About Me


Travel the world, serve people while having fun


Pretty laid back guy who likes making new friends and showing people around. I want to travel as much as possible so am trying to save more money. Eventually, want to be involved in more social service organizations so I can contribute more to society.
Lucky to be living in Hawaii for over 10 years and can't have enough of paradise!
I have lived for over the past 5 years at the East West Center community of over 500 scholars and students from over 50 countries.
Like tennis, swimming, yoga, boogie boarding, meditation.


Live to give and serve and the best will come back to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been involved with couch surfing friends for over 3 years now. I have been showing them around in Honolulu even though I only just signed up at the CS website.


I am new to the site and so am looking forward eagerly to make connections and new friends and travel the world.


Watching movies, music, hiking, parties, interesting conversation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had joined a team of teachers who started a native Hawaiian school 10 years in Honolulu, Hawaii, and it was one of the most challenging, interesting, learning, and innovative experiences I have ever had in my life so far.

Teach, Learn, Share

Please let me know if you are interested in visiting Hawaii and traveling there as I can definitely give you many good tips. I have also been teaching English to foreign students in Hawaii for over 5 years now so hit me up if you want to improve your skills in this language area.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My travel experiences in Hawaii, Thailand, Cambodia have taken me through humongous experiences on both sides of the spectrum. I've worked with native Hawaiian schools, acted in a Hollywood movie and have joined new age groups like Sukyo Mahikari, attended Sokka Gakkai chantings and also done Zen meditation and Qi-Aikido among other things
