About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To grow as a human being, expand my horizons!

ABOUT ME

I'm a fun-loving guy with an ardent desire to travel and expand my international knowledge/experience base.

I was born in Dominican Republic and emigrated to USA at the age of four. I highly enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them. I try my best and then I 'go with the flow' of whatever happens in life (not that I'm apathetic).

I like sports (basketball, soccer), hiking and the outdoors, movies (X-Men series, independent/foreign films, Hercules, and more), comic books (Marvel, DC), reading (Emily Dickinson, Brian McGreevy)/writing (poems, theater plays), learning languages/cultural nuances, eating good food (Italian, Thai, Caribbean, fine dining), and adventure!

PHILOSOPHY

I live my life to become the best I can be and bring people with me. I don't think we were placed on this earth to as live self-centered as we at times do. I try to be easy to get along with and whoever sees me, accepts me, and sticks around is welcome. Whoever wants to leave can do that too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I let you talk about yourself more than I talk about myself and then I add relevant personal experiences. Everyone likes to speak, no? Usually, I give more than I take. We'll see what happens.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The beaches of Dominican Republic. Experience them for yourself.

The cold, brisk air of Upstate NY and living on a farm for a summer!

I live an hour away from New York City. Does anything more need to be said?

Teach, Learn, Share

If you pay attention to others' needs above your own long enough, you'll get your own met (and sometimes your needs won't matter as much in the end). Don't be afraid to let people in, when the situation calls for it.

Don't be afraid to smile at strangers and say hello. They might think you're weird but they'll likely remember you.

Look forward and not downwards when walking. This gives off an air of confidence.
