About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Constantly evolve into someone better

ABOUT ME

I am Omar, born and raised in Mexico City. Although I find the importance on describing one´s self, I find it a little bit of a cliché as well; however, I will give it a try. In general, I like languages, long interesting conversations, going around without a specif plan, try new things and learn as much as I can. I am a pragmatic rather than a "by the book"kind of person, or at least I try to be.
I like spending my time reading a good book,watching a good film or tv series, or just going somewhere I hadn´t been before.
In the end, just as any other human being, I am constantly evolving but remain with my personal essence.

PHILOSOPHY

Experience, learn and share as much as possible, anytime, anywhere and with the most people I can.
The greatest gift of human beings is their diversity; that uniqueness that makes us individuals.
The worst word I´ve learnt so far in any language is fear; not because of the word itself, but because it seems to be sight-blinding, causing harm to diversity.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people every once in a while if it is possible and sometimes meet people from the CS community for all kind of different stuff. I talk about the website with people interested in the project.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A friend of mine told me about hospitalityclub, which I joined. Later on that website, I found a very dear friend of mine who told me about couchsurfing, and here I am...

I had my first couchsurfer guests during the Eurocup 2008 when I was living in Salzburg. It was a nice experience hosting people. Now, I host some more people in Mexico city and I get in touch with other people from CS when I get to travel.

In general, my experience has been positive. I have met amazing people and plan to remain a couchsurfer forever.

Interests

Culture, languages, finance, banking, management, trade policy, politics, swimming, theather, cinema, tv series, traveling, etc. I think there are way too many interesting things to list them all here.

Music, Movies & Books

The City of the beasts by Isabel Allende, Blindness by José Saramago, Rogue Trader by Nick Leeson, 100 years of solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, Evanescence, Susana Zabaleta, Lea Castel, Linkin Park, Kill Bill, Avatar, Jurassic Park, Back to the future, The Legend of Drizzt, Caín, Los brujos del poder...again, way too many to list them all!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Found out how generous and giving people can be with strangers. Actually, that´s something Couch Surfing taught me. And as a friend says: Life is a helping chain!

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy learning and practising languages with others. Always down to share my working and personal experience with others, as well as learning all kinds of new things.
