About Me




kind of a monkey
studied/working in artificial intelligence, and putting my nose into lots of other stuff :))


Rationality is overrated, I want to be happy within my skin, with my innards.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Here and there.


Generally I'm one of those whoe believe we are really out of touch who we are, that the circumstances we are living in with civilization are wrong and should be changed. Not with going back, but incorporating ideas what not we just know instictively but can see in "primitive" societies, anthropology studies, so on.

I believe that anarchism and other similar bottom-up organizing principles can bring us closer to these more human-optimal conditions, more egualitarian societies, more free-time/self-expression, of course more everything :))

For practical animalistic tendencies I really like contact improvisation (this is a kind of dance, play with weight and so on..), authentic movement, doing improv-drama, Laing like psychology, talking withou doing :) these kind of things.. the guy is a proto-crackpot :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Making in and escaping from Charle-Roi airport during a highly unexpected, very heavy snowfall (buses left cross-slided on the roads). The pathetic poem describing the glorious escape .. well it's so bad better left in the drawer :)

but grouping, forming, bribing, chasing, running, hoping and made it.
