About Me


To learn new thing and make new things. To help and live the people that surround me. And to eat and dance as much as I possibly can.


I'm an artist and arts organizer from the border (Tijuana - San Diego). I recently lived in New York for a bit, and Los Angeles before that. I love home and being away from it. I enjoy going places, seeing things, and taking many pictures. There are many things I still need to try, but I am prone to enjoyment. I like movies, food, dancing, and puppies.

I organize Tijuana Zine Fest ( and make visual work in illustration, photography, and installation art (


I believe caring for one another and asking for help are the most subversive and necessary acts one can carry out.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've traveled in Brazil in Argentina thanks to CS. I'm still waiting for my hosting experience, come stay with me!


I love and miss the people I've met on CS <3
