About Me


Carpe Diem bitch!


I'm an advertiser not into the advertising business. After a working hard for many years, I've started my own business and I'm putting all my heart and soul into it. I'm very eager to learn and to try new things. I guess you'll have to hang out with me for further descriptions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been hosting CSers for over 4 years. Every single CSer I've hosted has taught me something, for which I'm really grateful. I can only hope to keep having these learning and personal growth opportunities.


I´ve hosted CSers for over 5 years before I got to surf some couches myself. I couldn´t believe how much my travel experience was enhanced by sharing with kind and interesting hosts who opened their homes and minds to me. The good vibe I got from ALL my hosts just encouraged me to become a better host for future CSers. I've been into this for 10yrs now and I just can't describe how much I've learned through CSing.


I have this thing for languages, so I'm trying to learn as many as I can. I also love animals, to the point that I almost became a vet. I have to confess that I love my dog OTTO above all...

I ended up majoring in advertising and have a HUGE passion on graphic design and video editing/animation. I'm also some sort of adrenaline freak, reason for which motorcycle traveling and downhill skating are great passions of mine. I also enjoy rafting, bungee, rappellin, snowboarding and surfing; although I don't get to do them as often as I'd like.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once I got to travel for a week from Panama city to Bocas del Toro on a sponsored downhill skating tour with the local riders. It was amazing how much bonding we could make within a few hours with people we never met before. We had so many things in common it felt like we've been friends for ages.

I believe getting into CouchSurfing 10yrs ago was pretty amazing. It really changed my life positively.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can try to teach some Spanish and English. Also, if you're into it we could go skating and/or surfing together.

I absolutely passionate about languages and if you´re willing to help me practice or teach me a new one I'll be forever grateful.
