About Me

CURRENT MISSION

World domination!

ABOUT ME

I am on the pursuit of eternal happiness, and I try to inspire whoever I meet to join me on this journey. Well, people generally see me as laid back, lots of fun, happy, friendly and easy going person. I know the coolest places to hangout, got hook-ups pretty much every where, I love to entertain out of towners, I'm very hospitable, yet very undemanding as a guest. I can make delicious food more delicious, and my fluffy american pancakes and omelettes are out of this world.

I believe that if you give people a chance they will rise up to the occasion. I believe in the goodness that still exists in the world, I believe in being human. Perhaps, the poet says it better:

O Marvel,
a garden among the flames!

My heart can take on
any form:
a meadow for gazelles,
a cloister for monks,

For the idols, sacred ground,
Ka'ba for the circling pilgrim,
the tables of the Torah,
the scrolls of the Qur'án.

I profess the religion of love;
wherever its caravan turns along the way,
that is the belief,
the faith I keep.

Al-Arabi. From Poem 11 of the Tarjuman al-Ashwaq

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live and influence people with any good you know, never give up hope and find inspiration in the most unlikely of places. One love, one world, one creed.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Showing up is half the battle!

Interests

I love adventure, travel, archaeology, being in awesome places with awesome people. Love beautiful things, big cities, crazy people, stimulating conversations, spiritual pursuits, academia, outdoors, live music, street food and all the things that make living on Earth so much fun. I spend my time pursuing and relishing in all of the above, and little bit more.

Music, Movies & Books

All good things that move the senses

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Too many to list but can never forget: driving across country from San Francisco to New York; the first time on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem; day of hiking in the ancient ruins of Olympos (Turkey) and sitting on the big rock with the view of the entire Aegean Sea and reflecting on the mysteries of life; Sleeping under a gazzillion stars on a hill top in ancient Corinth; and of course, that night in Paris (ooh lala!).
