About Me


Learn how to make the world a better place and find out what I could do for that.


These days many start backpacking all around the world as soon as they're out of school or even earlier. I didn't do so, instead preferring to read about all the interesting and fascinating places and things far away. But slowly I'm coming to a conclusion, that at least some of those places and things should be closer experienced. Therefore I am open to meet new people and travel to new locations, even without a clear plan of what is there, further away.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For meeting travellers and other interesting people over a few cups of coffee or glasses of beer. In the future, I may be able to host.


Books: Almost any fiction, especially historical novels, human relationships, fantasy, sci-fi and speculative fiction. Many types of fact books, such as history, geography, travel, societal, humanist and philosophical books.
Food and drinks: I most enjoy baking, and I am open to try most exotic foods and drinks.
Computers: Writing good and efficient software and making sure it's high quality.
Sports: Bicycling, wandering, swimming, yoga.
