About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find out who designed the weird toilets of Holland.

ABOUT ME

Born. Crouzon syndrome. Surgeries. Happy childhood. Depressed teenage-hood. Compulsory military service. Broke free. Work (Help-desk). University. Traveling Africa. Living in Cape Town. Then Amsterdam. Now Tel Aviv, studying film-making. I wish I knew the rest but I lost the ability to predict the future when I was about 9 years old. Well, at least I can still be invisible and fly...

PHILOSOPHY

"Wonder rather than doubt is the root of all knowledge." -Abraham Joshua Heschel

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to host and to be hosted. CS events as a great way to open up and meeting people, thus get a wider view of the human spectrum and have a good time while at it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted in Amsterdam, Cape Town and a couple of times in Israel; surfed in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa & The Netherlands. Once in a while I used to participate in a CS event (inc. organizing a LASER TAG game in Amsterdam), nowadays a bit drifted in the work&study busy life.
