About Me

I love to meet new people and try new things.

At the moment, my focus is film production and finding different ways to use this beautiful medium to share knowledge in creative ways and change the world for the better.

I currently want to be everywhere, and learn everything all at once. Unfortunately, most of these things have to be done in steps. Well step by step, I welcome new knowledge in all forms. Self experience is usually the most interesting and effective of those forms, and I'm all over it.

I have always known that I am different from everyone and I take the word "weird" as a compliment. I pride myself on being different and definitely encourage others to do so as well.

I'm also not so patient with my own life. I won't wait for things to "just happen". I'm patient with nice people though :)

Pero hay que aprovechar y aprender algo de la vida errante...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have gotten a lot more out of Couchsurfing than I ever thought possible. Of course I love traveling and meeting other people, but I've also learned new languages, attended amazing events, made lifelong friends... and the list goes on.

My first CS Experience was with a really nice chileno in Germany, and my various couches, mattresses, and floors have been open to countless surfers ever since.


Film, writing, languages, biking, and putting myself in unfamiliar situations that I can learn from.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In April of 2010 I had the chance to spend 2 months in the UK. Although it was for work, I still had an incredible time as it was also my first time out of my country. This was definitely a life-changing experience that I will always remember and I've been addicted to learning more about the world and its wonderful people ever since.

Teach, Learn, Share

I will gladly teach any languages I know, which I love to practice anyway!

I can teach everything I know about film.

I can help hook up your television?


I can teach you how to dance badly, which I do often and love it.

I like to cook with and for other people, but I take my time and enjoy the moment..

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share stories. I can share food and cook. Hopefully we can share a beer over some good conversation.

If you want something that I have, I probably won't mind sharing it :)

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Scotland, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In
