About Me

PLEASE before sending me a couch request, watch this short video: then read my profile and tell me what can we share. Remember, CS is not only a "free accommodation" source.
Geographically, I am European-American but prefer to consider myself a World-Ninja-Citizen.
I traveled a lot but hey, there's still so much to discover and many ways to travel, especially through music and people.
I worked in TV/Radio Production and as a freelance Documentary Photographer. Nowadays pay the bills as a Project Manager for a Software Company but still very passionate about photography, music, and Photojournalism.
If you play Beach Volleyball, Tennis, or if you are planning a creative project, here you may have a friend!.
Finally ...I cook, oui sir!, so if you are lucky and I feel inspired, you may taste one of my eclectic delicatessens :-)
Happy to hang out, meet up in London or anywhere else and expand my social circle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCH SURFING has changed a lot and sadly my approach to the once "non-profit project" has changed.
I crossed many people's lives, have got great experiences, made some friends and discovered the world in a different way so I'm really thankful for this project.
That said I still believe in the platform but I'll definitively check if you have "hosted" before and if you have good references, if not, at least you should have participated helping travellers in different ways and your profile must be filled properly (especially 'My Home' section) so don't be lazy, make an effort and tell me... why should I host you :-)


First experience. September of 2008 in Estonia (Tallinn) After that there have been so many good experiences in different countries hosting and being hosted, so far a GREAT experience!

Teach, Learn, Share

I travelled a lot and lived in different places, and yes, you learn a lot and probably I can SHARE some experiences. As long as we consider SHARING a gift we could learn from every single person we face ... we need to keep trusting in the human being.
