About Me

I'm an urban planning student, I have weird geeky kind of fascination with maps, transportation networks, community planning, urban design, etc
I'm a music lover and I play classical piano... once in a blue moon. I stopped taking classes a few years ago, though I'm a decent sight reader!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think about how casually people put up a friend or an acquaintance on their couch, but when they find themselves in a different city, with millions of couches, they still pay big money to sleep in boring generic hotel rooms!
I believe in sharing and hospitality, paying it forward, using our physical resources to the maximum of their potential, and discovering and sharing in other people's ways of life 🌈
I'm also just a nomad at heart, I just like changes often and new people, living and loving and seeing everything there is to see.


I enjoy fantasy and sci-fi novels, documentaries about *literally* anything if they are well made, a bit more picky when it comes to movies. Favorable bias towards anything with queer narrative ;)
I'm getting into anime as well and learning a bit of Japanese language along the way!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm into skills and knowledge sharing. I enjoy sharing my Vegan cooking with others, I make good coffee drinks, I can also help you find your way around and even give a bike tour if time permits.
