About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Travel the world and share my experience through my photos and storytelling

ABOUT ME
Relaxed: I try as much as I can to be, but its just tough to control all these thoughts and ideas jumping around in my head all the time

Open Minded: Open minded enough to be able to try new things and get easily accepted anywhere in the world

Passionate: I think I get a little too passionate sometimes, working on controlling it, I just cant control how much joy I put into things that I do

Traveling: Done it since I was a baby, will keep doing it till I die and now I'm trying to make it a lifestyle

Currently: Focusing on my work at the moment to achieve stability and make extra money to travel some more

Photography: It always ahd a very special meaning to me and I would love to make it a profession some day. I enjoy sharing all the amazing things in life, specially with the less fortunate ones that are not able to discover the world as much as we do.

I did a photography project called SAHARA DREAMING recently and got lucky to have Couchsurfing write an article about it:

PHILOSOPHY

*Make the best of every moment cause no moments are ever the same
*Never burn bridge cause you never know what they might bring in the future
*Life is not about what you do, its about who you do them with
*Where there is art, there is culture, where there is culture there is peace

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I love attending CS meetings across the world, if I am in a country or city that does not have one, I like to create an event. Meeting other CSers is so much fun and exchanging my experiences with them. I love to hear about their world, their adventures and if we sometimes have same travel plans we enjoy doing them together. I also host whenever I can, if not I enjoy meeting up.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
Toured SF with a surfer. Partied with some in NYC and hosted a few other while I was still in college at UMass. Once I got to Cote D'Ivoire I hosted and made some good friends that I have seen even years later and others more regularly. Hosted and surfed with some of the best in Barcelona. Enjoyed carnival of Sitges with a very nice group of CSers from different countries. Montpelier CS was really unique, enjoyed a pillow fight and a nice party. I also hosted many of the CSers that have hosted me over the year and even got to meet their families too. And Many many many other amazing experiences...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I just traveled to my country #60 - COLOMBIA!!!
Traveling to so many countries has really opened up my mind and made me understand a few things about coexisting with each other and our environment.

The most impressive things I have seen and experienced were never the places or things that people created, its actually the people that I have met!

Teach, Learn, Share

When you feel stress, mad, hunger, tiredness, on edge or anything out of the normal, just take a moment, go outside, look at the sky and take a 3 deep breathes and feel the air and oxygen go throughout your body, let your body and nature remind you how small some worries can be :)
