About Me


LIVE in one of the greatest cities in the world... NYC


I am 26 years old and I just graduated from college with my bachelors degree in metallurgical engineering.

I don't want any walls around me at the moment and I have always been passionate about bicycles so I am going to become a bike messenger in the mean time in New York City. That is the current mission.

I like to experience people, all types of people. I think everyone has their story and that is one of the things that interests me the most... "How you got to where you are now and what happened before this time that you're standing here in front of me the lead to us crossing paths" ...Absolutely fascinating..

I also like to help people, I love to help people that want to learn, I'll gladly teach you any information that might be useful to you in any way, from engineering to bikes and everything in between.


Carpe Diem... Vita brevis.

That is an old Latin saying meaning "Seize the day, life is short" I like to live my life in that kind of mentality and always put my best foot forward.

I also believe laughter is the best medicine, when you make someone laugh there is a certain connection that is formed and you disarm their fears..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment since I am so far from home and this whole concept is relatively new to me I can only participate as a surfer but I really like the idea of this site and the power of it to connect us to new friends. In the future I plan to Host wherever I may be..


I am interested in people, magic, riding bikes, physical fitness, conservation of our beautiful planet, traveling it as well, playing sports, drinking with new friends, riding far places, being a good friend to have.

Music, Movies, and Books

I can't say I read too much (Something I am currently working on) but I do enjoy listening to various types of music, I love real house music and tend enjoy the more laid back type of music. I love the new stuff that is coming out lately though, I find new styles I like daily almost. Music is my love!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've yet to do something worthy of a mention in this box but I hope to change that soon.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you all about bikes, from riding them, fitting them, working on them, and everything in between.

I have a degree in material science so if you have any questions about that I can always lend a hand as well.

I like to mix music, I can teach you how to mix the old school way with vinyl and a mixer provided we find the equipment.

I would love to learn how to cook better! I can cook very basic things nothing too fancy.
