About Me


To host and to be hosted.


I am trying to trek the globe and to explore all that it offers. Hosting fellow surfers would give me an excuse to venture outwards, uncover hidden gems and secrets, and of course, make new friends in the process.


To think with a critical mind but not to be cynical. To indulge and enjoy but not to be hedonistic. I struggle with the latter; big time.


Photography comes first. The rest: Languages, International Affairs, Traveling, Community, Reading, Dancing, Amateurish DJ'ing, Latin, World Music, Biking, the Beach. And a good conversation off any tangent.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Stargazing on broken papayas at the back of a truck during a hitch-hike; the Ecuadorian bautizo of my godson; coastal sunset along "la ruta del sol"; watching the sunrise from the sand dunes of Jericoacoara; walking in the Omani desert under the 50 degrees celsius weather and nearly killing myself in the act.
