About Me


travel a lot and make friends everywhere


I like to make friends all over the place and experiment new things and new cultures.
I'm a bit shy but once I start knowing a person I start talking more :P
One of my passions is architecture for development and I co-founded which focus on social projects.
I believe that the world should be based on kindness and Couchsurfing is a wonderful platform for that.


"A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles."
