About Me


Im Erik.
I've heard about couchsurfing from my friends. iv'e also heard about hospitality club way before couch surfing.
i could say ive been to a lot of places and i could say im well traveled. but still i wanna travel more places!
explore unique cultures, meet people.
im a shoppers guide.
i go lengths of places just to buy interesting, unique and now vintage collectibles.
thru this, ive went to different places just to buy these prized collections.
a friend of mine told me, i should get a job at the mall, by just helping shoppers what they want to buy or where they want to buy.
i love movies! interesting, independent any thing factual. also fiction. i also like music! from classical to modern to punk,metal,hardcore to electronika, techno, rap and the list goes on. right now im into photography, videography.

right now im living with my brothers and my mom.

(just change my address, still moving at the moment. will tell you guys when my house is alright to be accommodating. at the moment, the house has a lot of fixin to do. like the roof and the rodents that live in the roof.)

i would gladly tour you to malls, garage sale, bargain shops if you need anything you want to buy.

just message me if you want a shopping guide.

thanks and take care.


the greatest gift you could give someone is TIME. because when you give your time, you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back.
