About Me


My name is Zane Furtado and I lived most of my life in Mumbai, India. I stayed for a year and a half in Cardiff,Wales where I completed an MBA in Marketing and Strategy.

I work at a Publication house in Mumbai and my major role is to focus on the marketing strategies of one of our Alcobev Magazine - Ambrosia. My knowledge on Beer and Spirits is pretty decent due to my constant interaction with various Alcobev brands.

So much so that I recently completed a course on Beer and Packaging from the Institute of Brewing and Packaging, UK.

Ever since then I have been tasting various Ales and Lagers from around the world and am also training my palette to be a beer connoisseur.

I love to learn new cultures and am always open to new things and ideas.

I Look forward to meeting and hosting some interesting people out there..



Keep on smiling - and life will give you a big smile back!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to the CS project and only got to learn about it from close friends, who traveled the world surfing and shared their experiences with me. I am finally done with all the degrees and studying I wanted to achieve and I am now dedicating some time to traveling.

I intend to Host as well as Surf.


Soccer - Big fan of Manchester United and Cardiff City F.C. I do play a little soccer myself, local clubs in the city.

Love the outdoors!!!

I love to Cook and experiment with various cuisines. I might not be a Master Chef (yet), but I can make a mean Pork Chop and the greasiest beef burger in the world.
