About Me


Learning to Fly


I was born in Cali, Colombia, between mango, chontaduro and salsa. Since I was little, my parents taught me to travel. We lived 5 years in Lausanne (Switzerland) and traveled throughout Europe and finally back to the tropics. At 23 I decided to follow the trip on my own and moved to Buenos Aires. I spent three years in the metropolis but after three years, I needed a change. I wanted to fulfill a dream I had, live in Patagonia. I went to Bariloche the first of October 2010 and I stayed there for eighteen months. Then back to Cali. I recently came to France to make a PhD research on tropical soundscapes and biodiversity monitoring at the Muséum d'histoire naturelle.


Let Love Rule!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To host and be hosted without asking anything in return, to remember that "happiness is only real when is shared".


Music has been my guide and I like to know all it's diversity, from natural and urban soundscapes, to electronic music, passing by all kind of ethnic compositions.
Musica, musica y musica, literatura, cine, biología, entomología, bucear, bañarme en el río, malabares en la playa, el piano, la guitarra, una bajada en longboard, los arboles, la selva, la lluvia y un buen café, la mar y sus olas, la improvisación y la libertad.

Traveling during three days in a boat through the Amazon basin, sleeping in a hammock.
Viajar durante tres días en un barco por el Amazonas. Desde Yurimaguas a Iquitos. Pasar el día viendo el paisaje cambiar y la noche sobre una hamaca.
