About Me

improve my italian and tango dancing


I want to make a difference. I care about people and how we live together. I laugh alot (and cry sometimes). I generally don't do things by halves.
I'm an outdoors enthusiast - rock climbing, telemark skiing, mountaineering etc. and love to spend time in the wilderness - with others or by myself.
Love to dance - especially Salsa and Bachata and Tango. I work as a doctor (Anaesthetist), but currently not working much as living in Italy is not conducive to working!
I'm also pretty relaxed and like to hang out with friends, listen to music, see theatre and see how other people live.


Be real

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


heaps of stories, but some of the more memorable include: hitchiking around Chile I stayed with some awesome people! Also stayed with a random guy out of the phone book in Canada because I got the wrong number for a friend!
Recently couchsurfed in NY - great to meet locals!
In Buenos Aires I met some great people! Such an incredibly vibrant cs community there!
