About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get the most out of life with the least amount of effort possible.

ABOUT ME

Well, as it is for most people, I find it difficult to fill these things out.

I suppose I am a laid back guy who enjoys a cozy night inside as well as a crazy party that lasts till the wee hours of the morning. I'm willing to try new things (within reason ;).

I like to judge people based on their heart. If your heart is in the right place, then usually you can be trusted, and you are a person who makes the world a better place just a little bit at a time.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in the path to least resistance. Life is not about slaving away in a cubicle for 40 hours a week. It's about enjoying the world around you, while also contributing to it.

When I need money, I work. When I need to go have fun, I have it. When I need to sit back and meditate, I do that. When a friend is in need, I do what I can to help.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am relatively new to this. I have been to several CS parties before I joined the site. I love the cultural exchange. The best is when there is a language barrier. I love the challenge of communicating through broken words and hand gestures.

I am a born and raised New Yorker, and I love to show my city to people who have never been. Nobody from CS has taken me up on the offer yet, but I wait for the day that someone does.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My CS experiences are limited to the parties I have attended, and the surfers I have met who were surfing at my friend's places.

I can remember one instance where I went to a party with my friend and her surfer. By the end of the night me and him were buddy buddy, on a hunt for more beer! what fun.

Interests

Not in any particular order:

Computers, Beer, Whiskey, Pot, Video Games, Paintball, Firearms (in the safest of conditions of course!), Bar hoping, Parties, Movies, FOOD!, Fine dining, Greasy spoons, TV, Travel, Politics

Music, Movies & Books

oh lots and lots

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Watched the sun rise over the horizon of the Atlantic, coming down off of LSD. It was beautiful on many levels.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to know how to speak Mandarin fluently.

I can teach you the magic behind the Fibonacci sequence, and also how to program computers.

I can share my knowledge of my hometown's fun little secrets.
