About Me

I wake up each morning torn between the desire to save the world, and the desire to savour it. This makes it very hard to plan the day. -- E. B. White

Me levanto cada mañana dividida entre el deseo de salvar el mundo y el deseo de saborearlo. Esto hace que sea muy difícil planear el día. - E. B. White

Tengo la gran suerte de tener un trabajo que me permite viajar a menudo, conociendo personas, lugares, culturas, y experiencias fantásticas en el camino.

J'ai la grande chance de travailler dans un domaine passionnant qui me permet de voyager souvent, découvrant des gens, endroits, cultures, et experiences fantastiques le long du chemin.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing, hosting, learning, sharing...!

He tenido una experiencia increíble hasta ahora con CS. Todos los que he conocido han sido tan amables, y me da esperanza saber que hay una comunidad de personas en este mundo loco que todavía son sinceras, confiadas y afectuosas.

I have had an amazing experience so far with CS. Everyone I have met has been so kind, and it is comforting to know that there is a community of people out there in this crazy world who are still open-hearted, trusting, and caring.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to speak, teach, and learn different languages, and to share music and food from different places. I am willing to try (almost) anything twice, and always excited to learn something new.
