About Me


Wisdom, equanimity and adventure


People have described me as easy-going, relaxed and very adventurous. I am always discovering new things. I love meeting new people and I enjoy deep conversation, as well as fun chat. I enjoy hearing a diverse range of views on things. I try to be warm, open minded and kind.


Enjoying life is the most important thing. Enjoying life for the benefit of yourself and others. Be free and let others be free. Do whatever you want (as long as it doesn't make other people feel unhappy or unfulfilled).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have participated in the past by hosting people in my previous apartments in Kraków, Poland, and in Taipei, Taiwan. I was involved in the 1st International CS event in Kraków. I like to help bring a diverse range of people together to share ideas and experiences.


I have hosted and surfed through this website and much more through other contacts, during my many random travels in nearly 40 countries around the world.


I try to be open and take an interest in anything that comes my way. My main interests revolve around sustainability, psychology, philosophy, meditation and neuroscience. I also love doing a wide range of sports and adventure activities, including ultimate frisbee, hiking, camping, climbing, sky diving and yoga.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading. I read almost everything and anything. I always welcome suggestions. I particularly like books on sustainability, psychology, philosophy, meditation and neuroscience. I'm open to anything that sounds stimulating or interesting, whether fiction or non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So many things...
Sunrise and sunset among the South Pacific islands.
Spent ten years wondering... ten days in silent meditation...

Teach, Learn, Share

I would be happy to show people around and share my experiences from my travels. I would be willing to be a good talker and a good listener and help others develop their thoughts, feelings and ideas further.
