About Me


Keep changing myself towards someone more humble, sustainable, joyful and connected (and not through the internet, precisely).


I'm an open-minded, friendly, sociable, curious, adventure-like person who loves to travel and meet people while sharing experiences, thoughts and points of views. I like to understand the culture, history and current lifestyle of the places I go.

I enjoy having a natural juice in a nice evening, contemplating landscapes, listening the sounds of nature, doing trekking, talking about life in general and specially living new experiences. I'll always be pleased to share stories, believes, thoughts and feelings. I can enjoy a loooong conversation as much as a good minute of silence, don't discriminate the silence. Silence makes everything make sense, after all.

I've studied Computer Science and later I felt attracted to photography and specially photojournalism.

I'm part of a cultural-artistic independent movement in Argentina and I'm interested in the diffusion and creation of independent cultural activities. I'm also very interested in learning about communal ways of living, permaculture, and alternative ways of economy and journalism.

Oh, I also like sports although lately I prefer to share some yoga, meditation or similar activities.


Learning is an endless path. Every new experience puts ourselves in the exact place where we can give a new step on that path.

Let's walk.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In the door of a bar there was sing: "Here are not strangers, only friends to be met".


I've enjoyed each experience in Couchsurfing: surfing, hosting and taking part of group activities in different cities.

I've met wonderful people, I'm sure many more will appear on my path too. I hope to be one on someone else's path as well.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Possibly going from Argentina to Mexico with my back pack, having some fun in Turkey and Greece in the middle. More than 2 years of great learning.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to meet curious people, people that want to see, learn and live over the limits of daily life. People that wants to travel and exchange culture, art, experiences. Motivated people. We are all great after all!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share photography interests or technical aspects, experiences in the different countries I've gone/lived, some cooking time (I'd like to learn more vegan ones!), cycling would be great, discover new places in the surroundings, some quiet yoga/conversational moments, programming concepts or experiences, freelance life, alternative more-environmental-friendly ways of living, etc!
