About Me

Life and PhD brought me to Arizona, and now I have become a man of the desert. I love it.
I'm mainly interested in the relation between science, technology and democracy; exploring how can we build a more sustainable world through a better understanding of science and technology, citizenship, public engagement and civic participation.
From thermodynamics to yoga, I found my self immersed in a diversity of interests and passions. I like to enjoy my self and to enjoy others, to discover new worlds.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host, I couchsurf, I travel, I welcome... I've been on CS since several years now and to be honest, I'm kind of worried about the direction it is taking but I'm hopefull it won't loose its spirit of unity and community.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All of my CS experiences have been very positive... Since the first time I hosted back in the day at my mother's house... Trying to explain her the whole purpose and meaning of couchsurfing to her "It is just not about hosting strangers, mom... It goes far beyond that" till what it has become today.... amazing journey :-)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Teach, Learn, Share

"There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes
to see with the other eye."
· Rumi ·
