About Me


To comfort others with the same comfort that Christ comforted me with, to serve my family and heal the sick.


Jestem studentem medycyny w USA i
BedE pracowaL‚ trochE™ do szpitalu w miescie Wellington. Już pracowałem w klinice kardiologii w szpitalu Wojskowym. ChciaLbym żeby dowiedziaL się™ wiE™cej o polkiej kulturze i mowiL tylko po polsku.
BedE™ zadowolony zaprzyjaZniC‡ ludzi.
ChciaL‚bym w przyszLoS›ci pracowaL jako lekarz chorOb wewnAtrznych w Europie. BedE™ zadowolony jeZ›li dowiem siE™ czego› wiEcej o europejskiej opiece zdrowotnej.

I practice medicine at Wellington Regional Medical Center after graduating medical school at CCOM. In Palm Beach, I hope to continue serving underserved Latino and Haitian communities. I love learning Danish, Polish. French, Spanish and Haitian Creole.
Me llamo Michael y mientras era Paramedico soy medico de medicina. Ahora estoy mejorando mi espaNol al Instituto Cervantes y espero a asistir el examen DELE C2. Suelo enseNar I­ngles a hispanohablantes y aprender espaNol por mi turno igualmente. Me gusta leer literatura latina (especialmente Eduardo Galeano, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mario Vargas Llosa)y interpreto por una clinica en la ciudad de Chicago. TodavIa, me parece que en nuestra Epoca solemos sacar de quicio la valor de los acontecimientos que estAn pasando en espaNa. Me encargo de realizar una nueva perspectiva sobre "los indignados" y mando al cuerno mi patrimonia norteamericana.
Yo querrI­a platicar sobre politica, derechos humanos, arte y muchas mAs cosas. Me fascina con Che Guevara, la revoluciOn mexicana, theologIa de la liberaciOn (Gustavo Gutierrez), Eduardo Galeano, la lucha de la pobreza y El grupo Florida y los artistas quien fueron al dentro este grupo.
Je m'appelle Michael et je suis internist de mEdecine. L'annEe derniEre Etait dificil parce que je me suis bossE poru matriser le FranCais et je continue toujours d'en practiquer. Pourquoi?- on me interroge- je suis reste en France (A Poitier, A Paris...), j'ai profitE de la nuit blanche A MontrEal (grAce a deux J'ai Amies et une Jasmine), je suis tombE amoureux de Le Monde Politique et le Canard EnchaInE, j'ai dEcouvert une peu de la philosophie franCaise (particuliErement l'existentialisme du Camus) et, bien sUr, la musique franCaise (Louis Attack, Groovy Aardvark, Mickey 3D,...). Je voudrais me dEmenager A un pays francophone. Mais, je crainds que je ne manque une concordance professionelle comme mEdecin (je m'ennuie des Etats-Unis et tout le monde de le genre anti-intellectuelisme ). J'Etais bEnEvolE en HaIti, J'ai l'intention de faire des vacances en Martinique cette hiver et je voudrais rEtourner en France aprEs j'ai rEussi l'examen DALF C2 . Dans ce sEjour je compts de profiter des toutes les spectacles dont j'ai ratE pendant mes derniEres vacances, ceux de nos (paticipation avec el GuEdelon, et Franco Follies 2012).
M rele Michael epi m soti Ozetazini. M se Paramedik epi map kOmanse etidye pou fE lamedsin andedan lekEl medsin, sa ka rele InivesitE Midwestern, nan etat-la, Illinois. Se mwen menm ki yon katriyA m ane. Anvan vwayage mwen, m pa te konn pAsAn Ayisien-yo, mais poukisa m te ale nan Ayiti, m ka kenbe kontak ak twaka zamni-mwen-yo. Gras a Dye, m te sevi ak nan ville-la LeyogAn, sa ke m ka te fE tretman epi ede anpil Ayisien blesi-yo.
Pandan m tap ede nan klinik-la, m te wA twA Ofelen malad-yo et beaucoup fi-yo ki manje mizE y pa jwenn dlo pwop, okenn manje oubien, lespwa menm. M renmen tout moun Ayisien-yo et m espri tounen tousuit. Osnon m prale travay nan yon klinik Ayisien apre m rive nan Chicago.
"Ti poul pa mande plim; le sEl mande lavi"
Jeg hedder Michael et jeg er laeg i Chicago. Jeg er ikke gift. Naar, har jeg nok tid, jeg plejer at laere dansk, fransk, spansk eller hvem der end er regeringschef i danemark, og hvilket parti hun eller han end kommer fra. Nej, jeg driller dig lidt om den sidste del. Hvis er du dansker og vil gerne rejse i Amerika, du er altrid inviteres at bo hos os. Saa kan vi hjaelpe dig til at kende USA samt Florida.


I feel that there is a considerable amount of inequality in this world and that my life goal is to share the love of Jesus with those who need help the most. I feel that there are many paths to help the cause of Christ but medicine is the path meant for me. Right now I want to learn how to help those who need it by learning their lives.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I'm trying to find people in Europe, Africa, Central and South America to meet and exchange ideas. I have a super comfortable couch available in my apartment!


Last year I did a Winter Bath in Copenhague, where my friend and I spent our Christmas night singing carols with a Brazilian and a homeless man in Christiania.

I had a couch-surfing spree in QuEbec one springbreak for the snow gathering and the Nuit Blanche. There I met some really awesome QuEbecois and discovered how amazing Canada is.
On a trip, I surfed in Poitiers, France, which was arguably the best surf experience ever!! I had a home-cooked meal with Eau-de-vie and Pastis and CrEpes A la Britagne(thanks Marielle). The next day Pierre took us to Futuroscope and a free Mickey 3D concert.
I surfed with my first CS buddies in Atenas, CR. It was amazing and totally changed my life. Later I would surf in San Jose, but I got too sick and had to fly home earlier than I planned.

I have surfed in Albany and Chicago for medical school interviews and really enjoyed getting to know the cities with help from surfers!

My best experience was couch surfing in Poitiers, France with two MDs. They were very accomodating and I had a blast.
