About Me

I speak Spanish, English, Portuguese, and French.

I am Asher, an American traveler living abroad since 2008 and have been very active in CS since around 2005 as both Host and Guest!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am interested to teach/learn many languages.

I love to actively explore new places, meet new people, and if/when I'm actually in my country, show off the amazing sites around me to guests.


I love nature, meditation, languages, creativity, and technology.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've started, run, and sold a successful start up. I've led a company. I've left it all twice to travel. I've run a marathon, I've taught at two major universities, without a masters. I'm a precocious child in the art of life-style design. American, but lived in Latin America for 2-3 years, Europe for 2-3 years, Africa/Caribbean/Mid-East for a year, and Asia for a 1.5 years.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach professionally and personally every day. I learn professionally and personally every minute. I travel in both respects too. I make my life about the things I love.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to talk about life.
