About Me

Please remember that is a platform for cultural exchange and hospitality, not for dating. Let's keep our interactions respectful and focused on sharing experiences and connecting with fellow travelers :)

I'm an environmental engineer and volunteer, with high inclination for personal and professional growth, critical and analytical thinking, creativity for problem-solving, achievement of personal and group achievements and goals. My journey as a volunteer has been a significant chapter in my life. It has influenced my perspective, grown my leadership skills, and reaffirmed my commitment to making a positive impact.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I want to do this experience for international volunteers and occasionally know other places in this opportunity to explore a new culture and meet new people.


I really like to spend time with myself for running or reading books but also I appreciated spending time with my friends and for the same reason I was looking for culture programs or carnivals or reunions that involve dancing.

  • running
  • sci-fi
  • gastronomy
  • book reading
  • dancing salsa
  • anime and manga

Music, Movies, and Books

I really enjoy listening to pop/rock music and salsa, also I like to read biographies, dramas, historical and adventures books. On the other hand, the only category that I don't like for movies is scary or thrillers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I realized that for almost 2 years I was able to help a community with the volunteer and maybe change the chip for any for the kids, I felt that sensation for hope.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have skills to identify environmental problems of the natural environment, to diagnose and evaluate the risk and environmental impact, also I love charity work and my enthusiasm in the area of logistics because I like to organize events and be detail orientation. Also I can show the city of Medellin in a fun, cultural and environmental way and practice Spanish if the person speaks English.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm disciplined and organized person, so I take care of and look after pets, help clean the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas, help with general housekeeping and help to prepare, finish and serve meals
