About Me

I am a budding sailor, an inventor and an entrepreneur, I design products that make surgeries safer.

I've started exploring healthy lifestyle, clean food, yoga and spirituality.

Activities in and around water are food for my soul - swimming, water-polo, scuba diving. Looking to learn freediving and sailing.

Fond of bathroom singing, puns and lame jokes.

I often travel around the world related my work and get to meet people around the world!

I hope to make my life a collection of great short stories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My dream is to go around the world some day in a sailboat and make friends and memories along the way!
