About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Too many to list. Write. Travail. Stretch. Search.

ABOUT ME

i travel as much as possible, and i love to meet people. there aren't many places i don't want to go, and or many people i wouldn't talk to.

PHILOSOPHY

life is an exquisite mirage we laugh and cry about. why not enjoy. never wait for.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

i've met probably more than 300 people on CS, i've hosted 40 maybe? and i've been hosted around the same amount. now i'm a nomadic ambassador, which means that i propose such an such ideals about hospitality and respectful treatment while facilitating myself and others to surf exotic couches. i think we should call this position, the exotic couch facilitator.

i have couchsurfed for months at a time in south america and in europe. i've hosted people in Budapest and New York City.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

i've seen ankor wat, one of the wonders of the world, and i worked on a marijuana plantation once in switzerland- i thought that was amazing, at the time. a friend and i hitchhiked 2000 km in argentina, that was fun. i recently sang a mariachi song at a posh wedding in colombia and all the guests went crazy over it, maybe that was the most amazing experience. there are too many things to list, because it's not hard to amaze me.

Teach, Learn, Share

i have met thousands of people in the last ten years, during which i have traveled in 30 countries. it gives me the dickens, when i start thinking about all the people i've met and the experiences and ideas they have shared with me- and then i'm like, damn i gotta get out there and learn more, we people have things to talk about, there are conversations to be had! if you have ideas, are polyglot, artistic, cultured, above all curious, contact me.
