About Me


Learn from others to make me a better person


My partner and I live in beautiful Seattle. Recently moved here from amazing Toronto where we lived for 3 years. We previously lived in Auckland, New Zealand for 3 years as well. Every place is different and as always has its pros and cons. Nonetheless we have been lucky to have great friends along the way.


I strongly believe that things happen for a reason. Sometimes we struggle to understand why things don't happen the way we want them, but later on we realized why. It's a the circle of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only hosted 1 person in Toronto and it was a great experience. Now that we are settled in Seattle, we would like to host more people at our place and show this incredible city. We are looking forward to a great intercultural experience.


We enjoy the outdoors, camping, hiking and skiing. While in New Zealand, we had the opportunity to go to amazing places. I bike to work. I need to start running back again. When winter comes, skiing takes priority.
We also love dogs. We used to have 3, but now we are down to one Mastiff/Lab.

We also enjoy dinning, movies, traveling, biking, running, work out. Toronto has an amazing system of ravines. I really like to go for a walk or go running and get lost in them.

Music, Movies, and Books

Although I am latin, I love country music. New country music. I also like alternative,soft rock, latin, classical to relax.

As far as movies go, I am pretty much into anything, adventure, drama, suspense, docs.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had the great opportunity of bungee jumping in NZ. One of the most exhilarating experience of my life. It was short lived, but well worthy. Next in the agenda: Sky diving!!!
