About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Conocer Argentina, mi nueva casa

ABOUT ME

I have been living by my own since I was 17 years old.
Cinematography is my passion, everyday I re-discover that my camera is a bridge to a state of happiness and relaxation.
Meeting people from other cultures is one of the things I enjoy the most, listening to travelers have made me feel closer to parts of the world I want to go to.

PHILOSOPHY

Ser feliz con poco, y con mucho también.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I started hosting travelers with my best friend when we were renting a big room in the financial district of Panama. I built some very good friendships, then one day I said: "What if I go to Argentina where most of my CS friends are?". So here I am now, studying what I love, and being happy.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been member of HospitalityClub.org the last 4 years, and had lost of very good experiences with more than 40 guests since 2007. Respect, honesty, tolerance and hospitality are my biggest learnings.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I made a coverage which was broadcasted two time on national television.
I went to Bocas del Toro when I was a minor just with $2 USD and spent one week there while my semester final tests in high school.

I moved to Buenos Aires with U$300 and here I am!

Teach, Learn, Share

I dance ! dance!

I know how to do Macrame, a technique to make bracelets very popular between mochileros/hippies (?)

In Panama City people don't use directions such as north, south, numbers or street names; so be prepared to get lost.

Costa Rica
