About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enriching my life by experiencing all the world has to offer.

ABOUT ME

I've learned a lot by wandering the world, getting lost, taking risks/opportunities and keeping an open mind. I'm a mellow guy, love to booze, which is especially easy to in Tahoe. I also like to sleep. A lot. I like to talk about travels, wild and crazy stories, into photography, music and food! Weirdest thing I've ever eaten, horse sashimi appetizer in a cow intestine themed dinner in Matsuyama, Japan. Coolest thing I've ever eaten, chicken tagine that was picked and killed 15 min prior to cooking by Mohammed, my Moroccan friend in Sale.

People say I look like Harold from Harold and Kumar. I tell them to be sure tocheck out my upcoming movie, the one based in Amsterdam.

The plan right now is finding and doing everything I can do before I settle down to a solid career path. Where will it lead, is the big question because as more time passes, I'm finding more things I could do for the rest of my life. It's been almost two years since graduation and been the best time of my life.

PHILOSOPHY

-Try everything.

-Fear is only temporary, regret is forever. Still working on this one.

-Be water, my friend.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think CS is an awesome concept and really pools together all the positive energy from travelers around the world. That's why I'm offering to host

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Never couch surfed before. I've read profiles and stories and looked at pictures, but that is about it. I came real close to CS-ing in Paris but never ended up doing so because I found an apartment a day before I was being kicked out of my old one. Would love to try it though.

Interests

Being a travel bum, ski bum and a happy drunk. Things that are expensive and electronic. Philosophizing. Live Paris. Corny jokes. Anything and everything about tahoe! Yamaha s80's. General chicken. Turning red when i drink. Volleyball. Kirkwood. Kicking people's asses at tetris attack!

Music, Movies & Books

Movies, Music and books.. I'm a blockbuster kid, it is so easy renting through the mail. I don't get to the theaters much anymore. Good and cheap action movies get me off, Shoot em up, braveheart, mission impossibles, etc. Office Space, Waiting, Gattaca...

Music- currently hiphop, old school alternative, and anything that makes you want to listen to it 30 times a day and then some.

Books- not too good at this one. Maybe stuff on philosophy or good war books.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sung in a concert with Pavarotti in front of 10,000 people in the rain in Stockholm.

Teach, Learn, Share

Want to learn how to ski? I'm an ex-Ski Instructor. Want to drink? I also bartend. I also have a wide music collection. I would like to explore more of Tahoe since it is so big and so pretty.
