About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Pursue Happiness!

ABOUT ME

My facebook profile

What most attracts me about life the great power and control we ALL have over it.

I have my opinion about everything and I'm willing to share it with everyone. I'm fascinated by the complexity of human relationships, and I'm always up for meeting open-minded, smart, crazy, sharp, energetic, strong willed, caring, bizarre, party, rock'n'roll people!

And what a great way of meeting such people CS has been!

Also, I just can't sit on my chair without thinking where my next travel will be! Traveling and learning are tightly bound! I like both so I keep exploring!

Analytic I'm always searching for an explanation about what surrounds me, without being too "brainiac".
Passionate I put my best effort in the things I love.
Determined I'm always keen to meet my goals.
Knowledge-seeking Sometimes culture is what makes the true difference The more you know, the merrier you will live.
Sporty Squash, basketball, gym, running... would like to do more!
Dreamer My dreams are more like long time goals with plans on how to get there!
Creative I like to discover new ways and approaches to do new and old things.
Ambitious I have a whole life to live and I want to take the best from it!
Malicious I love to laugh and talk about sexual related jokes, I'm italian after all ;)
Organized I can predict quite accurately when I will arrive even if this involves several trains / tubes.... but it's always worth being 2 hours late at the CS meetings, at least seems to work like that in London.
Loud As an Italian, expect me to talk quite loudy even when it's not the case.. and please, tell me when it's not the case, sometimes I really don't notice it as I'm focused on what I'm saying!
Geek We, geeks, will dominate the world one day, buahaauahahahaha (malefic laughter)
.. and modest obviously ;)

By the way, I'm crazy too. Maybe because I work in a office which is full of toy ducks... Think how you would feel like to wake up in the morning knowing that you're going in such a place...

PHILOSOPHY

It's just not enough to be yourself. You have to be your best self!

"If you want something in life, reach it and grab it"

"Whether you think you can or you can't do something, you're probably right"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

This community is really a great opportunity for everybody, so I'm willing to talk with a lot of people about this! I go quite often to the meetings in London and I try to host when possible.

Create your own visitor map!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted a little, surfed a bit in Europe, so far very good! Also attended the CouchSurfing WinterCamp in Budapest (2010 NYE) and joined the CS group at Sziget festival 2009! Damn good times!

I've now got a bigger spacious house so looking forward to host more!

Interests

In a word: pleasure. It's like, my pleasure in other people's leisure. (quote from Trainspotting)

Meeting people, traveling, sports, motorbikes, computers&technologies, parties, "enlightening" books, poker, new challenges, everything that can push me beyond my knowledge, psychology, human relationships.

Generally I like to keep busy doing stuff all the time!

Music, Movies & Books

MOVIES:
Scarface, Fight Club, Snatch, The Illusionist, Four Rooms, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Pulp Fiction, Queen of the Damned, Goodfellas, Love Actually, Memento, ZeitgeistTrainspotting (I've seen it so many times that the DVD has a hole in it ;)
Uh, and of course I'm a GREAT fun of Scrubs and Top Gear!
Not to mention Family guy, here in the Goodfellas version, and the (be ready for this) Happy tree friends.

MUSIC: Rammstein, Muse, Faith No More, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Guns'n'Roses, AC/DC, Queen, Aerosmith, Jamiroquai, Lordi, Finnish and German rock, Foo Fighters, Green Day, U2, Elio e le storie tese (italian awesome demential rock)

BOOKS: In general biographies of influential people, psychology, biology, geeky technical stuff, Lonely Planets etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once I tried to drink a glass of wine with my nose... don't try that at home... By the way my Italian crazy friends taught me some very weird ways of drinking. Ask me if interested.

A real amazing thing I've done has been to save a woman's life in 2007. That's something that makes me feel good every time I think about it.

Quite a crazy road trip around Europe with some CSers just met, back in 2008.

[Quote from Elio e le Storie Tese]
Have I told you the time I jumped from a table to another table?
And the time I held my breath for 1 min 15 secs?
And the time I won an army of 10000 people alone?
And the time I won a man alone with an army of 10000 people?...

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach me how to make desserts! And French!

I can obviously teach Italian, and body language, so that (if you are a girl) you can then go to Italy and flirt with all those passionate guys :D

Oh, if you traveled the world I would love to hear some of your stories. Traveling makes us better persons and more conscious about what's around us.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In
