About Me

CURRENT MISSION

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

ABOUT ME

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!

PHILOSOPHY

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

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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

Interests

MUSIC!
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 & 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.
