About Me

I think it's quite difficult to describe in few words the complexity of what a person is. I consider myself an extremely friendly guy, willing to meet up new friends around the world. I'm easy going and respectful. Open-minded. A bit intellectual but fun.

Also I try to keep things organized and clean. I just don't like mess and dirt. I do not have TOC thought. XD
I'm studying to be a film maker so I love things related to movies, photography, acting and arts in general. Also I like philosophy, cultural anthropology (I think it is misspelled) and languages.

In my life I took piano lessons, sang at school's choir, started acting classes, photography until I decided to combine all that with filming.

I got a twin brother (we are not identical though) but still don't know if that's a relevant fact.

I love meeting people from other countries, I've got a few friends who were exchange students down here.
I also love teaching and I consider myself really patient, and love sharing what I know. I help at college as student assistant (don't know if it exist a translation). It consist in helping teachers explain subjets in lower courses, and participate as teacher on training.

2017 - Started Yoga lessons and it changed my life. Now I'm really interested in travelling to India in the future.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm travelled arround europe on Oct-nov 2015. I did a little of CS during my trip and it was awesome. I'd love to host here in Argentina but I do not live alone so It is really difficult. But I'd love to meet and show you arround if you're coming to Cordoba- Just let me know in advance.

Music, Movies, and Books

A Beatles' fan. XD
I also like what is called "indie/alternative rock" and some electronic and pop music.

I used to read more often than I usually do nowadays. I like Le Pétit Prine (Antoine Exupery), Dostoievsky, Julio Cortázar, Jorge Luis Borges, 100 años de Soledad, etc.

My favorite movie is Raspberry Reicht (Bruce La Bruce) but from 2017 it's compiting with Raúl Ruiz filmography (Chilean director). "Cómedie de l'innocence" and "Généalogies d'un crime" are my favourites films also.
I love Xavier Dolan's movies (or I'm just in love with him, I think xD), Almodóvar, Lucrecia Martel (Best argentinian female director, you'd definitely have to watch her movies), some Woody Allen's Films, Celestino Campusano (very interestin Argentinian independent director), and I could write a wide list.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I shooted a film in 2015 around north-west of Argentina. It was amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some Spanish and how to drink Mate (argentinian strong green tea where everybody shares the same cup -it sounds disgusting for the rest of the worl, but it makes argentinian to have the spirit of sharing insde us) XD.
I'd like to learn some french and practice my English. I also love to learn about places and cultures.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Argentinian sense of humour and dishes. Give it a try to "Milanesas", Mate infusion, empanadas, etc.
