CURRENT MISSION

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've lived in neighborhoods like this.. ..and neighborhoods like thisbefore I turned 10. And I asked any question anybody would have asked. Why do these people eat with their hands? Would you prefer the dirt floor huts or the elevated huts? Why are there miserable kids playing video games in that country, and how is this the happiest kid ever after I gave him only one balloon to play with? I later realized that the best way to understand why people think the way they do or do the things they do is to spend some time living a bit of their lives in their environment. So I think it's great that Couchsurfing mastered that concept and really helps people become aware of how others live from direct experience. It just opens your world up a bit, doesn't it?Spending a couple of years participating in the project, I really enjoy how this community is "OPEN" to almost anything and you can take it or leave it with whatever you think that means ;D Being part of this community is putting yourself in a position to learn things not only from a specific location, but from a massive diversity of people you wouldn't be likely to meet any place else. My drive here is to inspire and be inspired.

Interests

People, culture: ooh Latin America, MUSIC the soundtrack of your life, performing arts: theater guitar cello keyboards percussion DANCE, computer technology, exploring, competitive long distance running, painting, adrenaline, robots, hangovers, driving around, being in awe.

Music, Movies & Books

Love movies, anything colorful, action, adventure, comedy- just not into romance flicks.. boring! I'd be lying if I said I didn't like reading. Classic novels, music sheets, web page syntax.. and it all helps me out because I hate spelling things wrong. You know when you always see people correcting each others' spelling when they're arguing online? I actually don't mind it. Seems your credibility depends a lot on that these days.Music, I listen to almost everything, especially the kind that gets people dancing.
