About Me


Meeting new people, communicating. Exploring myself and being aware of life.


I am very good at listening and quite open-minded. It's difficult to make me angry and I am more interested in personal experiences than in things. I prefer to experience a town by walking its streets and meeting its people than by visiting all the touristic attractions.

I'm not religious at all, but I consider every independent movie-theater a kind of "temple", love trying new foods, enjoy singing, and wish I could play guitar.

I respect everybody and learn from any situation.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to be a good contact in town and I also host from time to time. When I travel, I use CS as a way to contact with other travelers and locals.


I have hosted several travelers and it has been a great experience.

In 2009-2010 I spent 3 months in New York City and thanks to the local CouchSurfing community I could meet a lot of really nice, interesting and funny people.
I have attended many events and I have also organized 2 of them: the first was the "Manhattan walkathon", where a group of CouchSurfers walked the entire length of Manhattan from North to South.

The second one was a cooking event at my place in China Town, where I cooked Spanish "paella" and a few CouchSurfers brought wine, desert and the will to wash the dishes.

In 2011 I have lived another 3 months in Buenos Aires and CS has made it easier for me to have a social life in Argentina.

I'm staying in Toronto temporary and CS has been a great tool to meet people.

In Córdoba (my hometown) I try to help to create an active CS group.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching into my own emotions.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am willing to teach you some Spanish, specially if you are also willing to teach me some English or German. I am interested in other languages too, but I don't speak them. I can show you how I cook.

I would like to learn how you cook or any other thing you may be good at.
