About Me


Running away, from yesterday's news.


All about me? ... Too complicated. Let's make it an intro instead.
I discreetly enjoy my possessions; I love music (indie, punk, rock, alternative!!!, NO dance or "latino"), art, reading, movies, jogging, going to gigs and party. I choose my friends carefully and I take good care of them. The perspective of end up being whatever the telly, bad cinema, shitty mainstream or purposeless persons tell me, leaves me entirely indifferent. I daydream all the time and I like to think of me as a person with good fortune. I love cooking, specially for friends.


The world is sick with Egoism. Let's fight back.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


First I'm expending quite some time to fill all these info!!


No experience yet... but as soon as I have one, I'll give you feedback.


Traveling and visiting museums in all of Mexico. Go to Canada and Europe for a visit and live a few bohemian months each year! :D
