About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel aroun Europe and know as many things as I can!!!

ABOUT ME

I'm friendly and have a good sense of humor. I think I'm a happy person, I like a good joke. Also, I like having a good conversation. I love playing drums and having a good chat with a good friend while having a beer. I love reading and watching movies, and am very interested in new experiences and in meeting new people. I'm travelling with my wife, a lovely girl interested in arts.

PHILOSOPHY

One is not oneself without the meaning attached to one's life by otherness.

I'm a radical democrat.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I´ve just been to Berlin with an amazing east-berliner. He hosted my wife and me, and we had the most wonderful time. This confirms what I've always thought: we have to trust each other if we want to change this decadent but beautiful world.

Interests

I study political philosophy, so I enjoy a good discusion. However, I consider myself to be respectful of other's opinions. I love music. I play the drums in a Metal band and enjoy learning about differents types of music. I love doing things with my wife, such as sharing a meal or just walking.

Music, Movies & Books

So difficult to choose. I'm always carrying a book, I'm always in the search of a movie. How could I tell?

Right now, however, I'm into Lovecraft, Hemingway,and finally reading "The Miserables" (I started before the musical, but it's too long). I read a lot of philosophy.

As I said, I play drums in a Metal band in Mexico City, so I love metal, but also progressive rock. I like jazz and classical, but I'm not too good in that.

Lately, because of my research, I've been watching a little bit of italian films: I love Scola and Visconti. I like Lars Von Tier a lot (but not the last movie).

I don't know, while chatting is easier to tell...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I met my wife when I was 21 and she was 17. We've been together since 2001. We do everything together (so as to say, haha). So, I think marrying her is the most amazing thing.

Well, I play drums and have a band. We compose original songs, and that's amazing.

I've writen two novels (not published) and two thesis.

I decided to come to Barcelona for one year, expierience which has been absolutely breathtaking.

Teach, Learn, Share

There's no democracy without a democratic Paideia. There's no Paideia without dialogue.

Countries I've Visited

France, Germany, Portugal, Spain, United States
