About Me


I am documentary film director, and I travel to meet people and places to talk to and about in my movies.
Currently I am making movie about Orangutans - how they are going extinct soon, if we will not do anything. And yes, we can, and it's much easier than you think ;)

I like people, animals, talking, but also silence - in good company.


Be yourself, at least try

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I started few years ago, and did CS few times (not often :)). I like the idea very much and I wish to participate more often.

Currently I can't host people, as my apartment is much too small for that :(


I'm still new on couchsurfing, but i traveled quite lot throught whole Europe. I used to stay in my friends houses, and also I've hosted them in my house. I like people and I like learning about new cultures, and discovering new countries.

Music, Movies, and Books

Well, it's hard to say, there are so many!

Currently I am reading Ready Player One - very interesting book, especially because of my interest in Virtual Reality, of course. ;)
The book of my life - will always be Little Prince, as it's so simple and so much wisdom is there.

Movies -
I love too many of them...
But I hate Star Wars Prequels. If you hate them too - there will be mutual respect :)

Music -
I am not good in names, and I listen more for the sound and melody, less - for the lyrics.
The most I like sould, funk and dub.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Me? Well, I am trying to help the world with my movies, but as I am just at the beginning of my way - this is for the future.

But I saw some man doing amazing thing. I was passing a group of people one day, one of them was lying on the side walk. He was dead. Or at least looked like, very much.
And one man performed heart massage on him. It was scary, the man looked like it is doing nothing. For one minute... And second... This was upsetting. but suddenly - he started breathing! After very, very long time.
