About Me


To leave some kind of footprint behind me.


I'm a nice guy who's easy to talk to. I'm also a great listener. Some keywords to describe myself as a person are laidback, interesting, philosophical, fun and nice. I'm always open to new experiences. Almost always in a good mood.

Sometimes, when I'm alone and everything is quiet, I like to think deep thoughts. Like, what is the meaning of life? Or, are we alone in the universe? Or, as Animal Collective so bluntly put it "am I really all the things that are outside of me?"

I enjoy the small things in life. Like hearing a quiet rain tap on the windows at night when trying to sleep. Or just talking endlessly with a good friend on a summer's eve. Or why just not relax with some good music and a cup of coffee?

But, understand that I also enjoy experiencing the opposite end of the adrenaline spectrum. Like biking till' your butt hurts or running till' you're out of breath, or dancing the night away in a club with volume levels approaching the dangerous.

Simply put, there are many sides to my personality.


Our time on this blue marble should be spent doing things that make you feel alive. See the world and meet people from every corner of it, for example (if a marble has corners, that is).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Went to New York all by myself in August 2012. Spent time with three very nice Americans. It was my best traveling experience by far!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Last year I had my first couch surfing-experience when I traveled to New York City and spent time with some wonderful people.

Also, a few years prior, I visited Egypt and saw both the tourist side (beaches, hotels, all-you-can-eat buffets) and the cultural side (countryside, the Karnak temple, Luxor). It was an amazing experience.
