About Me

CURRENT MISSION

On a mission to laugh

ABOUT ME

I am in love with life, I feel passion for my work, I love sports specially mountain biking but I practice lots of outdoor sports and I am enjoying the gym more and more every day for a couple of years now.
I love electronic music and dancing. I enjoy and use a lot of technology but I also have some background in antiques and classical art

PHILOSOPHY

Every mind is a unique world and I am curious, very.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

It is very obvious that I have this two negative references and I should say something about it: I did learn a lot from those two bad opinions from others

And of course: FOR EVERY DISADVANTAGE THERE IS AN ADVANTAGE

In the case of Xenia´s schizophrenic remarks, I got the advantage of a great filter to separate CSs who read the reference and think; -Oh, she has a point. And the rest of the people who pay attention at reading, shrugs and think; -Stupid girl. look at the rest of his record, lets host this fellow... :D

I want to return the uninterested kindness received so many times by being a host my self in so many places and different circumstances

Worked in the Film Industry with all the big shots and I mean; Gael Garcia Bernal, Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron, Alejandro Gonzales Iñarritu, I have the most incredible experiences working on big productions
Also worked in the News Industry, I was working for the newspaper The New York Times in Iraq during 2003 and 2004, covering the war as a video producer correspondent (I didn't enjoy it)
What I did enjoy was doing apnea diving in the pacific coasts of México with wales that where passing by on their way north and listen to their chantings first hand
