About Me


To Travel as Much as I can!


I live in Philadelphia..Even though it says my last login was in Kansas City or California... I think the locator from couchsurfing.com is not working properly.

People usually view me as a big kid because I still want to see/do everything! I love traveling, cultural exchanges, and meeting new people who are open to the world around them. I have a passion for life, people, arts, cooking (People say I make the best Ceviche) I like what its different, try new things, learn stuff, eat healthy food, improve my English!


Follow your dreams. Listen to your heart. Whatever others might tell you, never forget that you only live once. And that your dreams, big or small, are the biggest treasure that will guide your life to a unique and wonderful destiny.
