About Me


After nine years in Miami, I moved to Delray Beach, a small upscale historical beach city located halfway between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

My home is located:
5 minutes to the beach
1 minute to the interstate highway
5 minutes to the Delray Beach TriRail and Amtrak train station
Boca Raton Brightline station is 15 minutes away
FLL Airport is 35 minutes by car or 45 minutes by TriRail train
PBI Airport is 20 minutes by car or 40 minutes by TriRail train
MIA Airport is over 1 hour by car or 1.5 hours by TriRail train
Miami Central station in downtown Miami is 50 minutes by Brightline train
Orlando is 2.5 hours by Brightline train
1 hour south to Haulover nude beach
1 hour north to Blind Creek nude beach

I am a non-smoker professional (architect and sculptor) that left New York City after 16 years to live a new life and career in Miami. The nature here is spectacular unlike other US cities ... marine life and tropical plants. Great winter weather ... like being in paradise. I love Haulover and Blind Creek nude beaches!

I am a graduate of architecture from the University of Texas at Austin. I also studied sculpture at The School of Visual Arts in New York. I loved academics so much I even did further studies at Oxford University in UK and Kogakuin University in Tokyo.

After many years working for famous architecture firms designing cultural centres, museums, skyscrapers, large corporate headquarters, schools and universities, I now have my own business designing high end residential projects around the world. www.ideasGHE.com.

I am originally from Chihuahua, Mexico but have also lived in United Kingdom, Italy, and Japan. I am fluent in Spanish, Italian, and English.

Why Iโ€™m on Couchsurfing

To make new interesting friends from around the world. Would be nice to know them in my home and then visit them at their home in the future. I have made great life-long friendships through Couchsurfing since I joined in 2015. I get along very well with other people who are into adventure, culture, language, art, and so much more.

If you happen to be a nudist / naturist male (straight, bisexual or gay does not matter) I would like to meet you. I have been a nudist since the age of 12. For those that do not know, nudism / naturism is a lifestyle. Itโ€™s not about sex.


Travel overseas, museums, galleries, architecture and contemporary design, restaurants, lounges, nude beaches, tennis, hiking, biking, running, gardening, movies, photography.

Music, Movies, and Books

Any music is great from British and American 80โ€™s to Bollywood pop. Not a fan of American country or Mexican rancheras. Too many sad lyrics.

One Amazing Thing Iโ€™ve Done

I love to travel the world and see great natural wonders and ancient cities and sites. Among my favourites ... Machu Picchu, Great Wall of China, Teotihuacan, Cartagena de Indias, Venice, Marrakesh, Kathmandu, Kyoto, Jerusalem, Istanbul, Amazon, Himalayas, Sahara Desert, etc.
