About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be happy, write the first novel, run my first marathon.

ABOUT ME

Get a BSc in Psychology and a BA in Social and Cultural Education. I'm getting a MA in Sexual Dissidence at the moment.. I usually work as a Support Worker with street kids, homeless, drug addicts and disadvantages people. I love Indie Music and Books. I do write, 4 of my books are currently published in Italy (some poetry and short stories collection). I travel when I can, love experiencing new cultures. Africa was the trip that changed me most. I also don't eat meat.

To Hosts:
Most of my requests are pretty last minute, thank you for your consideration.

* I am very curious about your life and where you live
* I would love to cook with you
* I for sure clean up after myself
* I like local beer, food & wine
* I am not a party person
* I require little space
* I do not need your 100% attention but would like to get to know you
* I will not stay out late without you
* If you drink, I drink & if you don't, I don't
* I want to hear the music you like
* I adore crazy people & squirrels

TO GUESTS:
*I'm not a party person
*You should have a certain degree of independence, since I'm on a busy schedule
*I live in a Student Accomodation so you would sleep on an air mattress on the floor. The room is tiny.
*Bring your stories
*I would like to know about your culture and where you are coming from

PHILOSOPHY
