Why I’m on Couchsurfing

As someone who has surfed the couches of countless kind souls all over the world, I’ve always admired the capacity for a person to be kind and generous to a total stranger with no expectation of anything in return.

Now that I have my own space in one of my favorite cities in the world (San Francisco), it’s my turn to pay it forward.

Can’t wait to connect with you!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music is life! I like everything from country to jazz, bluegrass to salsa, dance hall to disco, reggaeton to 80’s.

I also love listening to audiobooks, especially about health, psychology, and self-development. Some favorites:

Atomic Habits — James Clear
Gifts of Imperfection — Brene Brown
Mating in Captivity — Esther Perel

Not huge on TV and I’m really bad a pop culture and movies, but I’ve watched every episode of Friends AT LEAST 3x.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

+ Sleeping under the stars in the Negev Desert, hiking to the top of Mount Masada to watch the sunrise, and floating like a cork in the Dead Sea all within 24 hours

+ Traveling solo through Europe for two months at 22 years old on a budget of less than $1000 (largely thanks to Couchsurfing)

+ Seeing 8 octopi on my first night scuba dive in Cozumel

+ Selling all my possessions and Airbnb hopping around the United States for a year during a global pandemic

+ Starting a business from scratch and scaling it to 6 figures in 2 years
