top of my head: Chemical Brothers, Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age, NWA and by-products, Yann Tiersenn, Rodriguez, Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand…

Movies: Contact & Double Indemnity are my current favorites ever. I love Kubrick, Billy Wilder, Alex de la Iglesia, Paul Verhoeven. Superhero movies are a bit of a guilty pleasure. I love watching all kinds of new releases, from big-budget to indie to international art-house. I highly respect Welles, Fritz Lang and the Maltese Falcon.

Books: Saramago, Camus, Dostoyevsky, Hesse's Steppenwolf, thought I read it a long time ago. I'm slowly diving into philosophy and Marcel Proust. Books on science and philosophy of science are cool too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Feeling pretty ordinary right now.

I'm trying to learn more things by myself, coding, French and stochastic finance most of all.

I spent two months by the side of my bedridden aunt until cancer took her life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love showing what I know, and finding out what people think.

I am fascinated by finance and global markets! There's evil in there no doubt, but there's also mind-blowing things going on all the time. Strategies, pressure, decisions, discoveries and, above all, human behavior. I have thinking about writing a "finance-procedural" TV pilot for a while.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm fairly knowledgeable about many things.

I can cook, I've made several non-complicated dinners for large groups.

I love coffee and its many brewing possibilities!

I am a patient and agreeable person, very respectful of privacy and personal space, I have a good mood for the most part and I enjoy listening to people. Admittedly, shy and an introvert.
