About Me


I'm into keeping a hands-on approach to life.


I've been into endurance sports most of my adult life, including triathlons, marathons, and hiking mountains.

I also enjoy personal finance, economics, and baseball.


Literally, personal "love of wisdom?" Yes, I would love to have more wisdom!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have a nice couch; I think it would make a nice spot for 8 hours of rest. You can either sleep old-school style, or for the advanced CSer, you can use the hide-away bed!

We live 2 miles off of PCH. If you're trekking between LA and San Diego, this is a great location as camping is a little sparse in north Orange County.


My ratio of hosting to surfing is about 3 to 1. I enjoy hosting, while I am working as a way for me to travel vicariously.


Reading, fixing things, and running.
