About Me

CURRENT MISSION

The value of something isn't engraved on it's surface (I know it's not a goal or mission, but I like it better than writing what I want)

ABOUT ME

I am a passion driven person. There are a big number of things I am passionate about. Stories is probably number one. Weather it's a written story, or a video, or a word of a mouth...it doesn't matter. Everyone and every little thing has a story. My favorite kind of stories are in stills.

Other than that... I love to learn and to do new things constantly. Life for me is about knowledge and experience.
I love traveling and meeting new people, it's just so awesome to be able to meet someone from another side of the world, who live in completely different ways and find things in common with the and learn about them...and of course have fun ;)

PHILOSOPHY

I believe we're all guests in this world, cause the Earth will still be here when we're all gone. So I'd like to absorb as much knowledge experience as I can and help others on the way.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I enjoy hosting guests from far away (but then again everything outside Vancouver feels like far away) and help them out. To share and to learn from each other and have fun

Interests

It'd be a long list if I mentioned everything... but it's almost anything you can think of hehe, you name it and I'll be interested.
Sports (any really) and outdoors, music (used to play piano, saxophone and bass, and classical guitar), films/entertainment, art/reading/writing/drawing, history/culture... the list goes on

Music, Movies & Books

Ah...too many things to list.
Books: Jules Verne, H.G Wells, H. Rider Haggard....sci-fi, fantasy, classics mostly. I like poetry, Russian literature.

Music is Experimental Jazz, Bluesy songs, Progressive metal, I'd listen to anything that has musical instruments.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Depends what you consider amazing. I enjoy little things and just wrestling with a dog is amazing to me. On a large scale I'd have to say being on an African safari in Kenya looking at a blue sky over the snowy Mt. Kilimanjaro with elephants and giraffes and lions running around in the tall grasses. Or maybe driving in the clouds through the Rockies.

Teach, Learn, Share

Umm...I can teach photography and some film making stuff.
I'm willing to share any knowledge and experience I have.

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Kenya, Netherlands, Norway, Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United States
