About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Become a full fledged architect without losing my mind.

ABOUT ME

I'm a 32 y/o designer/architect (well not quite done with my internship). I love photography, literature and architecture. I really love music too; I play the guitar and try really hard to play the piano (I'm bad).

What else? I have a long term love/hate relationship with Russia; I lived there for a year, and now I just keep going back.

PHILOSOPHY

Getting lost.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well so far only twice, but both times were fantastic experiences. In Murmansk and Hamburg, I saw stuff I couldn't have seen otherwise. I now have a free room in my apartment in Montreal, so I'm planning on hosting people as soon as I find a bed for them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Just twice, in Hamburg and Murmansk.
