About Me

"Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind". -Henry James

I'm very relaxed, easy going and honest. I'm a journalist working as a web editor for a travel magazine.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think Couchsurfing is a fantastic platform that gives us the opportunity to re-learn to trust each other, no matter how different our cultures or lifestyles could be.


I'm interested in art, politics, history, cultural heritage, architecture, music and cinema.
