About Me


To meet new people and new cultures all around the world, and of course to be able to share my city with a lot of travelers


"Viajamos para cambiar, no de lugar, sino de ideas"

I love music, i used to have a band, i love meeting new people and making a lot of friends, i look forward to host interesting people in my appartment, i love reading, i'm very easygoing and i've had the opportunity to travel around Europe. i love to hang out with my friends. I think that the family is the most important thing.


if you have the right motives you will have the correct results.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting people and sharing my culture with the world, sharing experiences and quality time with all the cool people out there.


pfff really hard to say there have been good and bad experiences.

Bad: That people think that u have the obligation to host them and they treath u as if they are making a favor to u, or found people that just want to check my city on their list of the places they have been, really shameful. Also i cannot deal with people who does not read the cs profile and then ask to be hosted.


To had been able to meet people only a couple of days people that i really can consider friends now!, people with true vision of the world, real travalers with great goals and perspective. they are only a few but for them all the effort is valid. Also to find CS friend when now is me the one coming to their countries is an amazing experience

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To study Gastronomy and Mathematics , some people say they are not related but i really like to have different perspectives.

Teach, Learn, Share

As a chef i know different kinds of meals, and ingredients, i'm an expert cook so i could teach that to other people. I'm a musician too , i play different instruments i guess someone could be interested in that and of course i could teach languages.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My own personal experiences as a host, nice conversations, mexican food hahaha, some of my music why not?, maybe some martial arts moves and of course a good friendship.

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Guatemala, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, United States, Uruguay
