About Me


to learn as much as I can about myself and the world around me


I love outdoor activites, ranging from snowboarding, biking, and skydiving/parachuting. I'm all about putting myself in situations where I'm not totally comfortable to grow as a person. In other words, I love facing my fears and think that that's the purpose of life, to conquer your fears.
I am very health conscious and am a vegan for ethical reasons. I am a nonsmoker and try to avoid indoor secondhand smoke whenever possible, so I don't want to stay with someone who smokes indoors.
I usually meditate one hour everyday unless there are extreme circumstances. It's the best time to face your fears/problems.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I'm a college student studing abroad. I don't have a couch available for anyone to sleep in, but when I go back to school in the USA I will. So I will reciprocate eventually to the couchsurfing community. I am a big fan of diversity and am openminded; it's ok if others have different views than my own.


None so far, I'm new, but that will change soon.


Helping the people, animals, and the planet.
Live simply so others may simply live.

Meditation increases your attention span and memory and decreases the activity of the amygdala, the region of the brain that handles fear.
