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 yesterday (more like a year ago now) 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 love to show people around and I love to learn new languages.

I realize that this in an uphill battle. I am a total newbie, I don't have any friends on this site or anyone vouching for me. I am very patient and I am sure I will get through this obstacle.


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 simple 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 two 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 watch on the subway, prospect/central and all parks and what not.

Music, Movies & Books

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