About Me


Relationships engineering


Open about sharing my thoughts and feelings. Logical kind of thinker. Irrational actor. Continuously expanding my comfort zone. Using happiness as a way to bring more fun things into the world. I blog about that here: swiftbricks.com/blog

Non smoking, non drinking since Jan 2013. Using sleep deprivation for consciousness state switching :)


It's always too early to give up.
If you're not breaking things, you're not learning fast enough.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Avid listener of a handful of stories by a friend of mine. Was super fascinated by my first week-long trip recently. Addicted ^_^

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Running naked with two shepherd dogs in rural area while it snows.
Went from 20 to 150 pushups in 2 month.

Teach, Learn, Share

I strongly believe that education is going to change the world for the better. In particular I think that's a beautiful way to cut all the wars[1].

I use every opportunity to learn something new and share it with others. It may be as simple as preparing some unusual foods(e.g. burrito), giving lightning talks on a topic I'm excited about or teaching programming to kids.
