About Me

I am pretty busy but do like to host when I can. However, to me couchsurfing is more than just being a couch. I am pretty laid back and don't have many rules, but I use CS to meet people, not just be a hotel. If you are coming in late and leaving early the next day I probably will say no. If you want to hang out/chat/learn then write me and I will host if available.


Almost done with medical school. Finding adventure whenever I can and meeting new people as always.
I love the outdoors! Hiking and skiing and trekking and rock climbing! Also love beers and dancing and live music as well.


Don't take yourself too seriously!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hopefully I can enjoy meeting new people and visiting new places. In the meantime hopefully I can meet some people and do some surfing.


It is now an addiction! Todos son muy buena onda!


Anything outdoors but especially skiing, snowboarding and rock climbing. I really want to learn to para-glide. My professional interests include global health and medicine.
Esquiar, escalar, bailar (no tengo talento pero me gusta tratar), trekking, libros, medicina...

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Good ones, does not matter the genre, but I do like me a silly comedy. Spaceballs and Grandma's boy come to mind.
Music: Blues, Alternative, Classical, Reggaeton, Electronica, anything good really. Depends on my mood and activities.

Books: Scifi and biographies of historical characters are my favorite I suppose.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have scuba dived with Barracuda, helped build an orphanage, caught air on a windsurfer, knocked myself out on a jungle gym, skied some fresh powder, graduated, failed, danced the night away, rode an elephant, skydived (dove?), I have fallen and gotten back up again!... and more coming!
