About Me

I am finishing my contract as an economics professor in the USA to transition to Costa Rica. I enjoy learning pretty much everything that catches my attention. Physically active almost always, either skateboarding, yoga, running, calisthenics or soccer.
Trilingual and interested in seeing the world, so far I’ve been to 10 countries and want to hit 30 by 30.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that a person experiences true culture when traveling and meeting the locals. It’s a true view of different regions, eating authentic local foods. Genuine conversations, learn the issues that affect different parts of the world. Seeing the world with out filters and meeting new people, is my life goal
