About Me

Motion graphics designer working for a video game developer. Lived in Central and south America for a few years to learn Spanish and salsa. I'm pretty chill and enjoy a drink, good conversation about culture, art, travel, politics, and dancing. Happy to learn any cooking tips.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like meeting people from different cultures, and I find that travelers (and especially couchsurfers) tend to be cool and interesting people.) I'm grateful for the people that have hosted me and want to return the favor. Also, i think there's something special about how CS operates outside of our market-centric world.
