About Me


Proving there is no limits. One day at a time.


I like the idea that a person can achieve anything. So i am always looking to achieve some new thing in my life.

I enjoy playing sports. Reading ( though i need to make more time for this). My work is taking up too much of my life currently.

Love to travel, am single so is easy for me to do. Recognize the world is becoming a smaller place so we need to all put our differences aside. We are not so different really.

What else ? Like all kinds of music, from dance / Techno to Cuban Jazz / Salsa, throw in some Rai and classical. Basically a bit of everything.


No such thing as can't.
The world is whatever you want it to be.
A mans actions speak louder than his words.
Believe in yourself.
Make a difference.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
