About Me


Stay hungry. Stay foolish.



I'm Lisa. I was born in the US. I come from a Puerto Rican and Irish family. I have two brothers. I'm a small person. I like amateur acting, riding my bike through the city, dancing. Many many things, but I realize how important good company can make any activity fun. You wouldn't jump into an air castle with just anyone, would you? :)

I just finished working in UN peace-keeping mission in Timor-Leste for one year. A really great experience. Now I'm finished and ready to face the rest of the world.

Stuff I like to share with couchsurfing friends: at home I enjoy walks around the city, music, coffee, wine, going to a bar, meeting other friends/couch surfers, swimming at the beach, art museums or galleries, futbol games...etc is also fun.


Check out Aesop's fable "The Wind and the Sun."
