About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Move from love, not fear. Remember: you are not your thoughts---so who are you? That is to say: who am I?

ABOUT ME

I had a long "about me" I wrote many years ago. I deleted it, it sounded too "look at me!" I guess you could call me self-conscious.

"Self-conscious, but the opposite of egocentric." Yes, that sounds about right!

PHILOSOPHY
"Life's not about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself!"

...but I do think it's also a little bit about finding yourself, you know?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Music, Movies, and Books

Baraka, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Spaced + Hot Fuzz + Shaun of the Dead, Lola Rennt, Murder by Death, High Fidelity, Clerks, Her, The Shawshank Redemption, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, Some Like It Hot, Cloverfield, Fight Club, Back to the Future, Groundhog Day, Trainspotting, Memento

Music: I have a preference for Rock/Metal and a soft spot for Prog (Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Yes, Riverside, King Crimson etc.) I will listen to many many different genres as well: world music (Uakti, Trio Joubran), electronic (Justice, The Flashbulb), dubstep (Pendulum), soundtracks etc, and I tend to enjoy music that defies or blends genres. The popularity of a song or tune does not play a role in my choices or tastes.

Books: Conversations with God, Dune, The Dispossessed, Every book by Jose Saramago, His Dark Materials, The Art of Looking Sideways, What On Earth Happened (and Evolved), H. A. Rey's The Stars, Improbable, 1984, Brave New World, The Dark Tower, Life of Pi, Making Time, Eating Animals, Counting Sheep, books my Giorgos Pinteris, Mort, HG2G, Salonica: City of Ghosts, Death By Black Hole, The World Without Us, Watchmen, Y: The Last Man... this list has the potential to be the longest one.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I made it to Earth!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Greek, English, how to tell apart one star from another, party games, personality types, Greek vegetarian/vegan dishes.

Learn and Share: I won't tell you what I want to learn and share; you tell me what you want to teach and share, and we'll find our synergy together.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Cleaning, cooking, drinks, groceries, stories, music, a good time.
