About Me

I enjoy traveling on low budget - hitchhiking, sleeping anywhere in nature on the way. I live on a sailboat as it is a way to be in nature and yet save on rent. One thing that I really have passion is breaking concepts and finding ways to do things differently.

My dream is to fix my sailboat and sail away once I'm done with my PhD.

I'm somewhat struggling with finding what I should do after I graduate. My gift is in mathematics, but my passion is in more adventurous way of life.

I'm into Tibetan Buddhism, I like both meditation and the philosophy. I have no doubts about low of karma.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CouchSurfing is a good way to meet idealists, although it is not what it used to be.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived in the NYC parks, beaches and rooftops for three month while studying my PhD.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn Spanish and sailing.

I can show you some Tibetan meditations.

I will be exited to discuss any science (maybe even non-science like economics).
