About Me

I'm a photographer currently traveling Japan.

Being born and raised in a gigantic crazy place like Mexico City taught me a lot. I've found myself in all kinds of situations and met all kinds of people. It has been a great adventure and I am grateful for it. But now, it is time to travel the world and what better way to do it than meeting locals and staying with them.

There is nothing I love more than taking pictures. I started studying photography when I was eighteen and very soon realised it was something I would do for the rest of my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's easy to get lonely in a place where you don't speak the language and I think Couchsurfing could be the perfect way to make friends.

I also find the idea of staying in a hotel extremely boring. I love meeting new people from different places and backgrounds.


I love movies. When I'm not traveling I watch at least one movie every day. I love to read. I dance since I can remember (Contemporary Dance and Ballet).

Teach, Learn, Share

I would be happy to teach about photography and all the things I've learned working in this industry. And maybe take some portraits of my host to give to them as a gift.
