About Me


To study my PhD and discover the wonders of Finland.


I finished my master (Environmental Engineering) at the Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg. I made a stay in Denmark and Portugal. After working at the Embassy of Austria in Mexico, I started my PhD in April in Finnland on Biorefineries.
Optimistic, black-humorish, passionate, Leo.
I studied in Mexico City Chemical Engineering at the best and most important university there: UNAM.I like going out for a cup of coffee, going to the movies or spending an evening reading a good book with a glass of wine... like an old champ. I like to hang out with friends. I love eating, I like all kinds of cheeses with wine. I like beer... a lot.

Always happy to make new pals.


Everything will be ok in the end.
if it's not ok,
it's not the end.


Let the right one in
Let the old dreams die
Let the wrong ones go
They cannot do
What you want them to do

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like meeting people from any part of the world. I have hosted and I have stayed at couchsurfers. Unfortunately at the moment I live at the Student dorm but soon I will get my own flat.


So far so... super good!

visited 35 states (15.5%)


I'm not very good at promotional self-description, but I like: jogging, whodunit plot-driven novels, sleeping and other forms of idleness, travel. Movies, music, chemistry, beer and wine (I think I have said that already...), fruits and vegetables, environment! I collect sugar bags from coffee shops/restaurants/your granny's/etc... :-) I know.. it's a little bit strange, but that's my guilty pleasure.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I loved going to the Niagara falls when I was in Junior High School. It was overwhelming seeing how nature has so much power.
