About Me


I'm a cactus-lover and a home brewer.

I love cooking!


I think life is to be lived with love. Past doesn't bother me, I have a real bad memory. Future isn't here yet, so lets live everything NOW.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting the most of the time, but lately also surfing with great people in Germany.


I've been hosting people near Mexico City's airport for a couple of years now. My experience has been as a host most of the time, but I would like to increse my experience as a surfer!


I'm extremly fond of cacti and succulent plants in general. I'm also interested in music, wild parties and any kind of unexpected (good) experiences.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love ambient, less danceable electronic music, metal, dubstep and any kind of music with sweet female vocals.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've grown thousands of cacti from seed which as the years passed eventually flowered and yielded fruits and seeds themselves.

That's amazing for me.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've been teaching Spanish for a couple of years, so I can always share language skills.

I'm a cactus lover, if you ever need to know a good recipe for a cactus soilmix, germination tips, grafting techniques and general maintenance in the greenhouse, count with me!

I really LOVE cooking! my friends tell I'm a good cook, and I always like to show how to prepare great sushi rolls or mexican dishes.

I'm also a professional translator. I spend many hours a day translating technical stuff, so if you have something interesting/fun that has to be translated into spanish I could be of some help.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Lately I started brewing at home. Most of the time I can offer great beer!!
