About Me


Love and create.


Amar y crear.


I want to participate in making this world better. I want to live a life that respects nature, be connected to the earth, nature and its inhabitants, be aware of my "cultural and social glasses", live in solidarity with my fellow human beings, and find and live an alternative to the current mainstream life of consumerism and capitalism.

I always would like to remind myself of the following quote in order resist:

"In the neoliberal society being consequent is very difficult. The temptations of the main principles of the neoliberal citizenship are very attractive and seductive: fame, success and money. These three values have not only been temptations that made people embracing the social cause yesterday be inconsequent in politics, but also in other areas of everyday and professional life, many are ready to give up their principles in order to sell themselves to neoliberalism and get/maintain: money, fame and success."


Quiero participar en mejorar este mundo. Estoy tratando de vivir una vida que respeta a la naturaleza, estar conectado a la tierra, la naturaleza y sus habitantes, estar consciente de mis "gafas culturales y sociales", vivir en solidaridad con la humanidad, y encontrar y vivir una vida alternativa a la corriente principal del consumismo y capitalismo.

Siempre quiero acordarme de esta cita para no dejarme corromper:

"En la sociedad neoliberal ser consecuente es muy difícil. Pues las tentaciones de las tres principales condiciones de la ciudadanía neoliberal son muy atractivas y seductores: fama, éxito y dinero. Los tres valores han sido las tentaciones que no solo hacen que las y los individuos que ayer abrazaron la causa social y popular sean inconsecuentes en política, sino también, en otros ámbitos de la vida cotidiana y profesional, muchas y muchos están dispuestos a despojarse de sus principios para venderse al neoliberalismo con el objeto de obtener/mantener: dinero, fama y éxito."


Life is all about humans. I want to make meaningful relationships with the people I cross paths with.


Lo que importa en la vida es la gente. Quiero crear relaciones con profundidad con la gente que encuentro en el camino.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed couches in a number of different places, and almost all of these experiences have left me in awe. Not only have I made friendships that will last a lifetime, but also did these encounters show that we do have a reason to have faith in humanity, and that is just wonderful.


He surfeado couches en diferentes lugares y casi todas estas experiencias me dejaron asombrado. No solo hice amistades por toda la vida, pero estos encuentros también me mostraron que se puede tener fe en la humanidad, y eso simplemente es lindo.

Music, Movies, and Books

I barely watch TV, but the list of books I want to read keeps on growing. I am mostly interested in literature about society and history, but I am also very much into classics.
