About Me


... "nesting" after living a nomadic lifestyle for 4 years.


I come off as intense, passionate, overly enthusiastic about...anything, smiley and curious. You'll find me quite an optimistic person, a sense of humor that is all over the place and able to indulge in life's simplicities.


I like walking into the unknown having those moments that are made purely based on feeling, the present and the trust you have in yourself and in the world. After that, it's all good.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've only surfed, but I love to connect my friends from around the world with other travelers I meet.


Lovely experiences so far, I CS when ever possible!


Trekking, traveling, swimming, photography, dancing, maps, socialist realism, yoga, postcards, libraries, live music, MOVIES, horses, biking, grandma diners, fires, panel housing estates, sun, being creative, autobiographical books, people and time spent alone.

Music, Movies, and Books

Nonfiction, I love reading autobiographies and words about personal experiences and the path that makes one's life. Directors and films are synonymous for me, infatuated with Milos Forman, Krzyzstof Kieslwoski, Pedro Almodovar and Ingmar Bergman.

Teach, Learn, Share

I genuinely enjoy teaching and working with children through games and life experience... I only hope that I keep living with the soul of my inner child. I also take pleasure in sharing my knowledge of film and filmmaking. Let's tell a story together...
