About Me

It's hard to describe yourself. How I've been spending time: I'm mid-way through an environmental sciences degree but took a break to do some programming. I'm also a holistic massage therapist, I like cycling and dancing (especially lindy hop).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I joined CS some years ago out of need: I was broke and in Spain. In life I believe it is important to help others when I can and allow myself to be helped when I need it.

I think exploring a new place by tagging along with whatever your couch-host does is a great way to get to know what life is really like in another culture.

I am aware that CS is increasingly less transparent and for this reason I am moving somewhere I can really Be Welcome*

Music, Movies, and Books

I can play the first movement of the Moonlight Sonata and half of comptine d'autre ete by Yann Tiersen

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spring 2013 I (and 100-200 other people) seiged a big ice-castle deep in a forest somewhere near Moscow as part of a traditional event called Maslinitsa.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you bodywork or swing dancing steps, (acro)(yoga) or hulahoop tricks. I also used to teach English to non-native speakers

I want to learn more piano and math and also if you code that's cool.
