About Me


For me there is only traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly. —Don Juan

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet authentic local people and connect/learn their local culture


I am an uber science geek and love to learn about everything.
I also went to film school at NYU, cinema is a deep passion of mine.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music- I enjoy classic rock, alternative rock, classical, salsa, blues
Film- oh gosh, so many genres & favorite directors,
but I'm a big fan of classics by Sir David Lean (Dr. Zhivago, etc.).
My favorite genre is romance- those that pick you up
high and then break your heart in pieces. I feel so human & alive then.
