About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Taking a chill pill

ABOUT ME

I'm a UX Designer working at a Financial company and Living on the Upper West Side.

I love technology and have been a vegan since 2007.

Living in a newly refurbished and very clean studio on the Upper West Side. I'd love to start hosting some people here. While I respect the diversity of beliefs etc, my only non-obvious rule at Casa Kochanowicz is **no animal products** please. :)

PHILOSOPHY

"God loved the birds and made the trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages."
-Jacques DeVal

"On the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons."
-Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

"I got kicked out of ballet class because I pulled a groin muscle. It wasn't mine."
-Rita Rudner

"A millionaire will pay $25 million dollars to go into space so that he can have mind-blowing view of all the countries that could have desperately used $25 million dollars"
-Conan O'Brien, "In the Year 2000" segment

"The average man, who does not know what to do with his life, wants another one which will last forever."
-Anatole France

"Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand"
-Kurt Vonnegut

"There is enough suffering in the world and if you choose to physically ingest it, then you should at least be aware of what you're doing rather than assuming that that's your right as a human being to do it."
-Thom Yorke, Radiohead

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
-Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

"On the first day, man created God."
-Anonymous

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I don't get out to the events terribly often, but I try to hook people up with the service and host now and then.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfed Europe like crazy, hosted some folks in Omaha and here in NY.

Interests

Veganism, design, minimalism, typography, coffee, Radiohead.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

New York has been pretty amazing to me, really. As soon as I started living here, it was abundantly clear this was right for me. I was fortunate to quickly start my career and make a good living and stay in a nice place in a safe neighborhood.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've learned from my travels, that as an American I have absolutely nothing to teach about my culture, it's already on TV for the rest of the world.
