About Me

Hi! My name is Joaquin (friends call me Joaco) and I am originally from Argentina, but currently based in Houston, USA.
I actually have an engineering company there that allows me to work remotely. Therefore every couple of months I take some time to travel and work around the world, enjoying meeting people and sharing experiences. So you may find me in Houston, or sometimes in Argentina, or Europe for the summer 🙃, when Houston gets too hot!
In the past I have done two round the world trips as a backpacker before starting my business in US. I used couchsurfing to crash on couches and it has been amazing! So many great experiences and stories shared. Now, I host people in US, and when I travel, I usually get an airbnb but love meeting hosts and travelers. So looking to hang out with locals or travelers! From getting a beer, going for a run, or just getting together for breakfast, I enjoy every small moment and I am very enthusiastic about life :). So txt me, I bring all the good vibes! 👍

I believe in the mission of CS. I believe in the chain of favors and if you give good, it will eventually come back.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy sharing experiences. Hosting or being hosted. It is always a great experience.
Many people stayed in my couch in Houston, and Argentina as well.
