About Me


Wanting to organize some urban hikes in NYC this Spring


I'm easy going and really enjoy experiencing things with others. I like eating tasty things, enjoy long walks exploring and get out hiking whenever I can (which isn't very often).

I travel a lot for work within the US, so find myself in some random places sometimes


The future is to be achieved, not predicted.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I started using couch surfing while I was in the Middle East 12 years ago . I had some really good experiences there and made some great friends.I had a great experience in Germany over Christmas surfing with a great host who also hosted 6 other surfers for a Christmas dinner. A wonderful and random experience to be sure. Living in NYC I was very involved in a lot of events such as Burger nights and BBQ's, plus hiking and others. and I sometimes host the weekly Tuesday meetup.


Its really a great tool for seeing the world and meeting great people. I'm also enjoying making connections to people around town and as we pass through different cities. Couch surfing saved Christmas, twice.


I love Futbol (my favorite team is FC Barcelona), traveling, good food, good wine, and I think most of all just hanging out with friends. I´m very socially stimulated so I am at my best around others.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really like to read, but I don´t do it enough. Lately I most enjoy non-fiction. I´ve become a nerd for knowledge and information.

I´m not too picky about music, although it does depend on my mood. But I pretty much listen to everything. Not a big metal, drum and bass or techno fan.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I visited the Galapagos Islands, one of the most amazing and unique places I've seen.

Another highlight is walking underneath a glacier, there's just nothing quite like it.
