About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make my own good time

ABOUT ME

I am easy-going, curious and a bit goofy at times. I love cracking people up, exchanging interesting stories and meeting new people.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started as a surfer in Europe where the people I met through CouchSurfing made up the most magical part of the trip. My roommates and I hope to host more often. We learn so much from our surfers and even about our own country.

Interests

A tour of any place or a good conversation always makes my day. Apart from that, I am passionate about learning languages, leather crafting, adult ballet to stretch my wolverine skeleton, reading, traveling, watching artistic/rhythmic gymnastics in awe and listening to music (powers the chore robot in me).

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Imogen Heap, Patrick Wolf, Shiina Ringo, Placebo, Rachael Yamagata, Mogwai, Mew, Monkey Majik, Nightwish, Slut, Sigur Ros, Bjork, The Decemberists, Eels, Thom Yorke

Books: mostly fantasy and psychology The Neverending Story, Freakonomics, A Wizard's Dozen, Howl's Moving Castle, The Education of Little Tree, The Hobbit

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Worked and hitchhiked in Yellowstone National Park in summer 2007 where I met some endearing friends. Surfed an amazing trip in Hungary and Czech Republic in Sep. and Oct. 2008.

Teach, Learn, Share

It would be fantastic if you could teach me how to play guitar, rollerblade, scuba dive, paint, carve stamps, take great photos or just share your thoughts about your culture and the city you live.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can make a couple of dishes like Thai Green Curry and Pho Bo Beef or play a simple tune on my ukulele.

Countries I've Visited

Australia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, United States

Countries I've Lived In
