About Me




Student of life. Up for anything. Always looking to meet new people.

I like to use my brain. People tell me I ask lots of questions. But I don't care, you have to learn somehow.

You can tell a lot about a character by how they eat their jelly beans.

I am a fire engineer. Yup.

Viajero avido. Activo estilo de vida. Siempre quiero conocer gente nueva, cosas nuevas, y nuevos lugares.


Try. Fail. Try again.

Embrace your ignorance: Ask lots of questions.

Life is what happens while you make plans.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing wherever I go and hosting in Chicago/Oakland. Awesome experiences with both! I am a low maintenance when I am travelling. When possible, I like to try to share cooked meals together, a chat, drinks, a hike, a night out, or anything, really. The best is when the host has plans with friends and invites to partake.
Surfing y hospedando. Experencias unicas con ambos! Normalmente disfruto compartiendo una cena cocinada con mis couchsurfers.
