About Me


Looking to experience different cultures and traveling! :P


I am a friendly guy. I was born in Manhattan, NYC but I have lived most of my life in Mexico. I like traveling, reading, listening to music and getting to know people from all round the world. I speak English, Spanish and French fluently and I also can speak a little Italian and German. I love languages :)


My personal phrase is Carpe Diem, Tempus Fugit, which in Latin means Seize the day, the time escapes. I believe in being friendly and kind to people and in sharing and living the best you can :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like getting involved in events, trips to new places, trying new things and sharing my knowledge with the world ;)


I have so far surfed 2 times and hosted some friends!


Reading, traveling, photography, running, sleeping. eating and trying new things (that won't hurt me or others of course) :P

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading, some of my favorite authors (in no particular order): JK Rowling, Paulo Coelho, Carlos Fuentes, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Ray Bradbury..... the list goes on on and on.

I love all kinds of music and discovering new genres. I love different music, from pop to classical, from experimental to alternative rock, from electronic to folk.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The moment I arrived to Europe for the first time and also when I first went to visit the subterranean caves in Cancun, Mexico :) There are many other places that have left me awestruck, though :D My year of studies in Paris and all the friends I have made.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am an English teacher. I am also a random fact collector so I might be able to tell you something curious :D I am also a geek and tech wiz, so you can count on me helping you figure out technology or anything of the sort ;)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am new to Denver, so if you come and want to hang out and discover something new let me know! :)
