About Me

ABOUT ME

I have to admit I might come off a bit cold at first, but once you get to know me better and I feel comfortable, I am a very nice, down-to-earth guy. I believe in long-lasting friendships so I can't pretend to be someone I am not. I'm not really a party guy, but I might enjoy it every now and then. When I travel, I like spending as much time walking the city as possible.

PHILOSOPHY

Forgiveness makes you grow as a human being. Stoicism is necessary. Eventually, life puts things into place. I'm nothing but a passerby, so I try to enjoy life and not worry about menial things.

Interests

Reading is something that transports me to my happy place. I absolutely love getting lost in the plot of a good book. I also love meeting friends and have dinner while we cool off playing a board game.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Paris for the Rugby World Cup 2007. I spent almost a week there with a group of 12 people. One day I had the opportunity to go for a walk on my own all along 'la Seine'. I can still remember the feeling of freedom I felt walking the bridges to 'Notre Dame' in that warm October afternoon. I was a different person when I came back to Argentina. I keep on looking for that feeling...

Teach, Learn, Share

I really like languages, so I might teach the ones I know.
