About Me


My current mission trace the routes of my family history. You need to understand your past to know who you really are.


Overall, friendly, easy going, open minded and adventerous.

I truly respect learning (doesn't mean school...just, I enjoy people who like to learn).

I live in Prague where I attend Charles University and I live with my amazing girlfriend and lovable dog.


This one is always changing, as it should. My philosophy today is different from yesterday and will be different tomorrow.

But, I'll give a quote I quite enjoy.

"The whole idea of music from the begining of time is for people to be happy" - Robert Plant

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Alright folks, here's the deal. Both my girlfriend and I are very laid back, easy going people. However, it is always very clear based on your couch surfing requests, whether you have actually read my profile or not.

Those who have not read my profile, and have clearly just done a copy and paste job will not get a response. Those you have read the profile and taken the time to write a personal request, will be welcomed into our home and we'll have a great time.


I have surfed on couches in Slovakia, Germany, and Vancouver. All experiences were so different but all positive.


I love music.
Neil Young, Pearl Jam, Waillin Jennys, Blind Melon, CSNY, Elliot Smith, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Guess Who, Guns n Roses, Alice in Chains, Jonie Mitchell, Tom Waits, Mumford and Sons (my dog is actually named Mumford)

Music, Movies, and Books

Update: Just finish reading "The Book Thief" (March, 2014)

So many to list.

But, Today, December 3, 2012, i'm listening to a lot of Elliot Smith and reading Moby Dick by Herman Melville

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Update as of July, 2013: Moving to Prague for the love of my life.

There are so many to choose from.

Going to visit Auschwitz was definitely a very powerful and moving experience. I'm not sure I can quite put into words the experience, but suffice it to say it made a big impact.

A couple weeks after I saw an amazing Symphony is Vienna which was also a very moving experience. Probably more moving in light of visiting Auschwitz.

Countries I’ve Visited
