About Me

Hi :) I am a Colombian illustrator, animator and animal lover who has been living between Colombia, Canada and México, working for children animated TV shows and currently directing my own animated documentary project (which is giving me the chance to explore the globe looking for new stories, teaching animation in some Colombian Universities and taking theather acting classes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am starting to gain some momentum (with my project and my life in general) and probably I will be travelling around South America soon; said that, Couchsurfing seems like the perfect tool to improve my experience to the max.
