Funniest person alive or at least close to it =) Smart, Reliable, humble [see above, ha] and great to be around. Contrary to what my New York friends believe, my heart belongs to the Ocean//Beach & I love music + art
I would like to believe that I'm an extremely laid back with an open mind. Very loyal and fiercely protective of the people close to me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am the former organizer (host) of the Tuesday Weekly CS Meetups for the New York City Community. Always try to keep the positive vibes going whenever I host events. I still organize some large and small CouchSurfing events in and around the City such as picnics in Central Park or Outdoor Movie nights.
Hosting at my place when possible, 'Surfing' with locals when I travel (depending on time and space)
Giving local tips or even helping to connect other Couchsurfers with each other.
The main admin of the NYC CS WhatsApp chat group, also administering one of the Facebook CS groups, and lastly creating and maintaining the NYC CS - Instagram page. Sounds like a lot but I do have help and I'm always open for others to help us make this the best community in the world !
NYC-CS Facebook GROUP:
The CouchSurfing bug starting while attending multiple couch surfing events and meeting up with others Surfers that were traveling at the same time down in South Florida.
Since that time I have attended the Weekly Thursday CS meetup in "the Village", hosted Surfers @ my place, organized events of my own at the Jersey Shore and even in NYC !
Listening to most if not all forms of music, Appreciating various Art work, Skateboarding, & Commercial/Graphic Design.
Getting ready to start producing my own music. With that being said I'm learning to use new electronic musical instruments and gadgets, Love going to Movie Theaters & Broadway Shows (time permitting)
Enjoy Sports of all kinds and shape, a sucker for Standup Comedy and Action movies. Especially those classics that feature: Chuck Norris, Charles Bronson, Steven Siegal, Jean Claude Van Damme, just to name a few.
