About Me

I'm pretty easy-going, transparent and caring about people and things. I smile a lot when I'm around people because I enjoy being around people (even though I'm an introvert). You will most likely enjoy getting to know me, and I will enjoy getting to know you.


People, much like the Universe, give you what you expect of them, so always expect the best of everyone.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've found that couchsurfing is a great way to meet people that I enjoy hanging out with from all over the world. I've hosted, couchsurfed, met up with people to show them around or be showed around, I've gone to CS events in cities where I've lived and cities where I've traveled... It's just perfect for so many things - getting to know a place more intimately, making friends when you've moved to a new place, community building, networking... CS is self-exclusive for people who are made of Awesome.

Music, Movies & Books

I'm not really big on having favorites. I like music that is sincere, books about real human feelings, and movies that make me think or feel things I haven't thought or felt before.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Rode my bike down California coast with a bunch of really amazing people, with very little planning and barely any money, through dumpster diving, manifestation and smiles.

Teach, Learn, Share

Right now, I really want to focus on learning bicycle maintenance and community bike shop operation, permaculture, and other sustainable living skills.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Vegan or vegetarian cooking (though I'm not exclusively vegetarian), smiles, positive outlook, adventures, stories, and maybe some random skills?.. Just the same as anyone else on here, really - my company and love for adventure.

Countries I've Visited

Bulgaria, Canada, France, Russian Federation, United States

Countries I've Lived In
