About Me


I am currently completing my Master's degree and traveling in between.

I was born in Mexico and raised in Arizona in the United States. I am a trained English teacher. I currently live in Hermosillo, the capital of the northern state of Sonora, where I'm a full-time graduate student and a part-time language teacher at the high school level . I'm a person who likes to meet people from all walks of life because I believe that I can always learn something new. I enjoy going to art museums, galleries, bars with good music, the beach, libraries, having my morning coffee, walking around and observing different people and objects. Other things that I enjoy are reading, watching movies, running, and I also like going to vegetarian restaurants, though I am open to any suggestions. Overall, that is my idea of fun and every now and then I enjoy partying, well who doesn't?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm currently living in the city of Hermosillo where I try to participate by attending the different events that are organized by the wonderful Couchsurfing members here.

During my travels I like to use CS to meet kind and friendly people who are willing to show me around the city :) I've already met a few people and that experience has been great and I've also attended several CS events, very fun and interesting.


I've been hosted in Chile, Colombia and Ecuador and they were all amazing experiences. I really loved how different it is to get the local perspective and not just the tourist side of traveling. I've also met a lot of friends with CS.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking the Cotopaxi Volcano in Ecuador and reaching the glaciers at 5000 meters above see level; now that was extreme. Also, being in Machu Picchu was wonderful and going to Rio de Janeiro during the New Year's eve party was crazy and fun.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think that one can learn from everyone really. I'm a English Teacher and languages are a great passion for me. I speak Spanish and English, and I 'm learning French. I would like to learn Portuguese and Italian.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I really like to cook vegan dishes :) and I can teach a thing or two about that. Also, I can teach a bit about Mexican cuisine. I can help you practice your Spanish or English. Maybe have a drink and a good conversation.
