About Me

I am well-rounded, clean, polite, calm, curious, warm and energetic...recipe for awesomeness haha sometimes naive :-P I am not loud and I am not tall (1.65m) either..but I can jump real high:-P I live in Chicago and I travel to cities around the world for work. Sometimes I get to spend a few extra days in the city that I am visiting...sometimes not. I love nature, I love art, I love food, and I love to drink. I am always fascinated to learn how other people on this planet are living their life. I also have plenty of funny stories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I travel to cities all over the world for business and I would like to meet cools locals and share memorable experiences, get introduced to their world and introduce them to mine... maybe we think differently, but our hearts beat the same way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think it is amazing enough that you are reading my profile, a random soul! But I also ran 5km in 19minutes...I think that's kinda fast and amazing :-P

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to read and I have traveled quite a bit, makes me someone fun to talk to.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My soul haha well only a tiny piece of it...you will need a microscope to see it :-P Well as with any two individuals coming from two different corners of the world, it is always a great opportunity to challenge our current beliefs and understanding of the world...so in a sense I bring you closer to the truth, and the truth will set you free, just ask John haha
