About Me


to fill out this profile


I fit on most couches. I don't snore.


Keep learning. Don't use golf umbrellas in the city.

Sam Johnson once said second marriages are 'the triumph of hope over experience'. but maybe this gag is also a good philosophy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It's good to open the doors sometimes.


couch curious.


Reading, meeting people, swimming in the sea, hot yoga, some martial arts. All films in all languages. Most music, especially something i've never heard before. Most photography. Dance classes that make you laugh because the moves are impossible.

Music, Movies, and Books

What a question. I'll have to come back to this.
For right now, I can tell that I'm reading 'Everything is Illuminated'. Listen to this: "...the hole, she was learning, is not the exception in life, but the rule. The hole is no void; the void exists around it."
Maybe tomorrow I'll have something more upbeat and peppy. But that's what I've just read.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching my 10 week old niece laughing in her sleep.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could read something with you, or give English lessons or proof-read / edit something.

I'd like to learn how to be human. Or maybe how to cook.
