About Me


Adding value to the lives around me


I'm a software engineer and entrepreneur. I studied philosophy and fine art in school. I'm currently working on a biotech startup, while also working as a freelance software engineer.


Stoicism + Epicureanism. (Kinda like the book Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis). Also, Zen Buddhism is cool.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd love to travel someday. I figured if I made a profile on CS, that would increase my chances of traveling...


Philosophy, Martial arts, breakdancing, reading, rock climbing, crossfit and athletics, swimming
