About Me

Somewhat introverted airplane geek, most comfortable in a hobbyists' workshop tinkering old technology, debating international politics, or exploring historic buildings and landmarks but always up for hiking or roughing it outdoors.

I could talk at length flooding you with factual snippets on aviation technology, micronations, history or a lot of other stuff under the sun or stars. See interests list below.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Independent free-spirited travel has been front and centre of my mind for more than a decade.
I intend to live a nomadic life for at least a year. (Originally scheduled for 2020).

Memorable CS quote:

"We are all proof that no matter where we come from, what we believe, what our circumstances are, we all have the same desire to know the other, we may not accept it but we’re willing to listen. We’re open minded and humble, we swallow our pride and choose to see that individual as equal to ourselves."
(from Laolu, Orlando FL couchcrash 2019)
