About Me

A free and open person. I'm ready to accept, to understand and I'm pretty sure that things that happen and are going to happen, human behavior have some reasons and their background, which causes the present. And of course meetings are not accidental. And meeting with CS members too...

Discover the world, learn and experience.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on Couchsurfing since 2010. Several times I hosted some guests, several times I was hosted. I'm not really active here. Though I thank couchsurfing for the opportunity to easy get in touch with locals. I use CS from time to time when I move to a new places or when I travel.

Sorry, for now I don't host anybody... Though I'm happy to meet and chat from time to time. People and human relations are among my big interests :) Unfortunately as I'm pretty active, I don't have much free time.


I moved to Vienna in 2012. That was a... step. And it changed me, my life, gave new opportunities.

I'm practicing acting since 2013, was a member of a couple of theater studios in Vienna, attended different master classes and workshops. I sing: rather classical, I'm practicing singing since 2014. Gave several concerts. Singing and acting are leisure activity which make me more sensitive, open, free, brought sense and creation.

Music: different, pretty everything but melodic is more favorite

Books: as well thoughtful, e.g.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

People will never stop to amaze me

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm teaching math and informatics. But I don't think these are appropriate here

Yes, experience, time are the things to share

What I Can Share with Hosts

That could be a walk, a drink (though non alcoholic) a museum/performance

And yes, time, the most precious resource
