About Me

CURRENT MISSION: Welcoming every day with a smile :)

I lived to Canada in order to study English but I've been surprised by living in a multicultural community. I would like to meet more people from different countries and share experiences.

Nowadays I am studying in the charming city of London, UK. I had the possibility to live and study in South Korea, Finland and Thailand, it was a great experience that changed my view of the world.

PHILOSOPHY: Lifelong learning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hosted some international friends at my home in Italy before I met CS, so I think I'm totally into the CS spirit!

I travelled in Korea and US, and CS helped me to find a lot of shelters and meet incredible people. I had great experiences, also I had fun to meet new friends.


I love gardening and cooking: let's share recipes and gardening suggestions!
Also I like indie movies, Icelandic music, reading news from around the world.
I love photograph and shoot pictures, especially portrait.
Other interests: graphic art and graphic novels, modern and contemporary art, industrial design, swimming and walking.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am very eclectic when I choose something. I try to listen, watch and read as much as is possible.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Some whales played with me and diving around when I was in a tiny tiny boat near Victoria. Oh, I have never seen so huge teeth. They totally showered me with they blowhole.

I ate blowfish in Daegu (with two charming girls). It was delicious and I am still here!

I had hilarious conversations with drunk salarymen in Tokyo's underground bars.

Memphis's CS ambassador organized a Tennessee's traditional BBQ to celebrate CS birthday. I participated with a lot of other people who meet there for the first time, even they live in the same city!

I can teach you how to do an origami paper crane. Maybe...
