About Me

I used to be active here, but my priorities have changed. I tire of all these different online platforms and of social media in general. I am also quite busy with personal projects and friends.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host(-ed), I surf(-ed). Now I run interest-based clubs and groups. Look for the "Language Exchange Club Tbilisi" and "Hikers of Georgia" on Facebook.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Starting a new life from scratch in a different country... several times. Leaving the religion of my upbringing. Hiking 4200 km from the Mexican border to Canada in 131 days through the mountains. Starting popular interest groups. Writing books in two different languages. Designing my own apartment. Learning to love better. Not giving up...
