About Me


Go to random places, meet random people, and experience random adventures


I was born in Costa Rica. I have a mixed upbringing between Costa Rica and United States. I really dedicated a lot of time to my hacking passion but ever since I moved to San Francisco (September 2010) I decided to create a huge balance in life. Since I moved to San Francisco I've picked up plenty of new activities and am interested in trying new ones. I enjoy talking to strangers and learning about different cultures.

I'm deeply in love with nature...


Freedoms always come first, then I work hard to enjoy and share them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I can I host, and try to surf if I have time to send requests out, but I mostly engage with CS at events in random cities.


I've hosted twice, have surfed once and have gone to many events at different cities. The experience has been only amazing.


Rock climbing, surfing, snowboarding, jogging, music, playing my guitar, listening to music 24x7, going to open mic nights, loosing myself with nature.

Philosophy and poker.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hands down... Patagonia was amazing. I spent quite a bit of time exploring it between Chile and Argentina with emphasis on the rock climbing scene.

I see a lot of amazing things in San Francisco on a regular basis, but the last thing I remember that stood out was seeing someone who I thought was a bumb get up on openmic at Hotel Utah and put on a really great performance.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach how to play the guitar, how to hack, program or do anything with computers including networking, I can show you how to snowboard, surf, rock climb and play tennis.

I'd love to learn something someone is an expert in, I believe I pick things up quickly. Up for a trade?
