About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To Be a Better Human. On a trip to Asia for 40 days: Thailand, Philippines, and Vietnam.

ABOUT ME

I was working remotely from Latin America, recognizing the land of some of my ancestors for 8 months and now back to Tkaronto.

Colombian born and Proudly Canadian! I love to explore the world through visual arts, flavours, colours, dialects, accents, and all senses :) I work in the Arts Scene as a Project Manager, Curator, Cultural Promoter, Arts Facilitator (currently teaching seniors stop-motion animation) and a bunch of other fun things. I am very happy to be back at CS. I have hosted many dozens of people but funny enough, I have asked only twice for it. The first time was in Chile and the person went MIA lol the second one in North Carolina and those folks were amazing! They picked me up at the airport and drop me off the day after. Also not long ago someone hosted me in Philippines as well. I love meeting people in general. My best friend calls me a Social Butterfly.

I have met awesome people since I became a member of CS. I think the world must be explored and we all shall jump into hundreds of lands that belongs to each one of us :)

PHILOSOPHY

Be Authentic, Respectful and Open-minded :) gay here and proud of it. At my place there is not space for disorganized, negative and/or homophobic people since I am gay and most of my friends are.
