About Me

Wheelchair user, I love to travel and meet different people. I am a scientifically-minded person, there's more poetry in how nature really works to resort to magical thinking, knowing science empowers us and it's the poetry of reality.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Sounds like a nice way to meet new people, practice languages and find cheaper ways to travel.

Music, Movies, and Books

My musical tastes go from classical music to metal, I am open to pretty much everything except tropical rhythms, which are not really my thing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gone to Machu Picchu, Galapagos, been in the actual half of the world (found with a GPS), visited the antipodes of my city, visited the Angkor Wat temples, sailed the Tonlé Sap in Cambodia, visited the Opéra de Hanoï, had a short conversation with a Vietnamese priest in Latin, played wheelchair basketball and rugby, worked with venomous snakes, worked in conservation, worked at a Natural History museum, befriended Amazonian natives, got a traditional stick and poke tattoo in Thailand. I can read Sanskrit and put nails in my nose.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Help with Spanish and other languages they might be interested, facts about nature and my country, stories about my time in the Amazon, or working with nature and biodiversity.

Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, Laos, Mexico, Thailand, United States, Uruguay, Viet Nam
