About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Break into your house and steal from your fridge.

ABOUT ME

I'm David, I'm closed-minded, I hate travelling and Into the Wild is my least favourite movie. That's right.Seriously, it´s hard to describe myself, but don´t ask me, here´s what my parents think: "David came home from preschool talking about 'semi-circles'. I think he's clever" (my mum´s diary, March 23, 1993)"you are a bit of a wanker" (personal correspondence with mum, June 20 2013)"I should do now what I should have done the day you were born - drown you" (dad, June 23, 2012) Thanks, parents!

PHILOSOPHY

Variable.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm not really in a good position to host people normally, but I do my best to participate in other ways, coming to meetings and stuff, and just generally gracing the CS world with my presence.
