Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Surfing and hosting simultaneously.
I stayed with some folks in Auckland in 2011, twas a fantastic experience. They were lovely, showed me around, and I cooked something... I hope it was good.
My profession is my passion, so besides doing what I love I enjoy playing whatever instrument I can get my hands on, sketching, analyzing films, reading, and talking about whatever with whoever. There's always stories to be told and stories to make.
Music, Movies, and Books
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
At one point while I was in India, my parents, their students and I were sitting at a train station in Varanasi waiting for a train to Kolkata. I started playing guitar, my dad started on the harmonica and my mom started singing, "The Varanasi Train Station Blues." A massive crowd of people surrounded us, stunned and amazed. I doubt they had ever heard The Blues before.
I also played soccer with Robert Downey Jr. in Sting's kitchen once.

Next time you're with a friend, both take out your cell phones and call each other. Put your phones on speaker and then face to phones to one another. Talk, sing, whistle into them, you'll hear robots making love.
