About Me

CURRENT MISSION

never stop learning, traveling and connecting with people

ABOUT ME

I am a young adventurous person who is always eager to learn and experience something new. I live in Canada, my family is Italian and have an in depth knowledge of Asia that I believe gives me an interesting perspective of the world. As I get older I see the benefits travel has bestowed upon me and the way I live my life, I hope only to further grow as time passes on.

PHILOSOPHY

Do everything once don't be afraid to have new experiences. As well be open minded learn from your fellow man/women. If you are too set in your way of thinking you will never progress.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can be your Toronto guide, or take you for a coffee

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was at a couch surfing meetings in Ho-chi-min,Osaka and Toronto, but I have meet travelers at hostels and other events while traveling. I have surfed once in Japan, in Istanbul all over Kazakhstan, Korea and a really crazy night in Bishkek.

Interests

I love history and understanding its effect on modern day. In addition I would like to get more involved in sustainable tourism approaches, if possible I would like to start my own adventure tourism organization in the Future. If im not thinking or reading you can find me watching a movie, I love movies!

Music, Movies & Books

I love 80's heavy metal and hair bands like iron maiden, Bon Jovi and the scorpions. On top of that I love Japanese hair metal like X-Japan. in terms of movies I love two extremes one is romantic comedies( I have seen the Wedding Singer 50+ times) and then I love science fiction movies like star wars, Aliens and Masters of the Universe are some of my favorites

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most amazing thing I have done at this point is I hitch hiked from Fukuoka-Osaka while I was traveling Japan as well I Hitch hiked around Okinawa. The people in Japan are very kind and if your a young guy traveling alone I highly recommend it. One of the most amazing things I have seen ins the Sun rise the mountains of Java the main island Indonesia. I can swear the mixture of greenery, fog was so beautiful I could have sworn I was in heaven.

Teach, Learn, Share

To be honest I dun have anything profound to write here at the moment, I am kinda like an artist waiting for insparation I know I wanna travel, but i need to meet more people and see more places before i can paint my masterpiece if that makes sense,. I am hoping that Couch surfing will help with this insparation.
