About Me


To explore, interact, and exchange life experiences with people throughout each continent I set foot in...


35, Gay Latino man and I'm ready to explore the rest of the world... I have been infected with the travel bug, and there's no way of getting rid of it! ;) I love meeting new people, enjoy having conversations with many different people from diverse backgrounds, I'm ridiculously loyal and affectionate, I love to go out dancing, and I am especially eager to set foot on every continent in the world before I die... :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Upon returning from Brazil in 2009, I was able to host people in my home... I have LOVED the experience: showing people around my "town"... Los Angeles, being the home of over 16 million people spread across almost 500 square miles! Hollywood, the beaches, the glitz, the glamour, the fun times to be had! In 2010, I moved down to San Diego and am loving experiencing another wonderful city in California. I hope 2015 gives me the chance to get to meet others and share my life experience with them!


I had an amazing CouchSurfing experience with one of the most incredible, trusting guys I have ever met... Leo, in Brazil, is such a beautiful person inside and out, that I have grown to love him as a brother of mine! I miss you Leo, I will be back in Sampa soon! Brazil was amazing!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak English and Spanish fluently, I come from a bilingual and bicultural household which I would love to share conversations regarding this with others... Additionally, I am a teacher in a primary school and have been doing so for the last 9 years. I also have training in Computer Networking, and love the field of technology and everything that comes with it! During my trip to Brazil, I LOVED learning some Portuguese and appreciating all the culture.
