After *seven years of travel (mostly hitchhiking & couchsurfing) to 30+ countries during which I was deeply involved in volunteer projects such as: cooking for children in townships in Africa, dressing up as a clown & making balloons to cheer the kids up in orphanages in Russia, doing crafts & spending time with cancer kids in India,  hosting seminars in Europe & the States to create awareness & raise funds for said projects + so much more… I arrived back in Australia with a backpack & nothing else to my name except for the many memories & my Mexican man! (*a small portion of the timeline has been condensed for simplicity.)

Im the main contributor here on Our Luna Adventures & am by no means a professional writer. Im just very passionate about travel & love sharing tips & tricks for affordable adventures!

I love adventures of every kind.. and wine, LOTS of wine. 😉


– I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) easy going Pisces muchacho who loves trying new food, lively music, spontaneous laughter and all forms of dance. Since coming to Australia in 2008 I have been involved in the construction industry but was a translator/interpreter/language teacher in my previous life.  I love my Lunas and home for me is wherever our family may be.

peaceful hardworking family man.

I was born in Mexico (lived there the first 27 years of my life) and as a child was exposed to humanitarian work from a very young age as my mother was part of a non-denominational missionary effort. There was a great amount of travel in my childhood all throughout the country (Mexico) as some of her work involved projects with indigenous communities and I believe this may have had something to do with my deep appreciation and connection with the native peoples of Mexico. Like Amber I was also involved in numerous social projects  in my teenage years and although I do not profess a religious faith of any kind the experiences lived as a child did instill in me the desire to connect with others and contribute in some way to our global community. It is likely I may have never left had I not met Amber in 2007 (I’m a lucky guy), but when she invited me to come meet her family in Australia I boarded a plane (for the second time in my entire life) and the rest is as they say history. –
