About Me


American dude living in Los Angeles, occasionally go to other locales to check out local life elsewhere.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


This site is very useful for making contacts, glad to offer knowledge/expertise of my area to anyone who asks. My work schedule is heavy and unpredictable so I haven't had the opportunity to host yet.


simply put, I think staying in one place for too long allows one to grow complacent, so visiting other parts of the world is a fun challenge and a good way to remain sharp, as a person.


Sports, particularly NFL football and ice hockey. Very interested in local sporting events and know a fair amount about cricket. Learned about it in Australia last year and still read the headlines on occasion.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'll use this space to recommend -- LA's #1 station for brand new, eclectic music from all around the world. Available live and on-demand for free, worldwide, check it out.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

#1 travel experience so far was playing cricket on St. Kilda beach in Melbourne, Australia. They said I made a really nice run-out play.

Teach, Learn, Share

My professional expertise is in video production, but I'm pretty good with my hands and value volunteering. I guess the top thing I could offer would be advice for people looking to live in/visit "Hollywood." For people interested in how the entertainment industry works, I'd be glad to share what I know. It's very interesting working in an industry whose product is so pervasive, all over the world.

Ádemas, tengo habilidad modesta en español, y quiero mucho aprender y practicar más con otros. Trabajaba a veces en programas español (deportes en vivo) y escucho bueno, pero pienso mucho en las veces que yo necesitaba hablar. Me gustare asistir más eventos sociales, es dificil pensar completamente en la idioma pero tratare con ningun problema.
