About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Open up my heart and help others going in that direction. Experiencing things that help me understand the world, humanity, existence. Sharing those experiences.
Deepen my meditation practice, continue my understanding of eastern philosophy.

ABOUT ME

Few words to describe me as roommate/surfer: I am considerate, patient, curious and very friendly.

PHILOSOPHY

In constant evolution, with more and more Eastern influences coming to balance a western education.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I live in Brooklyn (Bushwick) and can host people here and there depending on how busy things are at the moment.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Austin Texas in April 2012 was my first time and I will never forget about it.

Interests

Understand stuff. Why things work the way they do, why people are here and not there.
Cinema (documentary and fiction)
Photography
Music (Mostly house/techno and Independant rock with psychedelic influences, but very open about any kind in general)
Cooking (assuming that you have to feed yourself on a daily basis might as well turn that into a pleasant daily experience)
Get lost and dance dance dance.
