About Me


Living my dream, every day


What would people say about me?

They'd probably say I'm a genuinely interesting person with a lot to say, and desire to listen to others. They'd say I seem to connect with people easily, that I am able empathize. That I can be orthogonal.


My life is a constant pursuit of dreams and fun. Continuing developing as a person is of utmost importance to me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I opened an account while hitchhiking across Europe back in 2008 and have been hosting since 2009.

Music, Movies, and Books

Waking Life, The Big Lebowski, The Matrix, Rocknrolla.

I absolutely adore Carl Sagan's "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage".

My musical tastes are very diverse, but I listen to a lot of electronic music in particular.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I skydove, twice. Also, did the tallest commercially available bungee jump in the world.

\begin{nerd talk}
I've used the Moessbauer effect to measure the special relativistic Doppler shift at cm/s speeds.
I've measured the hyperfine splitting in Rubidium 87.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to practice my Hebrew, German and Spanish. I speak Romanian, Russian, English, a bit of Turkish. It would blow my mind to meet someone who speaks Esperanto, especially natively.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Thoughts about the poetic aspects of science, the origin of life.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Mexico, Russian Federation, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland

Countries I’ve Lived In
