About Me


Create as many stories as possible.


I will do anything for a good story.
I live with few regrets and few inhibitions.
I love to laugh and make others laugh.
I always tell the truth, even if it hurts, and I expect the same.
I always keep my promises.
I enjoy the peace and quiet when I'm alone but I chat to whoever I can find if there are people around.
I dance if there is music, including in the subway.
I love being weird because weird is what I am.
I try to express myself with everything I do and everything I create.
I learn as much as possible about everything, from astro physics to Buddhism.
I am more than a list ;)


When I die I want my funeral to be a big ass party with a 8 piece band and dancing and buffet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used organize the weekly NYC CS meetups and moderate the NYC CS board. Now I just try to show people a great time no matter where I am.


I was given a letter and recorded a video by my host's girlfriend's family friend during my host's girlfriend's nephew's baptism party to deliver to her old baby sitter who she hasn't seen in 30 years. This is why I love couch surfing.
