About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I first got on this site years ago when I was travelling to Mozambique, but didn't end up finding a couch there. Then, honestly, I forgot all about it until just recently when I moved to México, D.F. Llegué sin conocer a nadie y me preguntaba como iba a conocer amigos interesantes, divertidos, y con mentes abiertas y me acordé de la comunidad de Couchsurfing! Tengo muchas ganas de conocer cada rincón de esta ciudad loquita y creo que aquí hay buena gente con quien hacer esto. Hola, gente!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

hmmm big question...let me think about that one

Teach, Learn, Share

Umm...I can teach you about the law! I know close to everything about U.S. immigration law. But I can't give you legal advice because I'm not a lawyer (yet)! Though I can give liability-avoiding disclaimers like a lawyer :)

Countries I’ve Lived In

Ireland, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, United States
