About Me


I'm a nice, social, respectful, affectionate and passionate guy (toma ya! 😂). I always like to meet new people, cultures and ways of life. Between my passions, I can point out travelling —very clever, Couchsurfing!—, playing music, running and cooking.

I define myself as a really curious guy: always willing to learn and make cool things!

Best things that have happened .

I really enjoy learning from people and gathering for sharing experiences & knowledge. If you identify yourself as member of any community, just hit the button and talk me! :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted lots of people in Málaga and my hometown. Anytime someone comes, I feel like a tourist in my city, and we usually enjoy great times together exploring it, cooking food of different parts of the world or just chillin' with my friends. Check out recommendations bellow ;)

In 2012, I surfed in USA with my friend David, staying with 7+ Couchsurfers and having great moments. I've surfed some other places around Europe, America and Asia ;)


I love travelling, playing music, biking, programming, organising events, meeting people, talking, walking…

I've been developing software since I was 9 yr. old, and I enjoy it TOO MUCH.

Music, Movies, and Books

As half-musician I really enjoy any kind of music that makes sense, and what I hear definitely depends on my mood… but I could describe myself as fan of Red Hot Chili Peppers, MGMT, Kakkmaddafakka, Ramones, U2, Queen, Eels, La Pegatina, Love of Lesbian…

I also enjoy cinema, and watching a movie is ALWAYS a good plan for me. Between my favourite films I should point out Kill Bill, Spirited Away, Inglorious Basterds, The Social Network, The Nightmare Before Christmas, all Ocean's, Amelie, Snatch, Mr. Nobody, The Internship, Toy Story, V from Vendetta, Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction, Los Amantes del Círculo Polar, Taxi Driver, A Bronx Tale… Between my favourite directors I can point out Quentin Tarantino and Woody Allen.

In between my favourite TV series I should highlight Breaking Bad, Californication, Sherlock, The Big C, House, New Girl, Castle…

I enjoy reading about lots of topics, but nowadays I enjoy very much reading essays. Some cool books I've enjoyed — w/o any particular order — are Donnie Brasco, "Qué ven los astronautas cuando cierran los ojos", Sherlock Holmes, autobiographies of cool people — like Things the Grandchildren Should Know (Mark Everett) or An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth (Chris Hadfield)—…

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had a radio program when I was 14 yr old, where I interviewed some of my idols. Then I worked as Sound Technician for live events in order to get money and travel to California (my childhood dream). When I was 16, I took all my money, and made it to California! That definitely opened my mind, and made me be myself. Since then I've visited several countries, done a lot of cool stuff and met a lot of kind people all over the world!

Countries I’ve Visited

Countries I’ve Lived In
