About Me

CURRENT MISSION

LIVE LIFE!!

ABOUT ME

I´m Shayne. I'm half Spanish and half US citizen, and feel like I uphold the best of both sides. Right now, I´m getting to know who I am. I have been on the move since I was 16, trying to find a place to call home. I have made my way through a few cities and can be proud to say I have made a life in each one. I'm not so sure what my plans are for the future, but after being on the move for 6 years, its time to settle down and well... Vienna here I am. I sing for a hardcore band, and love it. Music means so much to me, the way it makes me feel and move, the message in the lyrics, and so much more that I can't put into words. Every day I wake up and feel so lucky and privileged to live this life and sometimes I can't believe it. I live by the tattoo on my knuckles, LIVE LIFE!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I really like to help people out. Not to feel better about myself but to show people shouldn't lose hope in the human race. We all have our good and bad sides, but this is my good side! You know the golden rule? "Treat people how you would like to be treated". Well, I know that when I visit a new city, I want to see the place from a locals point of view and not the typical tourist bullshit that's thrown in your face. If I can help anyone out in that way, then I know karma will return the favor. I also really enjoy meeting new people from all over. I can tell and listen to stories til the sun comes up, I really enjoy new, fresh company.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

surfed once in San Diego CAhosted many in Barcelona .

Interests

Well my main interest is anything that has to do with body modification. I've been interested in any sort of it since about 5 years ago. I thinks it's really fascinating, all aspects of it. The different cultures that explore modification, personal experiences, mind alteration, etc. I also am very passionate towards snowboarding. When I was in the second grade I bought my own motorcycle with money I had saved up ($50) and my dad and I rebuilt it from the ground up. That intruduced me into my love for enduro riding and also motor mechanics. Music and anything related. Traveling of course. Human behavior. A sustainable earth. I could go on and on about other things but this gives the gist of me.

Music, Movies & Books

Films... we need to chat about in person!

As far as music goes, I honestly like anything that has heart and soul put into it. So mostly anything not commercial. check out my last.fm if your interested to know what i listen to

I have been getting back into books lately. The one Im reading right now is, Cities of the Red Night by William S. Burroughs

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Like I said telling stories is my favorite!
