About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My current mission, as cheesy as it may sound, is to get people from different cultures to get along better. Too many problems happen in our world of what I consider to be silly misunderstanding of our non-written cultural rules. Lets fix that! :o)

ABOUT ME

That I'm too patient and understanding.

PHILOSOPHY

/singing/ R E S P E C T, oh what you do for me...

:o)

I always treat everyone the way I like to be treated. It's so simple that it's beautiful...no?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet...at least not with CS. I'm new to this...but love the concept!

Interests

Culture culture culture. I love trying to integrate myself as much as possible when traveling. As generic as it my sound, I love music. I would much rather spend an evening listen to all sorts of music than watching television (In fact, I don't have a television, it's like junk-food for the brain). Lately I've been spending most of my time working...but I love what I do so I can't complain. I've been very lucky to meet a lot of amazing people while traveling and living in different parts of the world, and surely will meet more amazing people in the future. Ahhh, what a wonderful world. :o)

Music, Movies & Books

Wow...that would be an endless list!!

My music range is pretty large...though lately I've been listening to a lot of classical music. I've recently been reading a lot of history books...so classical music which I've always liked just makes so much more sense when you understand more the context in which it is composed. I also listen to everything from Armin van Buuren to Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Roberto Torres, Mr.Scruff, Quantic, Rone, Fat Freddy's Drop, Alice Russel, Sebatian Tellier, etc etc etc. I', a HUGE fan of TED.com...always interesting. As far as Movies, I'm an easy audience. I just don't like scary movies that are not scary. Granted, I think scary movies are probably difficult to make. I recently picked up the accordion, it's addictive and very fun to play! Besides history books, the most recent books I've read and really enjoyed were: "Mindset" by Carrol Dweck and "Play" by someone Brown I think...or the guy who founded the National Institute of Play in the US. Yes folks, it exists...and it's really interesting!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Wow, picking two or three moments that left me awestruck isn't an easy task. I think I'd need some time to answer this. But the easy answer would be moving to Europe, and then to Latin America. Mexico was an amazing experience...I left a part of my heart there and feel like I'm now part Mexican.
