About Me


Live, write, have fun and learn


I'm a writer, freelance journalist and tv presenter. I'm also part of the "plane people" I can't get off of them!!. I've been travelling like mad in these last years and still have much to discover!


Carpe diem. Get busy living, don't get busy dying.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have tried to help with acommodation for people. It hasn't been easy as I'm always travelling myself, but I will help any way I can.


I have hosted several people but, funnily I still haven't stayed at anyone's couch yet. That has to change!


Literature, art, sports, travelling, party, la bonne vie! Lately, I have discovered kitesurfing and can't get off my kite!

Music, Movies, and Books

I read A LOT. I like contemporary American writers (Roth, Auster, Palahniuk), Russian classics (Tolstoy, Dostoyevski, Chekhov), Germanophones from the Golden Age (Musil, Broch, Cannetti, Zweig). I love Hemingway.

I also like a lot of music, love soul, jazz, funk, but also electronic and rock. My favourite bands are probably Jamiroquai and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. My favorite DJ, a Russian maestro called Bobina.
