About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel, explore, meet people all over and learn from them

ABOUT ME

Im 23 years-old, try and be positive and open all the time. Im currently traveling until March, after touring with a band in western Europe and Scandinavia. This has so far been one of the most enriching experiences of my life, and I´ve learned so much through many random encounters that have forced me to believe in the existence of soemthing greater than ourselves.

PHILOSOPHY

hmmmm, I try and live according to what makes me happy and gives me and hopefully others satisfaction. That is why i make music, aside from the heaping amounts of money.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, I just started, but i plan on having people stay with me back in California after this trip. I´m currently looking for couches to crash on...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven´t had a couch surfing experience through this website yet, but I have slept on many couches and let friends and friends of friends sleep on my couch many a times as well. I think my best experience couch surfing is a very recent one. On Jan. 20th, I flew to Brussels, Belgium to begin a music tour, but i arrived a few days early and had no where to go, hostel was a backup. But i started talking to girl on my flight who was carrying a trumpet, and as i had a sax we had somethign to talk about. We soon discovered that we had a mutual friend and a lot in common, and she offered me to stay with her. I stayed with her for four nights and we became close friends, and it was so humbling to experience such generous and spontanious hospitality.

Interests

Music (many genres- balkan, jazz, electronic, hip-hop, folk...), cooking, yoga, kung-fu, breathing, stretching, beer, reading, learning new skills, rock-climbing, hiking, adventures, the unknown, staying balanced

Music, Movies & Books

currently reading autobiography of a yogi, currently listening to radiohead, the beatles, john coltrane, and sergei prokoffiev. last movie i watched was inception on the airplane and i really enjoyed it. I think there is a lot of truth in that movie as to the power of dreams.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I managed to be able to touch my chin to my toe. see it to believe it haha.

Teach, Learn, Share

i have learned a set of ancient stretches for Shao-Lin Kung Fu that help one gain immense flexibilty of done diligently. I can teach you the basics and show how you can apply it to help out your digestion, your back, and your general well-being. I can also talk about music for hours- music theory, recording and engineering, improvisation, sax, flute, piano. probably some other things im not aware of at the moment as well. I want to learn other people's beliefs about the universe and purpose, and local food.
