About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Getting used to my new life.

ABOUT ME

Is so complicated to talk about yourself, but well, I will start, the formal part of my life: Latin american living in Paris, actually I'mm working in a medical company as clinical project manager. It is really cool!

The other part of my life, is based on being in contact with people. I know, I am an engineer, and sometimes, there is a cliché about engineers, who are in the office or close-minded, blabla. I am not a different engineer, i am just myself, and in my life, i have a constant desire of getting to know new things every day, is great to talk with people from all places, and share our cultures.

Couchsurfing is based on two principles: Share and trust, or at least this is how i see it. With sites like couchsurfing, I believe the world is not as bad as we think, and that there are still people who can change it. I just can say that couchsurfing is an opportunity to meet people that otherwise we wouldn't have met.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like to know about different cultures, host people in Paris or simply going out and meeting this city where i live, Paris. Also if you ever go to Colombia or south america, don't hesitate to contact me, and i can give you any advice or even a friend/family of mine can host you somewhere in my continent.

I am just open to meet people and share experience, really you never know which people you will get to know. My participation in couchsurfing is giving my best every moment when I meet people, really you can never imagine all what we can learn from each other. I think i have learnt a lot in this time in couchsurfing than in the last years.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Two years ago, i was in the italian alps, during summer, it has been the best trip I have ever had. Beautiful landscapes and a great company with french and latinamerican friends.

Another thing I enjoy is christmas time, because I see happy people everywhere. I think everything we do is amazing, because every day we work for the developpement of our own projects that one day will make us be proud.

But if we talk about couchsurfing, I think what I have seen in this community, such motivated people to travel , to share experiences, is already amazing, strangers meeting, and having conversations, walking in the city, is already an evolution in mankind's way of thinking.Great experiences with couchsurfers, I have met amazing people and with some of them J have regular contact and we became good friends, thanks to couchsurfing I feel like a world citizen.

Teach, Learn, Share

My philosophy is simple, I am open to meet all kinds of people, and feel everyday we are learning new things.

Paris for example is a city with lots of things to do, so I would like to share great moments in this beautiful city.

Every day i have to learn something new, otherwise it won't be a good day!
