About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To work work work, and to change the world thru research and investigation :-), and of course to travel and meet exiting people and cultures

ABOUT ME

I came to Chicago to work and in the mean time im planing the rest of my life, well just deciding what i want to do next, hopefully some work on renewable energy research, but some traveling or engineering work is good!

PHILOSOPHY

I dont think life has a purpose per se, so i just give it the purpose i want, wich is to be just happy, to live a lot, to have stories to share, to have a laugh with good friends and to actually make a difference, even if it is just a small one. To leave the world a little bit better than it was when i arrived.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I usually attend the local meetings and I have a couch to share. I haven't hosted anyone yet but I'm looking forward to it. Just no last minute requests please.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had a very good experience in Darmstadt with a lovely couple and a cool girl, and in Frankfurt with other girl that practically save me from sleeping on a park bench, so so far i only have good memories from my couch surfing experience.

Then I meet a really cool girl and a smart guy in Bern, a few months later a nunch of really funny and cool greek guys hosted me in Madrid, and then walked around Rome with a bunch of travelers I met in a bar thanks to CS :D.

Interests

I like to hear new music all the time, learn about anything, im a very curious guy.
