About Me


building collective to make movies

"its impossible in a lifetime to know who you are"

not the common sense of perceiving reality, as sharing the belief that such things dont exist. like sleeping out at dark sky.
inspiration through life and nature. interested in exploring different status of mind.
observing things that passing by. with a respect at the irrational way of thinking.
trying to awake creativity situations, anytime, anywhere..

"there is no point of seeing many different places with the same point of view, but seeing the same place while changing your points of view."
(from a friend)

"What we see is not made up of what we are seeing but rather from what we are."
from Pessoa

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

as a mater of fact trying to avoid it, while
looking for the old community and tell them to migrate here:

>this is a more democratic site (almost direct),

according to my experience of cs the last 7 years, i notice that after turning into a for profit corp , many new profiles have been blossomed, but these people are not really into the idea of it, so as a result ones who try to use cs for its original purpose come across "not active on hosting" profiles, and it gets annoying sending really a lot requests and receiving no answer. this makes the site not functionable for its idea.


photography, direction, animation, drawing, painting, traditional drums.
the last years i m interested in plants, have been involved with organic and natural farming.
physical theater entered my life out of a sudden lately, cant looking forward to jump back there again.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

almost the round of turkey by hh.
found a beach to sleep where there was not any light or other sign of human existance around.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach some basic stuff about juggling.
how to animate.
how to control your dream (and if there is any point in it).
how to push your mind through creative - irrational paths.
share the philosophy of natural farming, and give you a kick into it.

i m going to host anyone related to kabuki , or butoh, as i want to be introduced in these movements.
