About Me

Hi, I'm Louis! Currently living in Philadelphia with 2 friends (also on CS). We are open to hosting travelers or just meeting new people. Please request in advance!

*NOTE: Due to the amount of requests, please consider the nature of your visit and if it is CS appropriate before contacting me - Maybe you are visiting Philly as part of your travels - or maybe you should just airbnb a room near the conference center. Thanks!)

My activities include teasing puppies, living a triple life, carefuly mispelling werds, petty crimes of passion, not asking questions, Dada, anti-Dada, anti-anti-Dada, forgetting what I read, searching for Welden Kees, guitar solos in D minor, doing it wrong the first time, watching people watching people, Montana 94s, lucid dreaming and the occasional misusing of public toilets if the mood should strike.


Anything Eastern European.
