About Me


Make art and not die


Getting lost is a skill I have a hold on.

I have a calm demeanour but like getting ruffled.

I occupy plenty of my time with artsy things and thinking about projects, as well as talking about the grander scheme of things and then the smaller technical scheme of things.

I used to avoid talking about the weather, but once I took a meteorology class that has improved my small talk and so expect me to casually drop a weather prediction at a party.

I like looking at things pretty much.

It's difficult to explain yourself through this format, but what I can say is that I'm not picky and was raised to always help with the dishes.


Al mal tiempo, buena cara.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate. On couches!


So far, I've done it with the aid of familiar couches owned by friends, family, etc. I have had some really welcoming experiences as a couchsurfer, and am very happy to have this platform as a first option when traveling.


film & video, musics (there are many of them), reading, drums, walking around, sleepy bars and noisy restaurants, dangerous places, dangerous faces, swimming, aguardiente, non-abbrasive surfaces, airing out grievances, rooftops, drawing, plush grass, activism, Gasparín my bicycle, supermarkets, much coffee, docks, remembering kind of useless information, looking at houses I won't buy..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Miner's canyon, Arizona. Absurdly beautiful, no tourist posts whatsoever.

Teach, Learn, Share

I will prepare food and drink.
I can make noise upon request.
I will trade music and listen to anything.
We should definitely trade books or I will read things in tandem.
I can help you edit videos and talk about images.

I want to learn how to work with textiles, and have always welcomed casual language and slang lessons.
