About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hope to provide the best flexible environment and arrangements to visitors in need. It's a large world, and there is so much to explore, maybe too much for a lifetime.


When I was traveling with a friend to Siena, it was at Bologne, when we had arrived late, not knowing where to go, seeing that all the transportation has stopped. It was coming across a school, with a priest that invited us to stay for the night. The next day, we were off to explore and head back to Siena, where I had spent a semester to study.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got to examine and work on pre-columbian era mummies, while living in the Atacama desert in Chile for five weeks, around a small town of ~64 people. I am always amazed by the heat. So hot, I couldn't see myself sweat. Evaporated instantly.

A gold medal for the New York State Empire State Games in gymnastics still rings.

Teach, Learn, Share

The ability to see another person's perception, their world, and their own ambitions.

There are so many interesting differences in the way each and every one of us has grown up, faced challenges, explored, encountered, and making life decisions.

I enjoy hearing it all.
