About Me


Move fast, live slow


I'm a happy person! I like to do what I want and follow dreams no matter where they take me. I'm currently finishing up my degree in transportation design. My passions are leading me to design vehicles for developing countries. I enjoy empowering designs in all aspects of life.I'm a pretty mobile person, I haven't stayed in one place for more than 8 months in the last 6 years. A chaotic lifestyle but an enjoyable one. I'm trying to live with less things, moving sucks.I thrive on experience. I don't recall my travels by thinking about the cities I visited or the monuments I saw there. I like the experience of being there, the colors, smells and sounds. The way a random person helps you on the street, the cheering of the local sports team and smell of a coffee(or chai, tea etc.) in the cafe in the morning. I like to judge a city on how far a smile gets you. I think every place has a different rhythm and to enjoy a place you need adjust your rhythm.


I like zen buddishm. I don't consider myself a follower of any religion though.

A smile is all you need to survive anywhere in the world.

I think drawing is seeing, so often we just take photos and forget the scene the next instant. When you have to draw or paint something you notice the light and texture of a building, the pattern of a dress or shape of a tree, your forced to see something then translate it to paper.

I want to see the world which means I have to draw it :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It's such a great way to move, I met many people who couchsurfed on my travels so I decided to dive in!

My first experience was couchsurfing in Colorado(usa) skiing for a couple weeks with my brother. We stayed with some great people and now In europe it's only gotten better. I've met many great friends and now flatmates through couchsurfing in Italy.


Anything outside: Climbing, skiing, hiking, kayaking, surfing, backpacking

I also enjoy artistic endeavors such as painting, drawing, sculpture, and COOKING! i like getting creative when i cook, If you lucky maybe I can make one of my interesting dishes!
