About Me


I've traveled quite a bit and I work with people and languages; that says a lot about me already. I'll leave it up to the people that know me to say more.


If it ain't broken, open it up and see what's inside.

C'est dans les moments de crise qu'on se rend compte jusqu'à quel point on est fragile et on est fort.

Inspirar es más difícil que convencer. También es mucho mejor.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a few people in Montreal, and I have surfed in Ottawa and Vancouver. I have also participated in some of the activities organized by CS groups in MTL and Madrid.


A good story. Bien racontée. No importa el medio.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Le tour du monde en 80 jours.

5000 over the sea level, view over the Andes in Boyaca, Colombia, only the subtle wispper of the wind sweeping over the snowy peaks.

4 days. 1700 Km. Roadtrip from Bogotá to the Caribbean Coast. Awaken by the pain in my neck. My arms and legs too numb to attempt any change of position. Opened my eyes and the ocean was there, ever larger as the mountains moved aside to let the blue swallow me.

La première fois que j'ai vu New York apparaitre derrière un manteau de feuilles rouges.

Alucinar por deshidratación al escalar la pirámede del Sol en Teotihuacán, cuando la divinidad llega a su cenit y mi sombra se recoje bajo mis pies.
