About Me


I'm a community Lyft/Uber driver and willing to exchange services for anyone who needs transportation. Right now I need a place to stay, Please contact me. I can offer tours, transportation and access to startup community for those of you that are working on startups.

You can also learn more about me at


Traveling is my passion, I love learning about new cultures and experiencing it through the local people. I love cycling, swimming, beaches, hiking, cooking, bbq, finding new places / activities.
I also like playing pool and run a local pool league :o)


There's more to life than having a job. Find your passion and pursue it. Treat others the way you'd like to be treated, 'Be the change you wish to see in this world'.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been active part of CS for 2 years, met so many amazing people through here. I felt like this community saved my life as I people make my world and as beautiful as California is, I had a tough time finding people that lived for more than just a beautiful place.

There's no better story than a random adventure between 2+ people, shared with another traveller.


I proud to say after many years, I now have my international groups of friends from Germany, India, France, England, Hungary, Brazil, Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea and many more. :o)
I enjoy cooking with friends, we have potlucks, bbq's, beach parties, taco tuesdays and music festivals.

I've attended 2 CouchCrashes to date Austin and Baja Mexico, excited for more.


My core passion is creative design and problem solving. This applies to architecture, software, fashion, precious metals etc. I like watching movies when I get a chance, being inspired by art, music, dancing, comedy and people that really did something significant in their lives.
