About Me

creative, active, spontaneous, responsible, passionate, silly. I'm open to new experiences and love exploration, even in my own city!


"work smart not hard." "a fish will forever think its stupid if he tries to succeed on dry land" my new thing is that i try to live each day as a character forming one, realizing each decision we make turns us into the person we will become.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

when I walked down the streets of Burjassot, Valencia, Spain and got myself lost. After an hour of walking I stumbled onto a free musical that was showing entitled Ave Mania and it was the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Another awe-inspiring moment was New Years in Brussles Belgium when i got to stand between the old town and the new town and seeing all the lights and people was just beautiful.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can cook almost anything and would love to make something together. i like making up exercise routines if you want to get in shape, and i am good at searching for things online and editing if you need help with those things. oh yeah, and behavioral psychology. i looove talking about it, random but super true :)
