About Me

Hi, I like painting, swimming, cooking. I am a very curious person, so always open to have a conversation with people with a good heart.

Interests: Nigiris (specially with truffles - cook and eat), art (painting or open to onboard into any practice), practicing sports (not watching tho), reading (into philosophy, business books and self-help books), night walks

Peruvian national swimming record holder. Goal-oriented banker. Ex-McKinsey. Frustrated itamae. Proud idealist.

I consider myself open-minded, not picky about doing different things, I can accept a coffee, a meal, making a new trip or just go out for a walk.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing some waterfalls from the Peruvian Jungle.

Travelled to represent my country in southamerican games, worldchampionships, Deutsche Meisterschaften

2 months in Sao Paulo training at SCP Corinthians with worldchampions.

Diving in the wild at Colombia's coral reefs and finding lobsters, squids and wonderful color fishes.

Stayed at a luxury cruise in the deepest side of the amazonas with no cell coverage so was able to fully disconnect in this crazy era

Watching the Northern Lights and being at a Hot Spring while snowing in Iceland.

Driving all over the coast of Croatia.


Teach, Learn, Share

-Well what mostly discribes myself is swimming, so if you want some lessons, you can get them for free. Therefore as an athlete I know something about basic nutrition, motivation psychology, I like to listen, mostly always I feel I can give a point of view.

-I like stories, but I am not good in history; however I am a good alumni ;)

-Smiles and friendship

What I Can Share with Hosts

-Swimming lessons (if you don't have a pool, mimic classes)
-Make sushi (if we have enough time and ingredients haha)
-Cooking Peruvian/Chinese flavor.
-Walk, talk, play any game, etc.
