About Me

Bikepacking... it's what I do now.


To finish my masters degree thesis.


I think I'm chill and very simple. I can make people laugh, so that's a good signal that maybe my sense of humor is not so bad. I'm always thinking of random stuff and I always got lots of ideas about everything, some of them might be annoying to some people, but the majority doesn't give a crap.
I always try to appreciate almost every stuff of my ordinary life, I love my friends, my family and my country.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing is a great way to know what's going on with a country or a region. It's not about watching the monuments or taking the city tour with the distilled version of the city, but to hear the points of view of one part of the citizens (the traveler ones). You really get to know more of personal/regional philosophies and I found this as a great opportunity to develop a vast point of view about us: Individuals living in their personal realities developed in a specific place. We're not alone, there's always nice and good people, to meet and to learn from; and I'm glad I've met some of them by this means.


I'm a biologist working in sustainability problems around Mexico, specially in the water/human intersection. I'm also very interested in design and how it affects to us.
I love music and I can play the guitar, I had recorded a couple of songs, rock and jazz kinda thing, so if someone starts to talk about music I could keep going and going. I'm very passionate on the things I like.
I like to climb and I also like bikes. I'm a daily commuter I love fixed gear and mountain bikes and looking forward to a big bike touring adventure.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music, movies. Everything that's well done and made with good intentions will be highly appreciated. I'm not that into books, I really like Jack Kerouac, but time has showed me that maybe I'm not that reader kinda guy.
I will love to chance that tho.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've crossed the Baja California peninsula on a bike, from Tijuana to La Paz. It was something like 1,600 km of pedaling, sigh! Coolest thing ever!

Teach, Learn, Share

Lately I've enjoyed so much to work with NGO's, and I love this feeling of sharing knowledge and setting objectives in conjunction.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook for people and preparing the breakfast is one of the things I'll try to do in reward.
