About Me


Know the world, their people, their culture, to learn their arts and way of thoughts


I was born in Peru, between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. I connected to nature from my first years. I am curious about the world, about people. Active and willing to learn new tricks and sports that require physical effort and quick reactions. i am a man of the earth and the water.. they are part of my spine; and will give me energy anytime to share it with others.


Life is full of surprises; even from yourself. You never stop learning, and giving to people if you want to. Learn to live and to give, be open to cultures and to find your path. Don't make too many mistakes because you will live with them and learn from them, but make them. Just get up and keep looking forward. Follow your heart although sometimes it might hurt yourself. Cultivate your friends, give them time and love.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


sharing my experiences and advice, motivating others to leave their own couches and explore the world, the country they live in. Nobody should stay stuck in their surroundings. Wisdom comes with experience.


while living in Lima, I traveled to NY and cities bus riding and asking contacts to stay at their houses. Sleep, breakfast and keep going. I have hosted friends all the time. First furniture I bought was a couch-bed for my living room....


Any sport that requires to sweat and make your heart pumping and your brain work. Music from all over the world and learning about different cultures.
