About Me


discovering, growing, sharing


I feel attracted to the sublime, surreal, subtle and grotesque beauties of this world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I've had four visitors. All very enriching encounters!


Authenticity. Audacity. Humor. That could be anything. An brief witty interchange with a cashier, a spirited discussion, a tango dance, a revelation that comes to you upon waking from a dream.

Right now my creative outlet is dancing tango. I have a visual arts background though and am drawn to visual arts as well. I work as a freelance translator - so yes - working for a living is also something I do.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was in NYC on 9/11, 5 blocks north of the Twin Towers, and saw it all with my own eyes.

I've traveled a lot in my life and lived in three different countries. I experienced Eastern Europe at the height of the Cold War, Western Europe, China. I'm awestruck by the diversity of the human experience.
