About Me

I've been on Couchsurfing a while, but lately haven't. But I do like to host people and give them places to stay.

I currently work in 3D animation as a freelancer, with some private ventures of my own on the side. I also work as a technical director in an indie animation studio - we have some kids shows on youtube and that have gone on nation TV here in Colombia.

I share this house with my girlfriend and a number of other interesting people. Including a cat - the ninja cat.

I used to host huge parties, and DJ, but now my life is a bit more quiet, studious and workaholic.

I haven't traveled in a while, so I vicariously live them through you. =P

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

How?? i kinda go stop at cities for a few nights and nothing to do! and find some friends to kinda laugh and have some fun with. I like to stay with the "locals" more than hostels, more genuine. Just for a good stopover.. I meet locals. =) One-day I will host. One-day.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Paris!! A cool city. With a guy, and the other couch surfer there from Uraguay was awesome to hang out with. also stayed with this cool guy in rome.
Used it though Bolvia, meeting really interesting people. La Paz was very interesting! and then argentina is like my CS home maybe.
Argentian a was awesomely succesful, I have not couchsurfed more in that country than all the others combined! =)
I also couchsurfed with Jagen in Washington DC, as i saw Obama swear himself himself in! I hope to couchsurf more in North America as i travel.. cheers!

I have also made a bunch of amazing CSing friends in Guadalajara, Mexico! Worth the visit!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Traveled around the whole world (globe) at only 19, from Colombia (of all places, to colombia)... and this camera i've had.. seriously it's been through fire and water, snow and desert, 15000 feet to -1500 feet, plains and mountains, concrete and jungle, and still worked.. it even died and got resurrected! Until someone stole it..

Well i thought it was a nifty camera.

Saw Barak Obama's Inaguration!!

Flew over the Grand Canyon, bah!

Ehhhhh.... I got born.

Teach, Learn, Share

Some Graphics designing, some guitar, some piano. Some magic tricks for kids (views on life, on people.. kinds of people, views of nothing really), some dramas that don't mean much. some hard work... and...
I would love to learn about other peoples and how to relate to them, and the the world, including the world's future as a whole.
what do they think?
I might try teach my thoughts on fixing the worlds poor ways, whatever i think of the places i've been to. (like that would matter =p) Depends if you wanna know, I'm young and foolish. So don't get me wrong, i'll probably be the one asking all the questions!

Got alot of world views from my travels.
