About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My current mission is to gently attack the map from all of its beautiful angles

ABOUT ME

I was born in Brooklyn, NY. I love to travel! I took a 5 year adventure traveling, living and working in various countries accross our vast land. Now I'm back in Brooklyn where it all started. Couchsurfing is something that I've grown up with. For me it's gem because learning about/from people and culture is number one on my infinite list of interests that motivate me to travel.

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoy life; the world through my eyes is the perfect place to do so. If it's not through yours, sometimes you just need to change your bifocals. Keep your doors of opportunity open even in the winter. Make an attempt to give people the benefit of the doubt.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had many stay in my home and have stayed with many. it's a nice way to meet people and learn about culture and all that comes with it. I have made great friends couchsurfing. All the couchsurfers I've come across have a very positive vibe.

Interests

Music, Movies & Books

Dostoevsky and similar material. I like writing, movies, music that can be interpreted easily or studied profoundly. I enjoy movies from the 30s - 50s, spaghetti westerns, film noir, neorealism and silent film.
