About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Focus on helping my fellow tourism professionals.

ABOUT ME

2 meters of a nerdy dancer, who do not have hobbies at all. He only has passions and he's totally into them. Social addict, who is learning how to listen and how to speak each day. An overactive person that needs to be on the move all the time. The inventor of the new sport: dancing on roller-skates with a yo-yo and the photo camera. A global citizen who can adjust to any environment and any circumstances. He is overclocking his mind with:
- 100 ideas per second
- planning new trips
- creating fun stuff

CouchSurfer, WebSurfer and Silver Surfer after he turns 50. Martial artist, pencil artist and smile artist looking for grand adventure.

PHILOSOPHY

Ludo ergo sum.

Credo ut intelligam
intelligo ut credam

Life is like Jazz. First, you learn standards than there's the improvisation.

What is obvious to you is unknown to others.

An organisation is a dance in a rhythm of a clock.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Travelling is too exiting activity to do it without interaction with other crazy travellers. CS is the best way to find positive people who know how to pack the backpack.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've started crashing on my own at year one of my studies in Krakow. I haven't know about CS until my friend Seishunamigo introduced me to the CS community. Now I'm participating in CS as much as possible.

Interests

Traveling - meeting with locals on the verge of the known world to hear their stories is the main reason why I am closing my laptop.

Creation - from writing, filmmaking, sound editing, photographing, drawing, till video game designing. Each day I need to create something new and fresh and share it with others.

Sport / Outdoor - roller-skating, running, trekking, swimming etc. Harmony between body and mind achieved by any activity - solo or in a group. Are you in?

Games - ludology, in particular, is the science of all kind of games (video, RPG, board, card etc.). Studying this worldwide phenomenon makes me even nerdier.

Japanese Culture - if you want to know the definition of "honour", come to Japan and start to understand them. You'll find out how amazing is their language, history, habits, giant robots, cuisine and all the rest.

Dancing - especially hip-hop has a special place in my heart, and this is the reason why I cannot stand sitting parties. If there is strong baseline with scratches and samples coming out of speakers - dancefloor is my home.

Music - listening to the same music all the time is boring as hell. This is why each week I need to get some utterly fresh album from any part of the known world.

Comic books / graphic novels - the picture is worth 1000 words and sequence of pictures is priceless.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveling alone for 6 months between Japan and New Zealand.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a professional tour guide and during summer I work with Polish people in Austria, Czech Republic, Italy etc. From time to time I'm guiding foreigners in our Polish sites. In other words, tourism is my field - organising and running awesome adventures is my thing. I can share my travel tips and tricks.

Being nerd is my second face. Passionately about video games, comics, sci-fi films and 8bit music is a never-ending topic for long discussions. This also means that I'm fluent in any IT related devices or software. If there is an issue that can help you with or improve your PC/smartphone/tablet I'll be your tech support.

What I Can Share with Hosts

All my stories, movies and photos. Don't forget that I'm always in a mood to play games (video games, board games, card games etc.)

Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Malta, Monaco, New Zealand, Singapore, Slovakia, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City State, Viet Nam
