About Me


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 and amazing ways.


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

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, Fiction, Social and Natural Sciences, History, Maths, Arts, etc.

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


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


I have only been recieved by fellow couchsurfers, but now i moved alone i plan to receive and give back the kindness i experienced.


I've got to know couchsurfing while i was living with a friend that used to host couchsurfers and it was great. I've been hosted in several places when i traveled to europe.

Music, Movies, and 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!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Piano, guitar, Music Theory, improvisation and composition. I've learned through reading and writting the craft off journalism and currently work on it, so i can give advice on how to write an article. Also can help in humanistics.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I usually travel with my ukelele, and like making music with and for other people. I also love languaje exchanges, and practicing my english so there's a win-win there. Sharing argentinian culture and history is something I really enjoy. And i'm a fair cooker ;-)
