About Me

I lived in NYC all of my life. I've worked all kinds of jobs in this city, including production assistant, dispatcher, photo editor, photographer, training assistant. I plan on traveling as much as possible these coming months. What I REALLY want to do is sail around the world by myself. I don't have a boat... nor do I know how to swim, so I'm pretty far behind. I dunno... maybe what I want to do is drive around the country. Anyway, I'm a laid-back guy that enjoy watching movies and do outdoorsy stuff. I'm big on romanticism, with a large dose of pragmatism.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting new people. I like to know why people live the way they do and choose to live where they live. There's so many ways we can live. If only I have all the time to live and experience them all. The next best thing is to meet as many locals around the world as possible and understand vicariously through them.


Bicycle time! Wheeeeee!
