Earn a living doing what I love with a creative and passionate community & Travel the World
If you'd ask my friends about me, they'd probably say I'm someone who never seems to do anything like everyone, who often tries to push the limits and explore the new and unfamiliar.
I'm a deeply curious person, whose main purpose in life is to experience happiness doing what I'm passionate about and challenge the various obstacles that appear in the journey.
We are all here for a reason and have a special thing to bring to this World. Personal life's goal: Reaching a balance between the right brain (inspiration, creativity, ideas, feelings, etc.) and left brain (putting things in action and dealing with the material aspect of the world)
To create (art or other ventures), one must reach a similar balance of inspiration and hard work & discipline.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Looking forward to surf in future travels.
I've liked meeting new people and sharing new perspectives on different aspects of life.
I have yet to be hosted somewhere in the world but plan on doing so very soon.
