Join Couchsurfing to see Adam’s full profile. It’s free!
I have a bit of a complicated story, having worked on 4 startups on 5 continents.
My LinkedIn has an abridged summary of that story: https://in.linkedin.com/in/walkadm
And the last 1.5 years I've been in Bangalore, India growing my startup www.hummingbill.com
I used to be very active on CouchSurfing, but unfortunately due to work and sensitive housemates, I haven't been able to host folks. I have a strong sense of guilt about that.
None the less, if you're up to something interesting and you're in Bangalore, please hit me up.
I love learning and experiencing new things.
I'm a couch surfing junkie.
I take from both the logical positivists and the phenomenologists, it's valuable to both model and experience reality
couchsuring if about destroying your preconceived notions
kill people with kindness

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
the moon hanging over Santorini, illuminating the entire island
backpacking for a week on the Appalachian Trail, mid Vermont to northern Massachusetts; the experience of being completely removed from society
standing at the edge of an Andean mountain watching the clouds envelope the surrounding mountains
literally stuck in an ocean of Czech people during the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Prague
watching the sunrise from a hot air balloon over the great Serengeti
