About Me


Figure out how to be on the road again without having to come back for work


I'm an outgoing person - really optimistic with a good sense of humor. I love to learn, meet other people and their points of view. I definitely believe in change of the world and of our "civilization".

I'm the result today of having taken the risks of daring to do things that I never believed that I could to so now I have a bunch of cool things to talk about. Nonetheless I have the challenge of jumping again out of the comfort zone and take new risks.

I love to practice the languages that I know and it makes me happy to learn new words of other languages (not necessarily swear words ). I think that every language unlocks new worlds and hey I love to discover the new worlds all the time.

I spend quite some time at my computer editing pictures, studying photography and exploring new projects. So you are specially welcome if you bring something uber cool to take me out of the cave. I know its bad to be at the computer a lot of time but I'm working to fix that up. If you are into arts or outdoors or riding a bike that is a super extra bonus for me as we will have more in common and can talk about things that we might not know and learn new things.

I do enjoy social interaction so you just need to be a cool surfer that is open to talk and enjoy life.

I'm uber friendly and it's always exciting when I meet new travelers around my city as meeting them for me is a kind of trip on itself as it transports me to different worlds and lifestyles and revives my itchy feet a little bit more.

I do move around by bike at my city as I really hate to use public transportation locally ( having used public transportation in other cities that have better ones spoiled me ) as I can get faster by bike to my destination and more happy.

I'm trying to figure out how to be more nomad and financially sustainable with my skills when I travel. Moving to another country is on my to do list. So if you have experience on any of those people that have achieved it share some love :) tell me more about it.

Overall I'm happy to meet you there is so much beauty and stories in each human being that I enjoy every moment that I can share with my very probably new friends around the world.


Try to help others as much as I can and dare to get out of the comfort zone where the great things happen.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sometimes I organize events, check profiles and give advice to new members, report the fake or comercial profiles, host, surf when I travel, show people around my city, and talk about this project with friends - of course always trying to be a good member. Couchingsurfing is the way I had to find new friends around the world.


I was a scout here in Mexico so here it's the custom to receive your friends from other parts of the country, and show them around the city. Couchsurfing is exactly the same thing but without a webpage and you already know some of them or someone knows them, and send'em to you. Anyway the first time that I traveled to Zacatecas here in Mexico they showed me all the places as if I were their best friend. So with this I learned of CS really well and since then I have CSed with tons of people from around Mexico or around the world. So far I've compiled alot of the pieces of all the people that have helped me or that I have helped. Gotta love it .
