About Me


Explore the world and its people


Solo traveler
Psychology student
Amateur photographer
Music and Literature lover

Un cronopio para los que leen al maestro ;)


My personal philosophy is that life is beautiful and there is plenty of little things to enjoy. It's easy to forget about the little things and get caught up in this materialistic world.

I believe in Existentialism.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I mostly surf.


**not necessarily a couchsurfing experience, but close...**

While growing up in the Dominican Republic, my aunt visited Mexico as an exchange student and two students from Mexico stayed with my family. Today, almost 10 years later, we are still good friends and I can fully say I have someone I can count on if I plan to visit Mexico. This experience taught me the humane side of traveling; making friends around the world, with no regard to borders and nationality.


Learning new things, reading new books, drinking new alcohols, seeing new places, going to new concerts, meeting new people. Redefining myself :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Visiting the Dominican Republic after 7 years of living abroad and noticing the cultural/identity limbo I am in. Ni de aquí ni de allá, pero ciudadano del mundo.

saw a sky filled with thousands of stars on the beach in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica.

I could teach you Spanish, English, how to dance Merengue and Bachata... and could talk for hours about my personal philosophy, Cuban politics, American politics, Psychology, the Dominican Republic and how I would love the world to be.
