About Me


Discere et tradere.


Extroverted guy, always looking for new experiencies and new people. Currently I work at Mexico's biggest university, teaching Latin Literature and Latin Language. I study a MA in Linguistics.
I enjoy having a cup of tea, a glass of wine or just fresh water and talking about anything with new people. I like to discover the way people lives in different countries.


We all are, as said Seneca, parts of a great unique body. I like to give everything I can to make a better world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can show surfers my favorite places in Mexico City, specially those for having nice food.


Just had a experience offering a couch for a norwegian guy, I felt very good to help him having a place to stay and learning about his experiences.


Classical Philology

Music, Movies, and Books

This is, perhaps, the most difficult to list. I like action and art movies, I can stay for a long time watching Passolini or just laughing at absurd movies like White Chiks. I like to read, but I left books at the middle or half.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being successful in my academic carreer, meeting interesting people and places. Finding new ways to be happy everyday.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to talk a better Italian and a better English, I can teach Latin, Ancient Greek and too much about Mexican and Classical World History.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can show them this wonderful city, we can have a tea, a coffee, a mexican traditional meal, a lot of things to do!

Countries I’ve Visited

Argentina, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In
