About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to keep on growing

ABOUT ME

I'm a curious soul who likes to take each day as it comes, but with flexible life goals - like learning to fly a plane or making a documentary. I love expanding my comfort zone, experiencing new things, meeting new people, connecting, and sharing. I enjoy deep conversations as well as meaningless ones, and small things make me happy.

Couch Surfing is great because it's all about connection and sharing, and I love the idea of experiencing culture rather than just looking at it. I imagine like most people on here - I'm easy to get along with, open minded and honest, and respect others way of living.

Oh and I like tea... and LOVE food!

PHILOSOPHY

BE in the moment... life is a bunch of memories, so make them the best they can be. And for all the experiences that I miss, I'm experiencing the one that I should.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Nov 2014 Currently in between Cyprus and London until next year, spending quality time with friends and family, and saving funds before I move again in Feb.

Mar 2014 Hmmm... Well since my big travels ended in 2013 I haven't been very active on couchsurfing, which makes me a little sad - I got all busy with "figuring out what to do with my life", and soon remembered that's just not me... so I spent time freelancing, saving, visiting friends and family in London, Cyprus and New York, and then made a move to Bali in October to work and study. Maybe I should find out what the couchsurfing community are up to here! =) Sept 2012 It's about time I updated this... I hosted many surfers on my futon/sofa bed in Brooklyn, NY. I've been traveling around for the last 9-months road-tripping, and couch surfing, and meeting new people.

April 2010 I just joined so I don't really know yet... but I have a futon/sofa bed for fellow couch surfers to sleep on. And I plan on traveling myself with the intention of couch surfing and meeting new people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted the first week I joined - and it was as awesome as I imagined!

...I've LOVED it ever since!

Interests

meditation, yoga, health, food, life, learning, change, people, philosophy, psychology, travel, the sea, the sky, nature, park swings, movies, stories, art, music, technology, science, problem solving, volunteering, sharing... oh so many things...

Music, Movies & Books

Movies - Hmmm... far to many... mostly dramas, psychological, true stories, documentaries, art house, foreign...

Music - Almost everything... just not really heavy metal, techno stuff.

Books - I don't read enough... but mostly non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I'd probably have to say...

...all the amazing people I've met around the world ...completing a 12-day vipassana course in Myanmar (Burma) ...spending one month at the Satyananda Ashram in Australia ...the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, USA ...scuba diving with whale sharks in Utila, Honduras ...snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, Australia ...sky dive over Lake Wanaka, NZ ...and everything else that equals life!

Teach, Learn, Share

If anyone has a question about the places I've lived/been to - feel free to contact me.

Other than that, I know a lot about meditation, yoga, coaching, branding, design, and other techy things like that.

And generally... if you have any questions - even if it's random - just ask.
