About Me


Live life as spontaneously as possible.


Huge fan of mountaintops.


I don't have the time and energy to answer this one!!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I currently don't have a place of my own, so I have asked my parents to host couchsurfers... no luck.

I will keep tryin though!


Love messing around with computers.
Really into writing and contributing to free software.

Love rainforests and tropical biomes in general. Love weather and climate prediction/modeling, especially fascinated by tropical weather and the study/prediction of atmospheric convection and its associated weather patterns.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking in Corcovado NP, Costa Rica was truly amazing, I went in ill prepared and spent 2 nights but I was the most beautiful place ever!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn to speak spanish.
I want to learn true empathy, where I can place my self in someone else's brain and not just read their mind, but experience it.
Finally and most importantly, I want to learn to make bubbles with bubble gum.
