About Me


to grasp all the small things and contemplate all the big differences


Currenty living near New York City, and as a student trying to expand my international and cultural horizons in combination with academic skills. As of my personality; there is no better way how to overcome my shyness than to travel and get to know people. The most enjoyable things for me are my piano, snowboarding and nature walks. I love to sink into memories about the past trips and plan new ones.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and I host (when I'm back home in Latvia). Change experiences and opinions.


So far great. Love to see people coming to my town and enjoying it.

Music, Movies, and Books

Recently Karl Ove Knausgard's "My Struggle" has taken over my mind. But "The Stranger", "Dubliners" and "On the Road" are on the top list as well.
Movies: The Grand Budapest Hotel, Twoce Born, Frances Ha, Annie Hall, L'Auberge Espagnole and many more.
Music is kind of tough to describe. Many Scandinavian musicians, Philip Glass, Nils Frahm, Bombay Bicycle Club, Chinawoman...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Every place I see and visit in some way is amazing, because it is the only on of that kind. Living in NYC definitely is so far the most amazing experience in my life. The cultural cocktail in big apple has let me understand and respect other people as well as my own values and goals.
