Join Couchsurfing to see Michael’s full profile. It’s free!
Would love to introduce myself.
Me llamo Michael.
I have a profound love for art, music, culture and learning. In my past travels I came across a fellow Parisian that whimsically, and unbeknownst to him, stated what would become a mantra I hold so dear ; "Art is permanence in a temporary life". I truly enjoy digesting the passage of our previous generations' feelings, techniques and climate via various mediums whether song, dance, film, painting, sculpture.
Another mantra I hold very close to the breast is by a man we all know, Albert Einstein, and states "Creativity is intelligence having fun". That means so much to me as it marries both sides of the brain for an ultimate output that is more far reaching that one side alone.
Things I value and hold dear are a sense of humor, solidarity, and empathy. Those three traits can really check the box across various personalities and, in my opinion, really drive communities towards a better more progressive world.
If were to describe myself I would say I am a bit of a goofball who loves witty dialogue. Lets talk about anything and everything! I truly believe in forgiveness and try to be a person that carries both love and forgiveness present as much as I can humanely mustard. I am also very easy going, respectful and open to new experiences.
