About Me


To save the world and to dance in every country...


I am easy-going and laid back. Like to travel all over the world and mingle with people of different cultures. So many places to go, so many people to meet, so little time. Maybe this site will help me achieve some of that.

Whenever I travel, I like to do what the locals do, eat what they eat, dance where they dance, rather than spend time in a hotel or a tourist resort! And, oh, wherever in the world I go, I have to visit the nearest SALSA club. That is one of my big passions. I work as a software developer and my work pretty much takes me across the world. I find this quite exciting, as I like to travel. In that respect, I consider myself lucky - getting paid to do what I enjoy.

I worked hard for quite a few years, especially through my 20s and it got to the point that I had almost forgotten the reason why I was working in the first place. The thing is that my work was supposed to pay for the lifestyle I wanted to live. And how did I want to live? I wanted to climb mountains, learn to play the saxophone, go skydiving, go deep sea diving and fight social justice along the way.... Today, I work as an IT contractor for just about 7 months a year. The other 5 months, I have been working on some personal software project. I also try to do some of the things that I have always wanted to do - travel, dance, save the world etc etc. I also ensure that I am never at work during my lovely daughter's holidays.

I like the idea of this site. I hope I can travel. I am happy to accommodate for short periods, but I have to be careful who I let into my house as I have a little daughter who stays with me most weekends. Sorry I have not thought of anything better to put here because I am writing this in a hurry - well actually I am just transferring my profile info from hospitality club to couchsurfing. Will think of more info later. otherwise, just ask if you want to know more about me.


NOTE: I now have two lodgers in my house. They will be there for most of 2013, so it will be more difficult for me to host. I will only be able to manage 1 or 2 days, occasionally. However, I will still give extra consideration to Salsa dancers :) and I can always help in many other ways, including giving emergency help or showing visitors around London.


Life truly is short, so I am trying to live as much and as fast as I can before I die.
