About Me


work out what to do with my life!


I'm a nomad and I attract coincidences! El mundo es un super panuelo!

I would describe myself as open-minded, reliable, friendly and independent.

Friends have described me in many different ways, including: crazy, organised, blunt, a perfectionist, a hooligan, bossy, critical, sincere, affectionate, adventurous, chatty. So I guess it depends who you ask!

I try to live life to the fullest and pack lots of fun into everyday! I work hard but also play hard ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have attended a lot of the CS events, meetings and parties and think it's a fantastic project for meeting like-minded people across the world!

I have also surfed and hosted in several countries and have only had great experiences.

If you want to surf our couch, please send me a personalised couch request :)


I'm a bit of a nomad and have lived in over 8 countries over the last few years, so CS suits me very well as it's a fantastic way to meet people and make friends when you arrive in a new city.
