About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy myself traveling

ABOUT ME

Recently graduated B.Des in Visual Communication in 'Bezalel' Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, Israel.

I'm an Airbnb Photographer, shooting listings. In this job, I'm exposed to all kind of apartments, dorms and penthouses and get to see how people decorate their homes all over town. Best job in the world! I also find the time to work as a freelance graphic designer. I concentrate mostly in web design and motion design. wish to build my own app one day :) this is my portfolio who ever's interested: https://www.behance.net/Dannyfain

I'm engaged to my Rachel from Chicago and we're soon gonna have a baby girl coming!!! We're both vegetarians and animal lovers. In my free time I watch a movie, play piano and exercise.

PHILOSOPHY

Be positive, Always look for new ways for self inspiration. Try your best but don't be disappointed if you didn't succeed. Be happy with what you have in life.

Hope I'm done boring you with Clichés :P

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to assist travelers to get by in their trip and offer them a positive cultural experience. Show them hospitality and helping them on their way to their next location. And with all that, I hope I will change the ways of traveling and people will gain trust at each other all around the world.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

For 4 months I've been crashing on CS members couches in the U.S, Canada and Mexico. Other times I've been hanging around CS members as they introduced me their hometown. Usually, we would sit down for a coffee or drink. I'm also attending CS social meetings. it's a good way to get to know new people all around the world. The best one I had was in Rome, Italy where I attended a CS picnic and we had a great game of ultimate Frisbee.

I've been hosting many people from around the world and I had a great cultural experience. Some of them involves cooking, getting to now new games, new language and new ways of communication. So far I've been hosting people from Czech Republic, U.S.A, Jordan, and France.
