About Me


Vivir y dejar vivir [Live and let live]


I'm an industrial engineer learning constantly from life. Every travel experience had helped me to understand cultures in so many ways and wish stay longer at the places I've been to. On the other hand, I was born in Tuluá (Colombia), which is a small city one and a half hours away from Cali. I grew up and lived there before starting the University when I decided to move to Cali for more than five years.

I like meeting cool people from every part of this crazy world, knowing about their cultures, life styles and generating a great moment to learn as much as posible. I enjoy traveling a lot specially to the places with nature because I adore getting relax and feel peace into myself. And finally I like cooking, baking, walking around the city and go grab some drinks with friends...!!!


Living always with a positive attitude in life and learn as much I can!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can participate by giving couch, sharing all kind of experiences and teaching to others about practical tips like how to increase the abilities speaking spanish, fixing typical food and other knowledges that could appear!


I started being member of CS since August, 2008 and since that moment, I´ve met so many cool people from who I still keep in contact despite the time and distance. I´ve also had special times giving couch to others and it was definitely one of the best experiences in my life and I hope continuing living this CS project!


I love walking around the cities, meeting new people, cooking food from other countries, traveling to places with so much nature, learning languages and talk about different topics with my guests and Cs people in general.
