About Me


learning new worlds


I love to travel and I'm lucky that way since I get to travel a lot. I give a lot of conference talks around the world about children, play, computers and learning. I lived in the US (Oregon and Georgia), Denmark, Sweden, France and in my home country, Uruguay. I have taught at universities and started my own business.
I talk a lot! (that's what my friends say, at least :)
Since I travel a lot, I know that what makes a trip really great is the people you ran into. It's one thing to visit a city on your own and a hugely different thing to have a local hanging out with you. That's why I try to be a good host and that's what moved me to sign up for Couch Surfing.


I can't settle for a boring job.


TV Series (Mad Men, The Office, In Treatment, Six Feet Under, 30 Rock and a long list of more)
