About Me


To reach a state of fulfillment where I will be so satisfied with my life that I no longer fear death


I have been in science and clinical research for the last 9 years but I am changing paths and I am starting medical school. I want to explore the world but there are so many Couchsurfing is a blessing. I love to meet new people, but I really enjoy getting to know them more personally. Everyone has a story and I want to hear all of them. My favorite way to experience a new place is by listening to recommendations by the local people. I can't wait to surf your couch...


Life is a constant learning experience. I believe we should all work towards being the ideal person in our own mind, whatever that may be. This should lead to happiness which is good for the person and everyone around him/her. I believe in changing the world through education! Not only the one which comes from the classroom.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


There's a lot of really cool people that CS and they're all easy to talk to. The people who have hosted me are always so cool and helpful. I can't wait to host others.


A lot...I love music and dancing. I have performed as a salsa dancer and taught some basic classes. I also love food, culture, living on the edge, meeting new people and especially great conversation. Really, I love new, exciting and enjoyable experiences!

Music, Movies, and Books

Classics appeal to me most, except for this one awesome book KAFKA WAS THE RAGE by Anatole Broyard. It really affected wonderful and horrible ways simultaneously.
Otherwise: The Great Gatsby, The Metamorphosis, The Age of Innocence (Best Ending Ever), The Apologia by Plato, Plato's Republic, Sister Carrie, The Catcher in the Rye, Man's Search for Meaning, The Iliad
I love em all (not really)
I love it all (also not really)
