About Me

When using CS I try to minimize awkwardness of first meeting.

As a host I will show you around the place and introduce roommates as soon as you arrive, if you are not in despaired need of toilet : ) Provide towel, room to leave your bags, show where is your sleeping place. Tell what is and is not OK to do in the flat. Do not worry, we are very relax and understanding.

As guest I have tendencies to take the initiative as most of the time I am the one with more CS experience. I will ask questions to get logistics out of the whey.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS philosophy, and longer interactions that it provokes creates great opportunity to get to know people.

I have a habit of searching kindness and I am finding it often.
I am delighted when, through CS, people are learning to trust each other. I am proud to be a part of it : )


I'm interested in: behavioral economy, psychology of attractiveness, happiness.

I like cycling and walk a lot
I meditate vipassana.

Music, Movies, and Books

I found a Star Maker book by Olaf Stapledon and liked the bold and imaginative vision of all time and wast space fascinating. Its pre-WWII perspective refreshing.

The last movie that I got a bit obsessed with was The Lobster from 2015, if you like it in the first watching, do yourself a favor and watch it again, you will understand the early scenes this times.

First five seasons of Adventure Time are great.
I am waiting for new episodes of Rick and Morty.
