About Me


"Hard times / require / furious dancing" A. Walker


Overall, more of a spirit traveller than a traveller's spirit. Dedicated, subtle, independent, warrior, thoughtful, restless, assertive, smiling, concrete, sincere, able of and not able of.

I multitask between dance (better, choreography) and filmmaking, and their inter-relation. The first one is my very first love. I believe in dedication as freedom - and I am learning how to take it easy here and there as well.

I am very much fascinated by passionate people with aims and goals who hope and dream, and disciplined travelers. I am a movie-goer and I enjoy quality theatre and dance performances, so please come along if you wish!

I don't eat meat, but I will not be bothered if you devour a beef ribcage in front of my eyes.

I am a Cancer, rising sign Libra. Moon in Sagittarius, Mars and Saturn in Scorpio, Jupiter in Capricorn, Venus and Mercury in Cancer. My favorite cartoons are the Zodiac Knights and Sailor Moon.

We gallop through our lives like circus performers balancing on two speeding side-by-side horses: one foot is on the horse called fate, the other on the horse called free will. And the question you have to ask every day is: which horse is which? Which horse do I need to stop worrying about because it's not under my control, and which do I need to steer with concentrated effort? E. Gilbert

Existentialist. And a wizard.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I show up here and there, I connect, I call up, I smile a lot.
At times I host, at times I get hosted.


Enough to know how to be a pleasant CS guest :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Together with 10 buddies, I organized a FlashMob of 500 people. I saw a 80 yo woman with bright red lipstick. I went for some and I have got even more. I loved without concern. I have chosen to let go.
