About Me


Travelling, meeting cool and laid back people. Hiking and getting know a little bit more of local culture and history around Europe


Open minded, welcoming, hiker, writer and just sharing fun experiences! I have been very active in leftist politics and still am. Was a teacher and now looking for new opportunities in data analytics and coop projects. I also enjoy a little bit of literature and polsci but also whenever there is time enjoy a chilled and relaxed evenings watching movies, a few drinks with friends or just listening to music while cooking. Recently into data science and analytics (R is a love and hate story ;))

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet local people, but also travellers. I also like to also know how locals experience their city and how they engage with it in terms of their own identity and history. I also enjoy a good warming conversation with all kinds of people, having fun in unexpected places, visiting the historical part of the city or just enjoying a relaxing and chilled evening anywhere. I prefer to listen rather than talk :)


Travelling, concerts, running and just getting to know new places. I also enjoy running, book clubs, playing drums and light programming :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Right now I enjoy listening to Blues, Bossanova and electro mixes with rare instruments, and some post-rock music. I love to watch Argentinian films and the books I love are mainly in contemporary philosophy but also a lot of Latinamerican (Mario Vargas Llosa, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Eduardo Galeano, Beneddetti, Sepulveda, etc) and Russian literature (Dovstoevsky and Bulgakov)!
