Join Couchsurfing to see Kristopher’s full profile. It’s free!
NOTE: I'm currently living in Rio de Janeiro until March 2015!
My name is Kris and I have been living in Buenos Aires for over 5 years. I'm originally from the USA, grew up in Austin, Texas, but lived in New York City for 10 years before I moved to Argentina.
Traveling has always been exciting for me, and I enjoy having friends from different backgrounds and cultures.
I really love music and I like to play the guitar and sing and write songs. I also like meeting new and interesting people.
I have a dream to create a musical travel journal one day, writing a song in every city I go to, maybe collaborating with other musicians from that city, and then recording it there.
You can hear some of the music I've already recorded here:
Hola, soy Kris! Vivo acá en Buenos Aires, pero soy originalmente de los Estados Unidos (Nací en Texas pero viví 10 años en New York City). He vivido en Buenos Aires por 3 años pero todavía hay mucho que no he visto de la ciudad! También siempre busco más amigos, asi que escribíme si queres salir para tomar o comer algo!
Life is so amazing ! I can't believe we are all on this planet and that this is really happening ... I guess my goal is to enjoy what I can while I'm here, to feel free and help others feel free to explore life around them and themselves.
