About Me

When new people meet me for the first time, most think that I'm a lovely and caring guy that makes delicious vegan food, but the truth is that I am a cold hard engineer. Asking personal questions directly is a common practice for me, but don't get offended by that, I am probably just somewhat Israeli :-) . If you are not bounded to stigmatic thinking we could be great friends.

*** MY GIRLFRIEND ***
Natalie is probably the best woman I could hope for, she's my complete opposite. She is a kind loving person that listens more than anyone else, a social psychologist by profession and a vegan chef at home. Natalie is also an experienced gatherer of edible wild plants and mushrooms, and she's crazy on cats.

*** MY MISSION ***
Save nature from humankind

*** PHILOSOPHY ***
Humankind should stop bringing offspring until our population equals to that of other large terrestrial mammals.
I truly believe that we are not superior to all other creatures on this planet, but due to the fact that we are more destructive to our environment, it is our responsibility to change our ways to survive as a species. My life is dedicated to make this change.
Personal ideals must be implemented in our lifestyle and daily decisions, and one mustn't be indifferent to others in need.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It is highly recommended for everyone to host as much as possible, and generally to share your resources with others. That's a must for a life of happily ever after.

*** HOW WE PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING ***
We host, surf, reference and recommend others of the CS comunity.

*** COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE ***
I had lots of hosting and some great surfing experiences. many times thanks to the CouchSurfing.com website but sometimes thanks to casual generosity.

Interests

I try to utilize to the fullest this reckless phase in life called "youth". I love worldwide bicycling, trekking and skiing. At home, I enjoy movies, crossword puzzles and playing with my nephews. I love to cook special dishes, the stranger the better.
