About Me

CURRENT MISSION

why can't we give love give love give love give love give love give love give love?

ABOUT ME

I love to keep doing and learning about as much as possible and think doing so with/from other people is usually the best way. Conversation and listening are my favorite things, and when this involves fun foods/drinks/walks - even better!

I am a huge believer. I believe in people and in change and have little control over my often naive faith in humanity. I consider myself a passionate peace-seeker, artist, musician, athlete, writer-rambler, photographer, among many other mundane titles...
Specific attention grabbers include random artsy projects, soccer/yoga/volley, la Amazonía/Africa, social & environmental justice...

and of course spontaneous 1 minute dance parties/sing-a-longs

Si quieres aprender sobre mi familia en ecuador, la gente de la Amazonía Ecuatoriano...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

cultural exchange is one of the small steps that is crucial to spreading peace and this project is such a great catalyst for sharing and soul-spreading

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Had my first experience in Lima, Peru. Evaded deportation and ended up in Peru - where I was literally saved and embraced by the loveliest chicos y chicas in Lima. Met new friends from all over the world there and don't know how I would have made it those 3 weeks in Peru without couchsurfing :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

our Peruvian friend in Pisac, Peru who brought us to see the sunrise where his indigenous family does their yearly summer solstice sun ceremonies and played his flute as we walked away towards the magnificent deserted Incan city.
