About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I hope to have cool people over and share travelling experiences. I'd also like to make more friends who live in the Bay Area and are in the couchsurfing community.

ABOUT ME

I'm a nerdy, artsy, leftist oriented twenty something looking to meet more friends in the area. I've met some people I really like that are on couchsurfing here, so I decided to become more active again and would love to make more friends through the site/ couchsurfing events.

PHILOSOPHY

"Do not fear mistakes. There are none."
-Miles Davis

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My roommate Elad and I love hosting people at our apartment in Tel Aviv. I also hope to do more couchsuring in the near future!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I loved using couchsurfing to travel in Berlin and Prague. I really had a blast meeting people from Couchsurfing and getting a more authentic sense of those places through couchsurfing rather than just staying at a hostel with other tourists.
