About Me


produce my next documentary about the refugee camps in Congo is going to be my next mission, but first of all i have to return to the p`lace that saw me by the first time next to the pirinees and the mediterranean, i,m in middle east!


is not going to be all about me, there is always a new chapter that has never been stamped on the magic waves of life, and what happened before are just an amount of pieces organized by the now. So this is now, i spend many years at uni to understand that you find the right teachers everytime and anywhere, we are satelites and not a disc belonging to a corporation, gravitating in a clear sky in a comic balance, observing and understanding the true origin of the elements, life, cultures, nature, spirit...and tomorrow i´ll be somewhere else surfing sunamis. Love hicking, camping, making a sort of noisy with a guitar, writing poetry, listening the concert of insects in the jungle at dawn, watching a sunset, traveling exotic countries, participate in exotic ceremonies, taking pictures, filming, reporting, a red merlot wine for dinner, a cold beer on the beach, vipassana meditation, budhism, shamanistic rituals, sailing, playing with my dog, gardening,human rights, and politicaly active versus injustice all over the globe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


right now i participate being here,i just joined now, i,m traveling in middle east and yesterday i was invited through a friend to join a couch surfing gathering, a lovely dinner in someone house here in Jerusalem, where i am now...i haven´t yet being host, and soon or later i´ll learn about the options we,ve got on the site




I don´t go very often but i like opera, in life. I like reggae,grunge, rock and alternative underground music as well and the Moonlight of Bethoven
I was vegetarian for 9 years and for a special reason i quit...soon i´ll join again the movement cause my ideals and principles are already stablished
So i like coocking, i,m a kind of frustrated ¨farmacist¨ but a happy cook, mixing lots of elements, spieces, cuting, using fire...the dream of any children
I already said that i like to make ¨noisy with my guitar¨, it can even reach the level of selfishness when i get out of this world and connect with my alter ego...a sweet form of meditation through the creation of sounds
i love to live, share and learn among tribal cultures, like the ones in the amazon, their way of life, rituals, music, history, economy, but what really make me awake and break my heart is the way they´ve been treated and demolished in the last 500 we are living the last minute of their extintion and is time for action!
On my mind is growing a project involved with a boat, so i,m planning to get a second hand boat and sail around the world by myself, be in touch with the true nature of my spirit, feel the micro and the macrocosmos inside of me, find out islands lost in the middle of nowhere along the pacific ocean, cultures, winds, suns and storms, peace and balance.
I like to grow organic vegetables every time i´ve got the occasion to build my own, work the earth with my hands, smell the earth before the sunrise, see how the power of nature change and feeds the seed day by day.
My dog is not my dog, she is herself not my posession, but we´ve got a cosmic feed back that is always transforming while rising in love together, (i don´t say her name because could hurt sensibilities from india, but i love the wife of Shiva)
Reading is another of my pleasures, in general the book must to be related in some sort about current or historical affairs, philosophi, religions, exotic societies, other ways of living, human rights, autobiographies, poetry ...
I like theatre, i was member of a performing group during 7 years, great time preparing happenings, animations or classical theatre as comedy with Goldoni or greek tragics with Sofocles...i like experimental arts as well...
I like observing wild life and flora, riding a horse, get in touch with nature as often as possible, so free camping far away from artificial light
Arqueology and visiting UNESCO sites is one more of the things i like, i already did a good job around the globe
Even if i don't do it very often i love feeling like a buble under the water while diving, i've got my open water, i did the curse in Utila, Honduras,if not the best spot probably the cheapest place in the world.
