Living my dream!
I am a professional fire-dancer and dance teacher.
Right now I am living my dream: traveling the world as a nomad artist, performing and teaching workshops everywhere I go.
I should mention that I am vegetarian, not by choice but because my body does not process meat. But I love to cook anything and everything, and have been collecting recipes during my travels.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Right now I am a nomad, without a place of my own. But I love to surf other people's couches and as soon as I will settle down and I get a couch, I would love someone to surf it. :)
end of January 2009 - I surfed 4 couches in Hong Kong - Nir Nagid's couch on Cheung Chau, Vincent Chu's, Michael Dorsher's and Francesco Marini's couches in Kowloon
spring 2009 - I surfed 3 couches in India - Anirban's in Kolkata, Mehul Shangvi's and Shaddar's in Mumbai
summer of 2012 - two friends and I surfed three couches in Italy on our way for a juggling festival on Stromboli - Yassine´s in Rome, Antonio´s in Naples and on our way back Valentina´s in Rome again
Febuary 2013 - I surfed Didier's couch in Hong Kong Island, than Twisters couch in Cebu and Gerrys couch in Cabatuan (Philippines), and than Ernestos couch in Macau

Firedancing (fans, orb, staff and double staves, poi, swinging torches and whatever else object I can spin or manipulate...);
new circus skills;
jumping trough cultures and languages;
learning and trying new things and concepts;
good books, good films, good music;
cooking and collecting recipes;
getting lost in thoughts or just anywhere;
watching sunset or sunrise;
walking around with ears full of music;
occasionally to dabble in modelling;
watching and helping people discover;
trying and failing, but than trying again;
smiling to people in subways;
Music, Movies, and Books
Now THAT would take a LONG TIME to tell. :D
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Every day is amazing!
Amongst other incredible experiences, I loved firedancing in the rain,
teaching kids different forms of theatre in summer camps and watching them open themselves and grow in that time,
swimming in the sea near Hong Kong in January and than drying on a huge rock while reading Milton's Paradise Lost,
searching abandoned houses,
backpacking all over the world,
exploring the places in Oxford that inspired Lewis Carrol,
sleeping under the stars,
walking on hot coals as a kid and than again on a living volcano...
Teach, Learn, Share
From the top of my head, I can teach you some basics (or not so basics) of firedancing or cooking.
I can share my love of arts with you, and some thoughts, and all the experiences I have made.
And I would love to learn anything and everything!
