About Me

I am a weird mixture between a chameleon, a nomad and a robot. I have spent a lot of time in my life playing sports, from semi-professional volleyball, to running, hiking, cycling or tennis. I can juggle, play darts pretty good or trick you with card tricks. Another part of me loves travelling, who doesn't here?, new things, new challenges and become a bit better every day. The serious part of me has spent many years studying, reaching everything I dreamed of and nowadays, working with really smart people in one of the best companies in the world.
As a whole, I am just a normal guy, in a good sense, trying to find his path and enjoying the little things in the way.
I love life, that's certain, I'm passionate in everything I do, excited about anything which is done with energy, passion and determination.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I participate by hosting as much as I can. Isn't that the idea? During the summer and other holiday times, my apartment in Málaga can fill up with fun travelers. Of course I also enjoy travel and couchsurfing myself!
After countless visits of people from all over the world, I can say they were positive, each unique and definitely all a learning experience. I have so many stories to tell!

Some interesting facts:
My youngest couchsurfer: 5 years old
My oldest couchsurfer: 62 years old
Maximum number of simultaneous surfers: 8
Most common surfers nationality: Poland and Germany
Number of different nationalities hosted: 🤔


I like often to go out of my comfort zone, that fills me with joy and makes me grow, and in the end of the day, made me who I am.
