About Me


Dejar de estar, empezar a ser.


After my extended youthful exploration and vagabonding through South America came to an end, I decided to set up shop at a slightly more permanent residence in New York. Surrounded for most of my life by chirping crickets and croaking bull frogs, the blasted Reggeton beats of passing cars and screeching tires outside my window have become my new sleep-soundtrack while in Brooklyn. I'm excited to embark on this new adventure with piece of mind newly found in stability rather than the chaos of transience.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


From surfing at a robot-laden frat house in Boston, to hosting other globally adventurous and endlessly curious minds in my own humble abode, CouchSurfing has been nothing but a positive force in my life.


Increasing world happiness.
