About Me

Finished my master's degree last summer, and since then I'm working remotely and traveling when I can.

A curiosity-driven hedonist.

I have a ton of interests. Anything that requires or demonstrates a high level of skill, passion, or knowledge, is what I highly admire and want to learn more about, be it art, science or nature. I'm a problem solver, usually a rational and logical guy. So professionally, I'm passionate about all sorts of IT-related stuff, aspiring to be a jack of all trades.

Music junkie 🎧

Exploring is my thing. Whether it's strange, dangerous, deserted, or just a sunset, I'm there.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Traveling, meeting people, and multiculturality is what inherently attracts me and satisfies my hunger for exploring the world.

We're all sharing this place, and together, we grow faster. I see a lot of potential for growth everywhere around me, and I just love the infinite diversity of this world and it's people. I'm always down for sharing stories and experiences over a couple of beers.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music has a very special place in my life, it's my everyday companion which is here whenever and however I need it. I drain a lot of inspiration and motivation from music.

I like almost all genres of music, just stuff that's cool and has good vibes and grooves. On everyday basis this is mostly jazz/fusion, but I also enjoy funk, rock, metal, folk, rap, all kinds of stuff. I can find a mood for any type of music. :)

...except "noise", that's the one that baffles me.

I bought an electronic 🥁 kit and having fun with it atm.

I prefer to fill my evenings with socializing, however I can always make room for a movie with a mind-tickling plot.

The aforementioned sort of applies for books.. however, starting to read more often is very high on my hobby bucket list, right after learning to play the drums!

The last two books I started reading are:
- Neil Gaiman - American Gods
- A Mind For Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra) - Barbara Oakley

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went to the finals of a lipsync contest several times.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a lot of hobbies and interests, therefore a lot to share!
Whether it's about languages, science, music, technology, or just 🌎 and all of it's vast diversity, I'm always down for sharing and discussing thoughts and experiences.

I also have a terribly weird sense of humor, so I might treat you with some bad jokes.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm a good listener. I love learning about people and understanding cultures. I ADORE things which challenge me intellectually and spark discussions and brainstorms.

There is no such thing as a stupid question. ;)

I'm good at cooking, but also good at finding cheap local eats on tripadvisor.

I'm the guy that will sip coffee on the balcony for hours. Also the guy that will wait for the sunrise at an amazing viewpoint. And also the guy who will pressure you into going deeper into that scary cave we stumbled upon.

I can be an awesome company, or I can leave you with your thoughts, either is fine with me. (but I prefer the former)

I LOVE going to cultural events!
