Help people travel the world
I'm a world traveler who has visited a lot of the world, but there is still much of the world still to be seen. I live in the city where I grew up and am fortunate enough to be in the middle of the action on the westside. I fly about 150,000 miles a year and my favorite part is actually the flying and airport experience.
Though now I work as a travel consultant in the past I've worked for a famous electronics company and for one of the world's largest newspapers as a photographer.
Either everything is hilarious or nothing is hilarious.
Laugh at everything, life's more fun when even the worst parts of life are enjoyable.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Though I usually don't host people I haven't met and sincerely trust from previous experiences, I often throw parties or hang out with people who I am introduced to who are staying at other people's homes nearby mine.
I was introduced to couch surfing by one of my best friends and since then I've realized it's an amazing way to be hospitable and show people around town as well as receive the hospitality of others when traveling. It helps bring a "small world" feeling to what can sometimes seem as daunting travelling.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm eager to learn about other cultures, it is the most fulfilling aspect of travelling. I'm willing to share aspects of my culture as well as I know many people are often interested in American culture. I travel a lot and love to share my tricks and secrets to maximize my travel experience. Not sure why I call them 'secrets' though since I freely share them with any one who is interested.
