Become a full fledged architect without losing my mind.
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.
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.
Just twice, in Hamburg and Murmansk.
Music, architecture, people, old books, old things, rusty things.
