About Me

Living out of my backpack since '16.

Ask and you shall learn!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to understand why it is that I travel, and all that floats to my mind is traveling experientially. CS offers inimitable experiences that cannot be replicated in each hangout, each home, each conversation.


- Music. I love music. Doesn't matter the genre.
- I love to read and write
- Photography is a passion as well
- Yoga and relaxing the mind (ie. naps, but we'll call it "meditation")
- Programming & OSS
- I love to run, but that isn't very interesting
- Listening
- Chess
- Hiking & Trekking
- Sport Climbing
- Cooking
- Art & Art History
- ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE: I love having deep, intimate conversations.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Anything -- a typical response. If you haven't listened to Hiatus Kaiyote though, CLICK HERE & sit (or stand) in harmony and amazement.

Movies: American Beauty, Samsara, Spirited Away and Her. Not too heavy on watching movies, as much as I am a reader, though, I will always be down to watch an episode of Rick and Morty or Community.

I am a voracious reader, so to choose a favorite is blasphemous to the interminable list of great writers and poets. To name but a few:
Henry Miller, Sylvia Plath, George Orwell, Charles Bukowski, Friedrich Nietzsche, Milan Kundera, Simone de Beauvoir, Haruki Murakami, Albert Camus, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Rebecca Solnit... ++ much more

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Inhale oxygen, exhale carbon dioxide.

Teach, Learn, Share

What I can teach/share
- Deep Conversations
- Could help you with your English. I obtained my CELTA in Barcelona back in August 2016, so I semi-know what I'm talking about
- Could teach you the basics of web development
- Share stories of my travels
- Jam out on the guitar or piano
- I can take portrait photos of you with my handy-dandy camera
- How to make & maintain a fire

I love learning about the people I meet, the cities in which I lay my head, and the language which occupies the entire country and (perhaps) beyond. Also, if you know how to juggle or do card tricks, expect a ton of questions.
