About Me

Hey, guys! My wife Ellie, our 4 months young daughter and I have recently moved to Mexico and now we are living and hosting in San Cristobal, Chiapas.

because we'd like to give a chance to stay to other surfers too.

Traveler, hitchhiker and language enthusiast.

I have an inquisitive mind and eternal urge to explore. Wherever I go, I try to immerse into local cultures and pick up some bits of different languages.

If I'm home, I'll be more than glad to host you. Don't bother looking for some key words in my profile, coz there are none.
Just hit me up if the status is highlighted in green :)

You can send the request and drop a line on my WhatsApp +79872934815
