About Me


to get closer and closer to living a happy zero waste, minsumerist lifestyle.


I am a philosophy student, aspiring ICT4D community worker, and I am obsessed with food, conversations and pretty things.
I'm not a reliable source for nightlife, but I can share my lists of Mexican experiences you should have if you ever visit.


I may be dead tomorrow, so I will try to be happy today, and to help others be so, too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By giving info, and by salsa-dancing. Seriously.


Because of CouchSurfing, I once stepped into this tiny room packed with people, and I salsa danced with a fair number of them. I liked it!


I spend my time on the internets, learning about and with people, eating (a lot), learning about community projects (and working in them!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Doing an interview with a woman who earns less than two dollars for three days' worth of work.
2. Walking through the practices of my favorite holiday, day of the dead in Mexico, and seeing people my age appreciate the value of such an old tradition.
3. Managing to try around 10 different gelatti and 5 pasta dishes in, um, about three days in Italy.
