Help make the world a smaller and more friendly place!
I am fun loving, willing to try pretty much anything new and don't take myself too seriously. I find inspiration from creativity. I'm an optimist and want to remain young at heart forever. In the bigger cities I like the nightlife - drink, go out, drink, eat, drink, dance and party! HIGH energy level
Hard Core, natural, REAL, self reinvention
Wander just enough to be lost.
I live life for innovation, to create something new.
also, i don't want to grow up -- BUT i don't want to stop growing EITHER
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Host at my place, attend CS functions and meet CSers when traveling. I like to show my city to people that when in New York just wanna kick it and enjoy many of its great attractions -- ranging from bars, clubs, restaurants to museums, shows and parks.
I've meet some GREAT people, many of whom I hope to see again and again and again. The true COMMUNITY is what I like the most. CS has expanded my perceptions -- which helps me advance, stay fresh and exposed. It has been good to have a change to get to know people coming from all over the world, since NYC is soo highly traveled.
Many interests... I do a lot of different things, but not necessarily all of them often.
Traveling (need I say), meeting new folks, cooking, eating, yoga, drinking, dancing, recreatonal sports such as snowboarding, scuba diving, snorkeling and skiing, tennis, biking, running / marathons, dancing, music, literature, independent films, film festivals, ballet, museums and modern art.
