About Me


To bring forth an environmentally sustainable, social just and spiritually fulfilling world. Coz I know we can.


I am a very outgoing guy, good listener, I can make friends everywhere. I also like to talk too much, sometimes about anything, but my favorite topics are culture and arts. The ones that have seen me taching, would say that I am a very good teacher and I like to work very hard. They would also say that I take things very seriously, but can joke around.


Live and let die. Karma and Darma. Pura buena vibra siempre

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


mmmmmmm, I like to do anything when we talk about meeting people, having fun and learn from others


I have hosted people from Greece, USA and France. I have surfed with people in Malaysia, China (almost everywhere), Philippines, Mexico and Hong Kong, and they have been very cool to me as I have been with them.

My favorite directors are Quentin Tarantino, Cuaron, Carlos Reygadas, Alejandro González Iñarritu, Terry Gilliam, Goody Allen, Michel Gondry, Ingman Bergman, David Lynch. I have seen all the movies of Audry Tatou, I love musicals. I have seen the top ten movies of China including the house of the flying daggers.

About music, my favorite band is The Beatles. I have been in concerts of Metallica, Caifanes, Mana. Jazz Festivals are the best. I love to dance Salsa, cumbia, reggaeton and Clubbing music.

My best writers are Carlos Fuentes, Alejo Carpinter, Borges, Octavio Paz, Carlos Castaneda, Sabines, Franz Kafka, Milan Kundera, entre otros más.

I don't know anything about painting, nothing about sculpture. I know a little about architecture and I would love to know more.

For theater I would say I'm a broadway person I love musicals. Plays, well I love Madam Butterfly, Carmina Burana, Midsummer night dream and a lot of new contemporary ones I've seen in Mexico.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Food in every country is so different. Cultural Shocking can be surprising, but you get used to it if you are strong enough.

Teach, Learn, Share

De todos siempre se aprende algo.
You always learn something from someone and always teach something to someone.
