About Me


Having a blast and getting to know a lot of amazing people!


I am a passionate musician and I play several instruments; that's about the most distinctive thing about me. A couple of years ago I decided to train parkour; therefore, I spend a lot of time jumping over things and looking at the streets while daydreaming some of my favorite movements. It's a great excercise and an incredible discipline, and one of the fun ways to master oneself. I really like to cook, I've been a chef in a japanese food restaurant too! I also love linguistics and languages, and one of my goals is to learn Gaelic (if I ever get to master the other ones :P).
Once I thought about majoring in psychology because I find people to be the most interesting thing around to learn from, and I thought that if I managed to be able to help people, I'd be making a little change in their lives and helping them edge towards happiness. However, I decided to be an interpreter so I could be in closer relationship with languages and with the people that speak them. I really get a kick out of mingling with all sorts of cultures! (:
I've been doing some work around The US and Mexico as a music teacher, and I was an Au Pair for a while in Germany!


Personal philosophy? "Why not? If it's enjoyable, and I can learn something from it, come on!"
It may sound cliche'd, but the reason I live my life the way I do is because every day is a new opportunity, and man! You never know who/what might come around the corner!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm not sure if my answer meets the full extension of this question, but my participation in the CS project is...
I really love travelling. I really love meeting new people. I absolutely love getting to know lifestyles that differ from mine. What better way to do it than CS-ing? I think it's an awesome approach to complete all that I want to achieve in this sense, and damn! If I can help anyone that's around to have a good time, all the better!


Pretty good so far, I've run into some great people and I expect this lucky roll of mine to continue!


I like to dance to latin music, why not? Playing music for whoever I meet is also a given. Partying is good, and I love having a great time while meeting new people. I'm also interested in languages. I recently became a traceur, so if you want to come and train parkour with me, all the better! I used to practice capoeira and a couple of martial arts. I like to go cycling, and any way of getting around.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I like pretty much everything, I'm not picky in that sense. However, I am always a sucker for funk, jazz and rock. But metal and punk, latin or industrial... It all depends on the mood.
Movies... I like comedy films, and action's awesome too. For example, I'll watch anything with Jim Carrey, Will Ferrel or Adam Sandler on it. Indiana Jones movies... MAN!!!
I also like to read pretty much everything, but for some reason I just can't read romantic novels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Paragliding over the mountains of Valle de Bravo and getting to see world from a different perspective. Simply amazing.

Also whilst playing my music live I've had the chance to see that it brightened a couple of people's days, that felt incredibly good, too.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you some things, and I'm sure I will learn some. The "what" will come when it comes. :) If you're really interested in music, parkour, my language, a little bit of cooking... I'm sure I can help.
