About Me

CURRENT MISSION I AM NOT HOSTING PEOPLE WHO JUST WANT FREE PLACE TO STAY WHO I HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON WITH. I CAN HOST AND ASSIST BUT PREFER GAY OR GAY FRIENDLY SURFERS.

ABOUT ME

I AM AN INTERNATIONAL TRAVELER WHO HAS MET GREAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN VERY HELPFUL, FROM AUSTRALIA, ISRAEL, ARGENTINA, BUENOS AIRES, SPAIN, HUNGARY AND MANY PLACES IN BETWEEN SUCH AS HOLLAND, FRANCE, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRIA AND BEYOND. I AM WILLING TO ASSIST NEW YORK TRAVELERS WITH INFORMATION, A COUCH, AND OR FRIENDSHIP. I AM A GAY SINGLE MALE BORN IN BROOKLYN NEW YORK, VERY HAPPY, WITH GREAT FRIENDS AND DESIRE FOR FUN. BUT I DON'T DRINK SMOKE OR DO DRUGS. CAP LOCK ON BUT NOT SCREAMING. LOL. I know Professional Level Massage, but only do it as a hobby, not for money. I also read Tarot Cards, and hopefully posted photos showing a bit of who I am.

PHILOSOPHY

TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED, AND HOPEFULLY IT IS WITH LOVE AND RESPECT, CARINg, SUPPORT and HUMOR!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted about 32 times, and have had only positive experiences. I have never surfed, because I live alone in Manhattan, and only really travel for vacation, so prefer to have my privacy. I am open to meeting people when I travel but rarely use couchsurfers for that. When I travel I prefer to rent out my apartment to pay for a place to stay where ever I am travel to. I like having things in common with my house guests, not seeking to be a free hotel. I live in 2 room studio so no separate bedroom, just separate bed. I lend a set of my keys to my guests because I prefer them to be able come and go as they please and not rely on me being home to feel welcome. I have no curfew and share my food, free time and like to make sure my guests leave loving New York, and feeling at home. If you would like to surf my couch please tell me something about yourself. I prefer surfers with references who don't do last minute requests.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have met great people and have made a few friends on here. I really feel lucky to meet nice people from around the world whether on couchsurfers or while traveling. I was treated amazingly well in Tel Aviv, Sydney, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Prague, Ibiza, Vienna, Sydney, Montreal, and Auckland. As a result, I have friends around the world and love to see them either here in New York, or where they live.
