About Me


Starting a Social Enterprise in Mexico.


Love flying (Hang-Gliding and Paragliding) and Horseback riding (Cross Country and Polo)+ love Photography and I spend 80% of my resources traveling the world. I work as an executive and life Coach for high performance athletes and entrepreneurs.


I would rather be ashes than dust,
a spark burnt out in a brilliant blaze
than be stifled in dry rot.

For a man's chief purpose is to live,
not to exist...I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them, I SHALL USE MY TIME. (j.London)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sheltering, and touring travelers. Try to go to as many weekly meetings as I can.

Now, some important things about my couching:

- NO COPY PASTERS: I write very personal couch requests to people I plan to stay with, and I expect the same. Don't just send the same thing you sent to some other person.

NO EMPTY PROFILES: I don't answer, let alone host, any people who don't have photos or sufficient personal information, references are always a big plus.

And last but most important; ENJOY Mexico City, One of the most beautiful cities in the world.


Came across Couchsurfing by a random encounter with a friend and I am happy for that. This was the kind of community I have been looking for without realizing it. I am constantly burning with "travel fever" and want to experience as much of the world (ether by travel or meeting other travelers at home) its different cultures and its peoples. More to come...

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a big range of likes...as long as the material is not commercial, and tasteless. I enjoy experiencing all, latest surprise in music was a last minute call of Of Monsters and Men, and an amazing true story made a documentary named "Searching for Sugar-man"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Dived with a Whale-Shark
-Explored the Baja Desert
-Crossed country Han-gliding flight for 205km
-Cavalry charge at full canter among other 80 horses
-The moment Canada scored the Goal for the Gold Medal in Hockey at the Olympics of Vancouver 2010
-Saved a life

The person you know yourself to be is not really who you are. Who you know yourself to be, that is to say, who you think you are, is actually only a way of being.

The person (self) that you fundamentally and inherently are for yourself is not who you really are - " really are" like a set, immutable self, or at best, a merely add to be able or changeable self.

You are not limited to the person you would up being, the person you think you are.

Saying the same thing in another way, who you currently know yourself to be is not authentically who you are, it is just a way of being....
