About Me


Basically to Live and Learn


most people think i'm gay or say i'm softly spoken. i'm not gay.. perhaps softly spoken, But i do know i don't really like About Me sections.

I draw, record/play music, eat and play football (aka Soccer)


If you're interested




I figured i'd just insert some quotes i like:

"it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world."

"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."

"Le temps detruit tout"

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery.

We also like to have a good time (this doesn't particularly mean drugs and parties)


-Football (Soccer)
-Playing music and singing
