About Me

I am a 32 year old professional who enjoys traveling with purpose, especially to places where I can be involved in marine conservation. I love to dive, take photographs, illustration and fine art, writing, listening to music and learning guitar and any fun activity outdoors...especially in the ocean.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am moving to Redwood City CA area for a teaching job that pays very little and looking for a place to stay for around a month until I can sort out more permanent accommodation.
