About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm working on integrating couchsurfing into my life. I've been talking on the site for some time and I've loved the idea since I learned about it. I am now trying to do as much couchsurfing as humanly possible.

So far I've been hosted in Dayton Ohio, Las Vegas, Barcelona, Paris, Marseilles, Avignon, Munich, Pforzheim, Mannheim, Frankfurt, Katowice, Washington DC, Baltimore, Detroit, Quetzaltenango, Antigua, Guatemala City, Ocotal (Nicaragua), Achuapa (Nicaragua), Cancun, Fort Lauderdale, Lexington (KY), Chicago, Minneapolis, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Jose, Los Angeles, Malibu, Long Beach, Montevideo, Puerto Natales (Chile), Barranquilla (Colombia), San Francisco, Reno, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Nashville, and Charleston. I've also met couchsurfers in Zurich, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Dortmund, London, Utila, Antigua, Cancun, Merida, Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach, Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, Bariloche, Concepción, Santiago, Oklahoma City and several other cities.

Couchsurfed the Dayton Ohio Invasion March 2008. Had a wonderful experience. Was planning to just stop by, but ended up spending the whole weekend. Very glad I did. My hosts were wonderful and we had a great time seeing Dayton and spreading couchsurfing joy to everyone we passed.

Eager to host. Eager to surf more. Spreading the word to everyone I meet.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm happy to exchange English practice for Spanish practice. I am happy to share my thoughts about various cultures including my native culture.

I'd like to improve my Spanish, learn to Salsa better, and generally enhance my artistic/creative side and become more social.
