About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Building a website for artists who support the Occupy movement

ABOUT ME

I was born in Poland in '82. Emigrated to the States with my parents in '84. Grew up in Ohio, then Nebraska, then back in Ohio, then Connecticut. Lived in CT for a while and now in New Jersey. I don't have any other family in the States other than my parents and my sister. My uncle and his family emigrated to Canada. Otherwise my family's spread out around Europe and that's where I've done most of my travelling. But I'd love to branch out.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to live my life one day at a time. The summer I spent travelling across Europe last year was very spiritually moving for me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Just started.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven't met anybody through Couchsurfing yet but so many of the people I do know are already on Couchsurfing. It's probably the right place for me to be.

Interests

I'm an artist who'll try to master any kind of medium I can get my hands on. Although I'm not much good at making music. I don't tend to make a lot of formal art in general. Mostly documentary. Writing, theatre and most recently photography have been big areas of interest.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I scaled the cliffs of Normandy in a pair of flip-flops. My life was in God's hands, not that I intended it to be that way. I was hanging on for dear life to a few blades of grass.
