About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To erase my own limits. To draw new lines and to be always a sketch made by an unpredictable hand. To see the world with everyone's eyes. In the end, nobody wanted to settle down.

ABOUT ME

Thoughtful, curious, critic, passionate about each single thing I like.
I'm a wide range hedonist. Being isolated on dark, rainy, gloomy days are as inspiring to me as being surrounded by many smiley people out in the sunshine on a beach. I like to shout out loud with cheerful new friends on a funny bar, and I also meditate on a bus ride watching random people faces. A solo traveller most of the time, willing to interact with every single person that has a story to tell.

I can be catalogued tho. I'm a psychologist with a strong social approach (I used to work with kids in social risk), a digital nomad, a human sciences enthusiast, an avid reader and a not that good writer. I discuss in excess about politics, standing for minorities with a queer and decolonialist emphasis. I'm usually annoying for privileged people defending coservative morals, but don't you worry, people I met say I'm kind and easygoing :)

PHILOSOPHY

Existence precedes essence

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosting and showing around the city, being hosted and meeting new people in different cities. I also participate in CS events in every city I visit/live in.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

People from different parts of the world have stayed at my home, and I've taken long time to show them around and to introduce them to my friends. I have also been hosted in my many trips, meeting unforgettable friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

My lists are endless but here goes a sample:

Films: a lot of art cinema, european films, independent films in general. I like to follow filmographies, my top directors are Kubrick, Tarkovski, Parajanov, Kaurismáki, Vinterberg and von Trier. Getting more into Bergman lately.

Music: alternative rock, indie, punk, folk and some introvert pop music. I have my moods, sometimes I need Nirvana, Pearl Jam or some other grungie bands, sometimes I need sad introvert solo artists like Elliott Smith or Sufjan Stevens, some other times I need to sing along some indie anthems with Arcade Fire but I also enjoy to jump and mosh in hardcore punk concerts (Turnstile is the band I'm loving nowadays). I also listen to a lot of argentinian rock, ask me for suggestions!

Books: I read a lot of stuff related to politics, philosophy and psychology. I'm into queer theory and decolonial movement lately , but I also do classics like Foucault, Sartre, Heidegger, the list is long. I read novels and short stories from time to time, Dostoievsky, Kafka and Cortázar are among my favourites. Please mention any of these authors in your request as a proof you have read my profile.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
