About Me

CURRENT MISSION

If you're going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you're going to be locked up.” ― Hunter S. Thompson

ABOUT ME

I'm always keen to explore new ground.
I try travel as much as possible.
It's one of the few addictions that you can actually be proud of and not feel bad about..

I like the randomness of people that I meet along the way. Personally I think life is about forming positive connections with others and sharing our personal experiences.

PHILOSOPHY

'How much do you know about yourself if you haven't travelled?'

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies & Books

Movies :Non mainstream films that usually have great character studies - where the main protagonist is a broken and a conflicted individual..

Fight Club
Requiem for a Dream
The Wrestler
American History X
Full Metal Jacket

Also like the good old urban crime dramas - Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Goodfellas etc

Music: EDM (Electronic Dance Music). Mostly underground progressive house stuff - not that David Guetta/Skillrex bullshit. Also some underground hip hop like DJ Premier, Wu Tang and stuff from golden era

Books: Mostly non fiction currently reading Max Weber - 'The Protestant Work Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism'

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Fired an AK 47 assualt rifle in the CuChi Tunnel of Saigon, Vietnam. A very masculine and liberating experience I must say.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach - whatever that may help you to achieve your goals

Learn - happy to learn from the best
