About Me


I've had the chance to do a fair amount of traveling because of my job or vacations, I lived abroad with my family and did a two year sabbatical.
I've got a full time job in the Navy and I work as a scuba diving instructor during the weekends.

I enjoy meeting new people and traveling is definitely one of the things I like doing the most.

Live and let live.
Never miss out on a good opportunity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've participated in events in different cities, hosted a few people, couchsurfed in different places, but mostly by meeting couchsurfers for drinks or other activities while traveling.


Scuba Diving for sure. Worked on it for a year in Australia and nowadays work part time in Valparaíso, Chile.
I travel whenever I can and I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, biking, etc. I really like photography as a hobby.
Going out for drinks, etc.
