About Me


Parade peeing, castle storming, tikun olam etc.


Oh this guy? He's just a little crazy. The good kinda crazy of course.


I'm into saving the world and that mission begins on my rooftop with red wine.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was on a date once and the girl told me about this site. I thought it was an amazing idea so here I am. I love to meet new people from all backgrounds and cultures. I travel vicariously through every traveling person. I love to show people around and I love to learn new languages.


My couchsurfing or hosting experiences have and keep on being amazing. I met real cool, fun and interesting people and it gives me a chance to practice foreign languages. I am a spontaneous host. I usually host those who are last minute searchers and I save them from going to expensive hotels, hostels, sleeping in the subway or from being bitten by sharks, tigers or bed bugs. I don't like to plan to much in advance. Still, send me a request anyway even if you're 3 months out. I would love to hear from you and perhaps host you one day.

My first guest on here was from California. He sent me the request at 1:09pm on a sunny Friday afternoon. I was to leave Brooklyn for the weekend by 2 pm. Thirty minutes later he had the keys to my apartment and was situated for the weekend.


My interests are summed up in one word, #NEWYORKCITY. This city has soooo much to offer I am living it with all my energy. I cycle, skate, go to shit shows, beaches, rooftop parties, art shows, NY Public library, people watching, prospect/central and all parks and what not.

Music, Movies, and Books

I will be back with the list. Can we put a bookmark in this one, please?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I terminated my run for the presidency of the United States for now, therefore, I have no need or obligation to advertise the amazing things I have done in my life.


Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching starts with being a better person yourself. Life is a learning expiriance. Share positive energy.
