Join Couchsurfing to see Kristopher’s full profile. It’s free!
My name is Kris and I just moved back to NYC after living in Buenos Aires for the past 6 years. I'm originally from Austin, Texas, but lived in New York City for many years before I moved to Argentina, so I know the city very well!
Traveling has always been exciting for me, and I enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures.
I really love music and I like to play the guitar and sing and write songs.
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. Someday!!
I'm gay, so please be comfortable with that if you send me a request!
