About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Assist travelers in the San Francisco Bay Area until I save money to go to South America.

ABOUT ME

I am a college graduate who had a secure lifestyle but it just wasn't enough to make me feel happy. One day I woke up and decided I needed to change my life. I bought a plane ticket and quit my job to start traveling. It was scary to leave all my comforts, friends, and family, but I still feel it was one of the best decisions I have ever taken. I had never felt so alive. After traveling for 6 months in Europe I came back to San Francisco to work for a year and I took off to Latin America for 11 months. I feel really happy to have been able to travel to so many countries and met so many beautiful people that helped me with a place to sleep, food, and friendship. Life is amazing!

PHILOSOPHY

TRAVELING DOES A BODY GOOD!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed a few times in Europe and Latin America but since I didnt have much time to be searching for couches in advanced I wasn't very successful. The few times that I did where amazing. Ive hosted a lot of people in San Francisco and hope to be able to keep doing it in Oakland.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CouchSurfing is an amazing apportunity for travelers to meet wonderful people and learn about their culture and hometown. I've had very good experiences both surfing and hosting.

Interests

People, Nature, Bikes, Graphic Design, Photography, Art, Films, Music, and anything that makes me smile.

Music, Movies & Books

I enjoy anything that that teaches me something new or makes me feel good.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Ive slept in the Sahara dessert, walked in the Uyuni salt flats, hitchiked over 3,000 km in less than 5 days, seen a sunrise in Uruguay with dolphins jumping in the ocean, traveled in a VW bus through patagonia, rode a motorcycle towards machu picchu with fog, hail, horrible roads, and incredible altitudes, encountered a wildpig while running in the mountains near Rome. Life itself is amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

The more I travel the more I realize how important it is to interact with local people. At the end of the day a city/country/culture is only as good as the people in it.

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Czech Republic, Ecuador, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Monaco, Morocco, Netherlands, Peru, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom, Uruguay, Vatican City State
