About Me

I'm an artist that dream to meet all the world and all those fascinating sights. I use photography as the way to capture all the beauty but in the past I used some oil paintings,

I am a goofy, friendly, easygoing guy, independent and specialty loyal (if I consider you my friend, you definitively win a superhero, because if I can help I can use my wings to help you!).

My hobbies involve photography for fun, play some guitar (a few compositions that I wrote sometimes), also love to play board games or card games. If you enjoy chilling or have a good meeting with some friends to share some laughs I will love it and if you know a drinking game I am your guy! So if everything that I said before we combine with some pints... the trip will be grand! And possibly you will become my best friend in this whole world!

I am an open book you can see my life at:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am a friendly person, all the time I love to meet new folks and share a little bit of my life and listen to other people histories and if I can get that and save some money, why not?

I also desire to share some cooking skills; I am vegetarian, I can try to show this world that involves making some great meal widout kill any animal, right? A new experience is always delightful don't you think?


I love to be a person who is open minded to new ways to enjoy myself, I love what I described and also I can try new things too, so if you have something to share, please don't hesitate, you can ask anytime!
