About Me


Enjoy everyday as if it's the last and make the least impact on your environment and on the less fortunate species!


Currently studying towards a PhD degree in Industrial Engineering - researching the field of water resources management (A field that needs our immediate attention these days).

I'm an adventurer, nature and animal lover, photographer, mountain climber, and a Vegan for almost 5 years (and RAW vegan for 2.5 years..)
I've had an amazing year of adventures in Australia and New Zealand and I'm still dreaming of my next journey...When I'm stranded in one place I love meeting fellow travelers while basking on their adventuring spirits or joining them for an expedition or two(:
To check out some of my travel photography go here:
to check out my raw vegan album (including recipes) go here:
(There ARE a few sample photos here on CS, but I don't update these regularly)

I've recently opened my very own company!
So, if you want to get some quality condoms during your visit to Israel, go here:

These are not only the best condoms in the world, they are also the only VEGAN condoms. Other condoms contain milk protein (casein), and involve testing on animals...

The site IS in Hebrew only unfortunately, but if you want more information in English I would be happy to provide it.


Hang out with people who are seeking the truth and RUN from people who claim to have found it...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I tell a lot of people about the project (only the "right kind" of people..)
My couch is a small one, but we could make some arrangements, otherwise I love showing people around/ or go catch some waves with fellow surfers/ surfer wannabes(:


1.Been couch-surfing with a Maori couple in Auckland, New Zealand - it's been a great experience and an insight into an unfamiliar culture.

2. At the very moment these lines are written, I am couch surfing at a fellow surfer's house in Port Macquire, Australia. just got to know the guy but so far it's been excellent(-: (will go surfing together soon)
3. On several occasions, been "couch-surfing" not through the site (with non-members), just by getting stuck by the side of the road at the right place and time, or even meeting people at the local pub who invite me over(-:


Sight-seeing, Hiking, Nature, Photography, Sky Diving, Scuba diving, Surfing, Motorbikes, rock-climbing or anything else that brings adrenalin rash...(:
When I wanna relax, I love a good movie or to try and get my Piano playing skills somehow close to the "good old days level"(:

Music, Movies, and Books

I'll probably forget many but here's a few of my favorites movies:
The lord of the rings, EARTHLINGS (the movie that made me go vegan), Requiem for a dream, Brave heart, Green Mile, Interview with the vampire, The Count of Monte Cristo and the list is still long...
I like many different kinds of music including:
metal, rock, celtic, spanish, jazz, blues, classical (I play the Piano as well).
I like to read mainly fantasy, suspense and science fiction books. The "Dark Tower" saga of 7 books by Stephen King was one of the best I've read...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1.Getting my skydiving license...
2.Traveling in Australia and New Zealand for a year -an amazing journey with lots of adventures.
3.Lots of mountain climbing in the dark, using only a small flashlight to light my way. (I often overdo my hikes and carry them deep into the night...)

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you some surfing if the swell is good at the time..
I love photography and know quite a bit about it.
I could tell you a lot about Veganism and diet in general - I'm a well informed raw vegan(:
I'm not an expert but I love the instrument and I could teach you some piano playing(:
I'm very much into Metal (and music in general) and loves to share it.
I've done a massage course back in Australia, so I can teach some of that as well.
If you are heading "down-under" I could teach you more about Australia/New Zealand than the average Kiwi/ Aussy(:

I'd love to know more about different cultures.
I'm always up to learning more about vegan cooking (or "uncooking")(:
