About Me

I'm in Israel for the last decade, after spending a dozen years in Armenia, traveling around a part of the world, and having some adventures. I recently moved to Netanya, after living for a few years in Be'er Sheva and Jerusalem.

When at work, I am a computer scientist; otherwise, I practice Taijiquan (mostly chen), go to yoga classes, live performances, reasonably quiet pubs, diverse meetups, and hike and wander around the country.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like sharing what I have, and having guests --- provided guests can care for themselves when I am too busy or need my own time. I always had guests, and like having people around.

I also travel often, but didn't think about couchsurfing before, maybe I'll try soon.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I taught a minister of one of big countries to use computer mouse, and was almost shot by her bodyguards in the process. I am not sure I can name-drop here, but will tell you the story if you ask when we meet.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live in a small but cozy house. The house has two porches, two separate rooms and common space. I have more than one bike, including a spare bike for guests, an electric scooter and a few longboards (with wheels, that is) --- and can share these means of transportation with you.

I can share with you my experience of Israel, Taiji practice, nice places in Netanya and around. OK, I can share with you my time, too, if we find this appropriate.

Countries I’ve Visited

Armenia, Czech Republic, England, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Portugal, Scotland, Spain, Ukraine, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Armenia, England, Israel, Russian Federation
