Bio: 
Couple of years ago I left my life in the city, I left my career as contemporary dancer and yoga teacher. Why? Because there was a lot missing from all this western theatre. I went to star a new life in the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. I lived there in the jungle, next to the ocean and the hills behind my home. In my backyard Tucans would come every midday to feed on the high trees. I'm my "magic garden" as I used to call it, there were Kukulas and Sloths chilling out, always with those smiles and wise eyes telling me to remember that life is a big game, full of magic but also illusion... In "my" beach, there was a big reef, colorful, fishes and snails swimming around. Monkeys were always present, specially the howlers, making me laugh with their noise.. Beautiful ""gold threat" Spiders decorating plants and corners, Hummingbirds approaching every morning to me, even a big Boa was in my living room one day! Oh! What a magical chapter! So many plants around, whispering, flowering...and the river... There is a wildlife refuge where my friend used to work, I went a couple of times and was enchanted about their work, I really wanted to do it but it was economically not possible at that time. My big dream though, it's been since ever, traveling! Go around the globe and get to see as much as the universe wants me to. So I went to Mexico, camped and hitchhiked for four months always in nature, cooking on fire next to the long river and cascades in San Luis Potosí to Wirikuta, the sacred desert. I've been traveling since then. I got a little sailboat and sailed for 9 months with my ex bf, then we went to the redwoods in California expecting to have a real encounter with a bear, unsuccessfully, even though we were sleeping for three nights in the forest underneath the old big trees. I'm now in Vietnam. I am traveling Solo in my motorbike and I am decided to prolong my trip for many many years until I get tired or get a family, so I plan to build a little simple house in a farm where I can grow my food, teach my children, have as many animal as I can afford and complete an autosuficient life in peace with myself and with Mother Earth and all her children. I adore animals, I cannot kill a fly, and I don't want to. I respect people, animals, plants, all as the same. I know we are all connected and I want to get closer to nature and t the same time keep growing and learning, about everything! My totem animal is the elephant, but I have no preference. All living beings and non living beings are creations from the same source, a source I have a very special connection to. My interest in volunteering with animals it to develop new skills that can allow me make my pass in this world worth it. I am decided my life has to be lived in pro of life itself. I've done many things, and nothing but traveling has fulfilling me this far, because what I was doing professionally was no more than theatre for people who paid a ticket to enjoy and give applauses. That was developing my ego in a depressive way. I know better now who I am and my mission is getting clearer. I need to continue experiencing life in all its ways. I am ready to give. I am ready to share. I am available to be a tool for the divine. My arrows are pointing out to the wild. It looks that just going to national parks and reserves is not even close to what I need and what I can offer. I believe that by spending time helping those beings that other members of my own specie have disrespected, by taking their territories out from there, slaving them, killing them and making vil business with them, is a way to take the power back from the unscrupulous, and giving the new generations refreshed faith and hope. I believe there is still time! I am going to be part of the change I want to see in this amazing world we live in!
