About Me


Be enthusiastic


• I enjoy meeting new people, either those with similar - or entirely different - fields of interest. It's always fascinating to meet new people and share ideas, jokes, good company.

• I like capturing good motives with my camera.

• Cooking is a passionate activity - either experimenting on my own, or learning/sharing from/with others.

• And I'm interested in you, your ideas and life, in an honest and respectful way.


If I work hard, and put sufficient effort behind my actions, I can reach any goal. But only if I remember to rest and enjoy the small moments in my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was a very active volunteer for a year
-- city ambassador Nov 2007-May 2008.
-- nomadic ambassador June 2008-Oct 2008.


I have met many magnificent hosts and guests and had my life really enriched since I became a member.

Music, Movies, and Books

MusicRock, jazz, funk, house, contemporary, classic, techno/electro/trance, traditional musicBooksI plan to read a couple of German books soon, so that I can freshen up my vocabulary. And I want to read some French books when I get time (probably not until I retire).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I promoted CS on live national TV.

Visit to local villages in India (nov 2006) to see development projects in agriculture, schools and medical programs.

Teach, Learn, Share

• How to boil water (and cook delicious meals)
• Basic and more advanced yoga postures
• How to bring quality into your life

If you are interested, you can also ask me about entrepreneurship.

I would like to learn beach volley because I like the sport and it's a great activity during the summer. Much better than being lazy in the sun.
