About Me


See the beautiful world and all the life in it


I was born in Osaka, Japan, and afyer 4 years I moved to Ramat-Gan, Israel, where I lived for 7 years.. Then, at the age of 12 I moved to Singapore, finished high-school, moved to Kelowna and done my bachelors, now living in Vancouver and doing my PhD.


It's difficult for me to say a philosophy that is concrete, sincere, and defineable in a few sentences. Of course, as my life changes, my philosophy is affected by whatever present dynamics. A wiser fellow than myself said, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear, well, eats you..

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I enjoy traveling, and as a new member to couchsurfing I hope I can make use of this opportunity to enhance my traveling experience, as well as allow travellers to feel at home where I live. I have a smallish couch and a sleeping bag now so I can finally host the odd traveller


I had only two couchsurfing experiences so far, surfing in Belgium and meeting a local in Burma, and it was very positive! I look forward to getting more involved with the community soon... Also finally hosting some travellers, been great so far


Traveling, music, playing my accordion, yoga, theater, arts, sciences, learning, laughing, reading, sharing stories, world cultures...

Music, Movies & Books

only the good stuff... recently a lot of traditional folk music from Eastern Europe and Turkey. Books right now I've been reading a lot of nonfiction, works by Wendell Berry, Gary Snyder, EcoJustice Education, articles by Dorothy Day,

One Amazing Thing I've Done

For different people, different things seem amazing... If we ever get to talk, I am sure that the world will bring up amazing experiences for us to share

Teach, Learn, Share

I have an insatiable thirst for learning anything..

I believe that one learns like a snowball: whenever it grows bigger and acquires more knowledge, its surface area to all that there is to be learned grows as well. Indeed, the more you learn, the less you realize you know...

I enjoy telling, reading and listening to stories, jokes, anecdotes...

I also enjoy sharing, playing and talking about music, I feel that in today's world it is the best (and one of the only) ways into the culture and the people of a particular place where I am traveling.
