About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Saving Money to travel. Looking forward to travel and spend that money. Rinse and repeat.

ABOUT ME

I work on advertising, I´ve been working for a few years now for two companies in Perú and a Clinic in Argentina. I consider myself a curious and funny guy. Very obsessed with historical spots (specially Castles, Churches and Monasteries are my passion). Also Cemeteries, but not becasue I´m a freak, just because I have a Passion for Statues in General, and believe: if you want to see cool Statues...you gotta go to cemetery (by day, of course, what am I, crazy?). I also love to cook (and for some weird reason, I have to do the dishes...dirty Kitchens make me nervous). Always looking forward to meet new people all over the World. Hum, I don´t know what more I must write in here, Mr. Couchsurfing...Is this enough?, yes?, ok thanks.

PHILOSOPHY

¨People see you they the way they treat you. If they see you bad, they mistreat you: if you look bad, you will be mistreated, if you look good, you will be hired¨ (Mirtha Legrand). I know, it doesn´t sound as cool in english compared ti spanish (¨Como te ven, te tratan. Si te ven mal, te maltratan. Si te ven bien, te contratan¨).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would like to know people from all over the world, it´s one of the most enriching experiences that a person can have. I´m looking forward to know people that likes to share a walk, a drink (why not) and also share anecdotes that can make us both laugh. Laughing is therapeutic and we all should laugh more (a lot more).

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Punk Rock, Metal, Blues, Jazz, Fado, Tango, Acoustic Sets, Composition, Drunken performances in bonfires, etc.

Books: ¨The Dark Tower¨, ¨Misery¨, ¨Bag o´ Bones¨ (Huge Stephen King Fan).

Movies: Not a huge fan of cinema, but if I have to choose, I like Horror and Mistery movies. Curious Fact: I also cry (EVERY F***ING SINGLE TIME) when I watch ¨Braveheart¨. No matter the time, no matter the years: every time I see that movie on TV, I shed a tear.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent a New Year´s Eve with my friends in Rio de Janeiro, in the beach watching the fireworks. It was something unbelieveable and unforgettable. I even got Beers as a present from a few Cariocas that were hanging out with us at the beach. I got into the sea after midbight. Yeah, I was very drunk (but the water was delightful).

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to cook a lot, I´m willing to share one secret or two, specially when it comes to my Onion Soup or my Tacos a la Argentina (better than Mexicans...just kidding. They´re just different). I love languages and local expressions (specially historical ones). I also can tell a lot of shameful histories od my friends and myself: shameful histories are the best, lol
