About Me


Just moved to the north coast


I'm an architect working on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Born and raised in Santo Domingo by Spanish parents. Went to a bilingual school and got my master's degree in Architecture in the wonderful city of Chicago so my English is pretty good. I'm an open person and love meeting new people and making friends.


Life is short. Find your purpose in life and do the things you love NOW.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't been active for a few years but now I'm ready to participate in whatever way I can to make someone else's visit to my country as pleasant as possible.


I've meet many amazing people through couchsurfing. I had great experiences while living Santo Domingo and made lifelong friends during my stint in Chicago, which to me is one of the strongest CS communities.
