About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Working in an archive in Barcelona. Studying the relationships and artistic transmissions between the Low Countries and the Iberian Peninsula in the XV and XVI centuries.

ABOUT ME

I'm 24 years old and I'm from Barcelona. I've studied the marvelous bachelor of Art History. Now I'm working in different museums in Barcelona. Funny, active, curious, easy-going, talkative, entusiasthic, sometimes excentric, dreamer and freak -most of the time-.
I love the mediterranean sea and Dire Straits.

If you want to stay with us at home, read the "home description". Requests without sense/making any reference about the situation, I won't reply. SORRY/THANKS :)

PHILOSOPHY

Ars retentum venenum est.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing allows you to meet most of that bright side of the human being who's always hidden by prejudices. Clearly, I've to discover so many new places and many new interesting people which -for sure- will bring meaning and colour notes to my vital journey.

Interests

Medieval and flemish art, literature, all sorts of music, classical, gregorian chant, drum and bass, techno, metal, rock etc (from Arvo Pärt to Dimmu Borgir). I also enjoy walking through the forest/mediterranean seaside and enjoying the aesthetics of the world.
