About Me


did you guys just play bball?


My name is Benjamin Atencio- I'm your typical renaissance man, my favorite number is 27.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed a lot of couches, but never using this website. From sleeping on the couch/floor after parties to sleeping on friends of friends of friends' couches while traveling. I am a clean and generous person and you will not regret letting me stay. Have a good day!


Reading, writing, biology, surfing, photography, music, art, traveling, cycling, football(soccer)... you know, stuff.

Music, Movies, and Books

There are seriously too many good books, movies, and music to list here. I love all three and would enjoy sharing my taste with you, but this section is not a proper forum.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just ask me, I got stories...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you all about biology, ecology, evolution, fish (ichthyology), marine mammals, bicycles and bicycle repair, surfing, surf culture, california... I am a wealth of knowledge and love to share!
