About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Cycling in developing countries, making & printing portraits for those families who had none!

ABOUT ME

I live in the countryside, 50km from downtown area. Former rugby player, when possible I like to practice trekking, rafting, mountain bike, off-road, and overlanding.

PHILOSOPHY

One unique, beautiful, brief life... LIVE IT!!! Adventure is out there :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Most surfers usually want to stay in the City, so I meet them for coffee, drinks, dinner, watch some Tango or Polo games... As I'm usually making photos when I travel (and my schedule is not always "normal") I don't surf couches that often... but I'm always willing to meet other travelers to share adventures!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great so far!!! My life was enriched by meeting so many people with different cultural backgrounds :)

Interests

I'm passionate about photography; as a kid, my dream was to become a National Geographic photographer.
I own 7 stray dogs (love dogs, specially the ugly ones) and enjoy everything related with nature.
I enjoy traveling without an itinerary... and probably and can't live without coffee (single origin specialty grades when possible).
