Shrouded territory that will unveil in the next few months
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 Yafo, studied some 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...

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.
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, woohoo), nowadays a bit drifted in the work&study busy life.
Chess, Ping Pong, dancing, cooking, taking funny pictures, Massage, Writing; and number one interest (even above music) = Movies
