About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live from Mexico City!

ABOUT ME

I'm a people's person. I enjoy meeting new ppl with different cultures.
I have my goals very clear, I love my family I like to read, I love to watch movies... I LOVE to GO out.. always think everything twice (& I mean always)... I can be an asshole (sometimes)... I expect too much from people. Sometimes I just want to be left alone... I love to eat out... I would love to have more time to work out... Someday I want to travel the whole world... I think dreams may come true.....I always try to eat healthy food..I cant spend the whole day sleeping... My family is very important to me & I love them... If I could I would capture every moment of my life in a photograph.
Nuevo: I am currently living in Manchester, moved to the UK last year, altho I love sometimes gray days, I dont really like the rain, but it has been an amazing experience! Manchester rocks ! but I do miss the sun tho.
Done with Mancheter and now back in sunny Mexico, still haven't figure out where to live next, but I will start hosting right away as soon as I get a place.
Latest! Living in Mexico city, welcome to the jungle let get ready to rumbleee!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Be part of a project called Give the Gift of Sight I was a intrepreter volunteer during a week and a half. Luxotica is an organisation which gives glasses to people in need. There were almost 20 000 people helped.. A life-changing experience.
