About Me


acceptance/living/discovering/performance-art/making art


I am enjoying the afternoon light at this moment, deciding wether to make myself a tea or not.
I made it. The tea, I mean.
What can I say 'bout me? I am kinda curious and excited about being myself these days (still worried about eating toast everyday,though)...up's and down's,I guess.
What might be useful to know about me is that I tend to make a celebration out of pretty much everything, I like seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary moments and viceversa. Sometimes I get hyper about it.I might look overexcited, but it's genuine, really.
I am curious by nature, I like to learn stuff and about stuff.
I like sharing as well.
I like stories and I enjoy soaking myself in their atmosphere.I like being on the road and enjoying what comes on the road,I'm also a kind of nomad...listening to people's stories, living stories,sharing stories.I'm very interested in communication, as it shows up, with silence and with words.
I study art, I love art and I think that it's everywhere,from our daily interactions to exhibitions in museums.
I enjoy games,whether they are just made-up or already classics.It seems that I've fallen in love with everything that involves throwing a ball from one to another, there's a special form of connection there.Good ol'ball y'a know? The second best invention of humankind after the weel!And not to forget about board games, so if you have know something and you're willing to share, I'll be delighted.
I love flea markets, with their oddities(and boxes where you can dig and find amazing stuff) and I love coffe.
Mind you, my relationship with time is quite special,we get along so well that sometimes I just don't realize how it passes.I simply love wandering the streets with my headphones on and what I name to be 10 minutes might be 2 hours. I'm sure the time doesn't mind, though.
Beeing alive,that's what I'm trying to do.And make some art on the way.And improve my vegetarian diet.


Each and every person is whole universe.Ordinary is extraordinary, extraordinary is ordinary.I'm in the point where I start to believe in our power to love and actually live.I'm aware in the same time that we have a huge power of destruction and we are constanly harming ourselves and others.There is a balance somewhere and I'm trying to accept that.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to be who I am,not hurting others if possible,not hurting myself if possible, but enjoying and learning as much as I can of what comes on the road.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am here.


I had my CS experience when I arrived in Dublin and I must say it was a great start. I met amazing people who became my friends and I had great experiences that I'll always remember with a smile on my lips. This experience means a lot to me, I'm still amazed by the wonderful people I met.


I'm interested in the amazing ordinary moments that bring people together.I don't mind them being extraordinary as well.Communication.(I'm really devoted to compassionate communication, also called non violent communication,so you'll probably hear me mention NVC a lot).Art.Being alive.Vegetarian cooking.
Besides that: literature, film, music(I have quite an obsession with listening to music), traveling, theatre, hitchiking, performance art, sociology, philosophy, history, politics, cultural backgrounds,flea markets,games in all their forms and as it seems from the last months, sports.

And besides that:hugs,going exploring old houses/factories,dance,train travelling,fashion though I don't always show it,10 ways to use a cardboard box,coffe,old kitschy objects,old fashonable objects,randomness as a concept,minimalism as well as over-loaded with stuff spaces,spontaneity,snails,cartoons,old posters,improvising stuff in general,out-of-time afternoons with friends and summer light.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sharing day-by-day-that-became-magical moments with friends.Little things that make life worth living.
Climbing down a wall to get to the railway and then walk on the railway about 1km to get a football ball back at 1'o clock in the night,randomly pretending to be a wall in an just made-up game, spontaneously decideing not to sleep and staying awake 36hours,stuff like that.Oh,yeah, and having the opportunity to shoot a 16mm film with an old russian camera:).

Teach, Learn, Share

Small or big, everyone has something to share.We can all be teachers and students,without any hierarchical statut.
