About Me


travel the world with my partner in crime


Very laid back. Currently live/work in Bossier City/Shreveport, Louisiana. I love traveling when funds allow. Huge fan of EDM/music festivals/live shows. Born in Nicaragua, raised in the South- very much a southerner with a twist ;)


Spreading peace & love- be it through helping someone out with a place to crash or buying you a shot when I see you out. You are your own highest authority. Try my best not to be an asshole.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In 2010 I met some CSs in NYC during Labor Day for a music festival and had a blast. Made awesome new friends. I've hosted several times now and enjoyed the hell out of it. Hope to surf some after grad school.


Music Festivals- all of them. Linguistics- Chomsky is god. Fashion- when in doubt, freak'em out. Spain- Paí­s Vasco! Louisiana Hot Sauce- the best. Almodóvar- brilliant. Carl Sagan- boss.
