About Me

I am based in Toronto but travel every couple of months for long periods of time to different countries to film videos for my Youtube channel which focuses on culture. I love trying new things, meeting foreigners and learning about their culture, food and dancing. I strongly value genuine people, simplicity, experiences over things and of enjoying the present moment instead of trying to capture it as we so often do nowadays.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think travel is all about the experiences you have and people make up those experiences. Connecting with locals is the best way to get an authentic experience and CS is perfect for that.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love indie electronica, but have a soft spot for regaeton (or just anything Latin really).
From the series, I would say my favorite one is Black Mirror. There are too many movies to list but I do love a lot of 'classics' I guess they would call it nowadays like Forest Gump or the Midnight Express.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Quit my job to start a love project that has since turned into a full-time job. I absolutely love what I do and the freedom that comes with it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some English, Spanish.. and if you're feeling extra adventurous - Russian.
