About Me


My favorite word is curiosity


I am eager to travel. I have been in Marocco, France, Bosnia, Montenegro, Croatia, Italy, Spain, England and Albania. I have traveled some of this countries in auto stop, during the summers. In other I have been working as a game tester, waiter, teacher and public relations for a theater. I have written two books: one about a peripheral condition of three authors, two of them poets and one of them philosopher; the other is a play. Currently, I live in Philadelphia, PA. I am a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania. I teach Spanish. I specialize in games, the ludic aspects of life in History, mainly.


I do not have personal philosophy. I live in the situation I am, that´s all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have done couch-surfing in Marocco, the Balcans and some European countries. One of the stories that comes right now to my mind is when I happened to need to vomit during the night but I couldn't move because the room was plenty of people. That day I dreamed with vivid colors.´Why this story has came to my mind a Tuesday at 11:00 a.m is a complete mystery to me.


One of my main interest is to advocate for the elimination of the question about interests in profile writing. Contradictory as it may sound, I don´t think that it can account for the interest a person has.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite film is the one I´m watching when I´m watching it. The same happens to be true with books or almost any other cultural object.
