About Me


escuchar / aprender / practicar


Mi nombre es Ricardo y vivo en Santiago desde hace 12 años. Aquí­ estudio y trabajo. Nací­ en Iquique, una ciudad ubicada en el norte de Chile donde viven mis padres y mi hermano. Actualmente estoy tratando de ordenar mi vida laboral y académica. Tengo muchas ideas sobre mi futuro próximo y planeo ponerlas en práctica. Trabajo como médico en tres lugares distintos durante la semana.
Hay muchas cosas que disfruto tanto o más que la medicina, a muchas de ellas me gustaría dedicarles más tiempo.
Disfruto en particular del arte y del cine. Hace poco hice un taller de cortometrajes. Me considero un artista y terapeuta en bruto. Disfruto de aprender y compartir el conocimiento.
Soy una persona tranquila, amable e introvertida, pero me gusta mucho conversar, escuchar y debatir. No me gustan los autos ni la televisión. Soy un feliz peatón.

I am a calm, friendly and introverted guy, I love to talk and listen. I do not like cars or television. I am a happy pedestrian.


I do not have a daily philosophy but i'm looking for a good one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to know and share with people around the world. I like to travel and learn everything that i can. My doors are open to the chilean and foreigner friends.


I had the most amazing first experience in August 2010. I met Alberto in Harlem, NYC; He and his friends were the best of my trip. I learned that there are no excuses to open your heart to the world. Now I'm preparing my home to share and celebrate life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have seen people born and died, i have seen human sick and grateful; I have seen the human being on the inside and outside, living and dead. I have seen people suffer and falter. And in all of that I haven't only been spectator...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share my love to life.
I can share my taste for art, music and cinema.

I am a great student. I learn quickly. I like to learn as much as possible about other languages and cultures.
