About Me


Have fun and help people


I grew up in Bogota Colombia, lived in Canada for 7 years (Montreal and Toronto), lived 1 year in Barcelona, 1 year in the Netherlands, 6 months in Brazil, backpacked for 1 year and lived 3 years in the Amazon. Now I work between the Amazon and Bogotá in conservation and indigenous peoples rights.

I am really easy going, laid back and try to be funny. I love music (almost everything) and play the drums. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world.


I believe in respect, peace, tolerance and learning. I like to have fun and enjoy life without hurting anybody, for me enjoying life also involves helping people and growing intellectually as well as partying (I like to drink).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Through the website I stayed in a couple of places in Brazil and loved it. I have slept in many couches around the world and believe it is a great way to meet people.


Music: rock, latin music, salsa, reggae, jazz, fusion, metal etc.

I love to read, it is part of why I studied sociology. Very interested in Social justice and making a difference.

I love other cultures and of course travelling.

I have worked a lot with kids in my live and I love it.

Of course I love to travel cheap, hike, camp, and go to places were local people live.

I love art and try to go to museums.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like literature and particularly semi philosophical novels like Hesse, Camus, Sartre, Sabato, etc.. But I also enjoy simple literature.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I paddled down the amazon river on a surf board for 1500km.

I guess the most amazing project I have and what i am most proud of is my relationship with my family and friends, I have the best of both worlds.
