About Me


I'm travelling around the world, spending some time also in my hometown (Palermo), but I still need to find where to settle down.


I spent quite a long time outside my country (I left Italy in 2006, first to study and then to work), and I really appreciate the different cultures and viewpoints that one can discover around the world.
My education background is in physics, but I'm also interested in finance. And I really like to cook (and eat), read, play games (mainly roleplaying and board games), and take long walks. I'm always looking for nice (and patient) travelmates, so if you plan to travel around the world (without spending too much, honestly ^_^), drop me a line as well.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I had no chance to offer a couch to host people (living in small rooms in London and Singapore didn't help in this). But maybe I'll do that in the future, when I finally settle down. However, Couchsurfing helped me to find interesting events during my travels, and meet several friends.


I suppose my interests are quite self-explaining. But if you have any recipe you think I have to try, I really like to cook dishes from everywhere ! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I like old music bands, and I was so happy when I was finally able to attend a Paul McCartney's concert in London !
I like fantasy, sci-fi, and thriller movies and books. Do you know Dean Koontz ? :)
