To escape the frantic pace of modern society.
I'm a laid-back guy, a young physician but surfer at heart. A couple of years ago, I embarked on a journey to become a polyglot. Six languages later, I'm just as excited as during my first conversation in French. More concretely, I'm a physician and graduate student doing an MBA/MPH and research in plastic surgery at Johns Hopkins University.
I enjoy having an meaningful conversation over a glass of wine. I'm a very active person who likes to stay fit. What else... An open-minded person, a true free spirit. Loves to travel. Is ready after a swim in the ocean, not after spending hours on hair/primping. Has a genuine interest in different cultures, people, and languages. Is well-rounded but not arrogant or pretentious. Is sophisticated, yet not condescending or superficial.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Curretly as a host. In places where the CS community is more active and organized, I love to partake in all kinds of events and meet-ups. Never a dull moment with fellow CSers!
I was first introduced to CouchSurfing through friends in New York City. After attending a few events, I was delighted to discover a community that shares my view of the world and my passion for traveling. Consequently, I opened an account and have hosted extensively, surfed, and traveled with fellow CSers. Every experience has been positive and I have learned from each of them. I hope to continue to benefit from this opportunity to learn and share in respect and tolerance.
Outside of medicine, I maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, a balanced diet, and a "dose of ritualism" by adhering to my beliefs. I enjoy hikes in nature, climbing, running, surfing and swimming, and I make an effort to lift weights on a consistent basis. I also have a genuine interest in traveling and discovering different cultures. At the same time, I believe it's important to stay grounded and loyal to family.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
- Upclose view of manta rays while snorkeling on Isla de la Plata
- First summit in the Andes at 5,200 meters in the Illinizas
- Walking through the red-stoned Jesuit Reductions in Misiones, Argentina. Taken back centuries in the astonishingly well-preserved humid, red scenery.
Teach, Learn, Share
The languages I speak. Insight into Latin American culture. I hope to learn just as much from you and thus turn this into a mutually-enriching experience!
