About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Ocupar America Central, 6 paises de America del Sur, 6 de Europa y 6 de Asia.

ABOUT ME

I´m curious, friendly, passionate about everything I do, more rational than emotional. Enjoy going out on weekdays and hang out at a house on weekend, not a big fan of night clubs (salsa, techno, etc). Like having philosophical conversations about life, different cultures or travelling.

I grew up in Buenos Aires. Went to Europe for 6 months after finishing university and ended up living in Madrid for 3 years, which become my second home in the world. In late 2010, the same way as Europe, as I was in Buenos Aires just "passing by", I felt I needed to stay, and I´ve been in this city for the last 3 years.

PHILOSOPHY

"I don´t like the idea of dying at all. If I could live an extra 500 years I would gladly do so, and ask: 'Couldn´t you throw in a few more?'"
- Adolfo Bioy Casares

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
- Paulo Coelho

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Enjoying some group activities while living in Madrid. Hosting people now that I have my own place in Buenos Aires.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I give marketing classes at university but you can get a few for free! Also, I can teach you how to make some delicious chocolate brownies and other stuff. Basic tango steps (still trying to find time to learn more)

Share: I´m not a musician but I like doing noises with instruments, I have an electric guitar, an ukulele, a harmonica and a flamenco box at my house. Still trying to find my instrument cause I suck at all of these.

Learn: I am very enthusiastic about learning new languages and cultures, but mainly about learning anything that you do best.
