About Me


Curious and Intuitive.

I was born in Lima, Perú in late 80s. Physical Theater, Aerial Acrobacy, Dancing and Mixing Electronic Music are my passions. As soon as I came out of school, went to live in New York City for half a year, where I was intercepted by a tremendous night scene. This meant a great moment of inspiration for me as I was introduced to the world of electronic music and nightclubs at my early 17. Also the experience of living abroad opened my mind and showed me the path of moving and travelling, growing through the encounter of new culture and different perspectives and mindsets. I've had the amazing oportunity to travel and play, perform or teach in cities like Berlin, Madrid, Belgrade, Sarajevo and Athens in Europe as well as in Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Lima and Mexico City in Latin America.

Looking forward to experience new cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy the vibe of the website, knowing and housing people just because reciprocity's beauty. Also sharing with other cultures, learn and develop perspectives. Reciprocity as a basis is what I believe makes every human relationship work better.

Music, Movies, and Books

I mainly enjoy House, Tech House and Techno. I am constantly listening to these genres; I like to discover new music I could mix. I also listen to Independent Rock, Pop, Hip Hop, R&B, Cumbia, Salsa and Grunge.

I love movies mainly from this gang of directors: Stanley Kubrick, Quentin Tarantino, Tim Burton, Pedro Almodóvar and Hayao Miyazaki. I will know if you read my profile by mentioning Miyazaki in your request and also why would you stay with me. Without these two texts in your request message, I’ll just reject. Thank you for reading and getting involved with your hosts on couchsurfing :)

Books that changed my life: Love in the Times of Cholera (García Marquez), The Iliad (Homero), The Odyssey (Homero), The City and Dogs, Aunt Julia and the Writer, A Chronicle of a Death Foretold (Mario Vargas Llosa), The Word of the Mute (Julio Ramón Ribeiro), Tokio Blues, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, After Dark, Kafka on the Shore (Murakami), Sostiene Pereira (Tabucchi), Blindness (Saramago), The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Kundera)
