About Me


I dream with a better world. I believe in a peaceful and fair world. My aim is to be part of a world where everybody share the same rights in every corner of the world. I think that together we can achieve this goal.


I live with my family at my home town, San Isidro, twenty minutes away from capitol City, Buenos Aires.
I am studying psichology and sociology at the public university of Buenos Aires, UBA.
I am a very sociable person, i enjoy a lot spending time with my friends and my family. I am a sensitive person and i like to hear and talk about personal issues of me and my loved ones.
I enjoy helping others with what they need.
I am always willing to give someone a hand.


I believe in a new way of relationships with everybody sharing what they have and willing to give the person they have beside what he needs.
I look for a world with stronger sense of community, this is the base for a mature and fair society.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I live with my parents, so hosting is not guaranteed in my house. But i offer surfer friends to hang out and show you every corner and cultural traditions of my town.

When travelling i would love to surf and know the real culture of every nation, by been part of locals way of life. I think this is the only way to really learn traditions and ways of living. I consider that this is what is worth of travelling, to grow by sharing something with others, and by receiving what they have to give.


I am a begginner at couchsurfing and i am willing to enter to this amazing world immediately. I am waiting for my next trip to start surfing and knowing new people and new stories.


I like almost all sports that require a ball.
But i specially love futbol and tennis.
I am a River PLate and Roger Federer fan.

As i wrote on my mission, I work everyday for a better world. To achieve this is that, currently, I have a social-environmental organization named "wohow!", where we give educational talks. Our first goal is the growth of awareness.

Also, i love to spend my leisure time reading or going to the river coast for the entire day.
