Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I started by offering my floor in my University dorm to a colleague that just moved to the UK from NZ. I then surfed on a couch in Berkeley when I first arrived in the US...and since my home has been open to travelers from all over the world

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started by offering my floor in my University residence room to a colleague that just moved to the UK from NZ...I enjoyed so much listening to his CS stories and hoped to have my own stories to tell in the future. I then surfed on a couch in Berkeley when I first arrived to the US...and since my home has been open to travelers from all over the world

Interests

music, dance, anthropology, evolution, management, Agile

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Lived in Fangito, Habana, Cuba with not a single cent (unfortunate airport situation) and no knowledge of Spanish (which I quickly picked up due to necessity) for 5 weeks with the locals. I became so ill and tired but not for a second did I feel lonely or unhappy...I was very entertained and well taken care of.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a lot of practical skills concerning immigration in the EU and USA, so if you need advice don't hesitate to reach out.
I also speak many languages, dance salsa, work for a couple of non-profits (UN Related and disability community related)...so plenty of knowledge to share

Countries I've Visited

Cuba, France, Germany, Mozambique, Spain

Countries I've Lived In

Germany, Macedonia, Portugal, United Kingdom, United States
