About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I think we’re here to experience life in ways as diverse as we can. If you’re respectful and brave enough to leave you’re prejudges behind, getting to know different people and cultures opens your mind to appreciate the world in new w

ABOUT ME

I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Former philosophy student and present Music student and teacher.

I love art in all it's expressions, from Painting to Cooking. I think there's something profundly positive about creative manifestations in general and everyone should be free to express themselves in any way even if they think they're "not good at it" (wich by the way, i think it's not possible). There are few things i enjoy more than sharing creative experiences with other people.

I love conversation, traveling and making music with everything that falls into my hands. I also love silence and the noises the city produces at nigh.

Really like sports (even if they're not my best hability), love riding my bike and being outside. Love Camping, travelling, knowing different people and experiencing life as joy and sharing.

I read a lot, and i'm courious about almost anything, Social and Natural Sciences, History, Maths, Arts.

I think i'm a strange mix between a contemplative introspective spirit and a very active and passionate heart.

PHILOSOPHY

Share and give all you have to give, but don't force other to receive.

At the end of the day you'll regret more the things you didn't do than the ones you did. It's ok to try.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now i'm about to travel to europe for the first time. When i come back i'll do my best to receive people when my house is done (we're currently working on it).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Spent a couple of days living in a friend's house while she was hosting a couchsurfer.

Interests

Traveling, learning, sharing.

Music, Movies & Books

My favourite Books, Movies, and Records are the ones i haven't read,seen or heard yet. They're around the corner waiting for me to find them.

I like Rock music (like Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin and argentinian rock musicians like Spinetta and Charly Garcìa among others), Jazz (for example Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, THelonius monk), Contemporary (John Cage, Steve Reich), and traditional music from all over the world.

Some books to mention could be Cesar Vallejo's "Los Heraldos Negros", Ray Bradbury's "Martian Cronicles", "Free play" by Stephen Nachmanovich and Julio Cortazar's "Un Tal Lucas"

About movies,y love lots and lots of them. From the top of my head y can think "Spring, Summer, Autumn,Winter..and Spring", "Mr. Nobody", "A Clockwork orange" and "2001, a Space Oddisey"

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The Arrayanes Wood, in the south of Argentina. Amazing!
