About Me


Think globally, act locally.


I'm from Barcelona and I studied Biology; I really like to live in different countries while doing research. It's the perfect match, learning while discovering another culture! I love going outdoors and hike for several days in a row!
I have been always a scientific head but I do enjoy a lot arts, specially painting and now I am learning how to do pottery! I am glad to announce that I produce some pieces that they are even useful!! yaaay!


Disfruta del cambio y de su energía!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted I've surfed and I have attended to CS meetings in different countries. All these experiences have been extremely positive!!


I host once, and I surfed in several occasions, that was awesome! a true experinece! Also, CS has been an extremely resourceful tool for me to meet great people when I have been abroad. In the CS community they are really open to meet new people and they have been a really nice starting point for me


I am interested in all different kinds of stuff, and I would say that all of them are related with my huge curiosity for life! Science, philosophy, arts, society...I love to learn and make the world a better place for all of us with small changes Cloth Napkin Revolution!!....and try to be as happy as possible with my sometime pessimistic point of view. The revolution starts in yourself!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

During one of my trips to Brazil I had the privilege to learn and share with people from an MST (Movimento sem Terra) acampamento near Belem. That experience put me in perspective with a lot of things....

Teach, Learn, Share

Everything tastes better when it´s shared.
