About Me


IT Professional. I like music, cooking, reading, taking photos, horror movies, tenis, swimming, webdesigning, and drawing. Into everything that has to do with computers, science and geeky stuff.

Now travelling around the world: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, USA, and Europe (haven't decided where just yet). I will be in Europe from December to mid March so if you got any ideas, feel free to share!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Helping you know my city, my province and my country. I've traveled a lot here in Córdoba so if you want to know where to go, or some information about that little pseudo-ghost town you read about on the internet, be sure I can help you.

I've met great people thanks to CoushSurfing and I'm always eager to know more about cultures from all over the globe.


Technology, movies, photography, theorizing, creating neologisms, internet, music, nature, camping, reading, going out, dancing, theaters, travel, travel, travel!

Music, Movies, and Books

My friends consider that I'm the worst movie critic that ever existed. I find something nice in every movie. So I like them all! My preferred genres are horror, action, and adventure.I

like all kinds of music (from Aphex Twin to Madonna, from Sarah Brightman to Oasis, from Depeche Mode to Edith Piaf). See it for yourself -and don't panic- at http://www.lastfm.es/user/jaunis.

Books. Saramago. H.P. Lovecraft. E.A. Poe. Stephen King. IT nerdy stuff (Windows Server, Active Directory and SQL mainly)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

New Year's Eve in Rio de Janeiro. One of the most overwhelming experiences, ever.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: - Everything you can find in a Libro Gordo de Petete (Google it); - How to enhance your face with Photoshop and don't get caught; - Human body stuff; - How to make a choripan (google it again); - How to make a smoke bomb (a safe one, no the rip-your-hands-off type);

Learn: I love learning new stuff. So from the most useful to the most useless knowledge it's always welcome.

Share: Ideas, friends, foods, drinks, parties, theories, places.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Guidance, fun, videogames. I'm the geeky-indoor type of guy. Don't pick me if you plan to spend all your day doing outdoor activities with your host (me). I'm pretty much relaxed and non-demanding. And if you want to surf my couch, you should address me as "Flaming Homo" in your message, something like "Dear Flaming Homo, I want to surf your couch!".

Yes, I'm gay. There's been a lot of debate on whether one should make sexual orientation / identity a public matter here, I think I should. It's fair for you and it's fair for me.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Czech Republic, Germany, Mexico, Paraguay, Romania, Turkey, United States, Uruguay
