Hi there! My name is Brad Larino. (Pronounced like Dan Marino but with an L)
I graduated from the University of Tampa, and work as an Account Executive at a local advertising agency. My current mission is to ski at least 50 days this season on my Ikon pass. In the summer I’ll resume my other mission: to cross off as many mountain bike trails from my bucket list as humanly possible. Here is my current list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bF-HTYvFR2yvNT0B_9Fozh9WPYBLui8Y79gt7geyyW4/edit
You can follow my journey on my Instagram: @bradlarino
As a military kid, I moved every 4 or so years of my childhood, so I have a natural knack for making new friends and a constant urge to be on the move and explore new places. If given the options between doing something new or staying in and lounging around the house, I will always choose to do something new.
I love food and trying local beers. Though I am a vegetarian, I value table fellowship over my personal agenda. If you've only prepared meat for me, I will eat what you have prepared. If I am cooking, it will be vegetarian.
I would love to swap stories, show you some great spots in Tampa if you have the time, and give you a place to crash for the night.
I work remote 8:30-5:30 EST Monday-Friday but have some flexibility to dip out early if I’m caught up on my work.
There are differing opinions on COVID, but here are mine:
- I’m vaccinated and boosted
- I still wear masks out in public
- I adhere to social distancing guidelines and actually have come to enjoy the extra room in public spaces haha
- I do get out on occasion for dinner or a drink, but try to stick to place with spacious outdoor patios.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I couch surf to experience new places with like-minded locals, discover similarities in different cultures and to meet new people.
- mountain biking
- being in nature
Music, Movies, and Books
Right now I am big into Maggie Rogers, HIAM, Arctic Monkeys, Leon Bridges and Parker Milsap.
I am all about my Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Jimmy Carrey classics. Most recently I've read Nadia Murad's The Last Girl and am currently reading God and Money.
I typically enjoy reading about adventure or history. I’m also big into podcasts: Freakonomics radio and NPR’s Hidden Brain are some of my favorites
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've completed two food challenges in my life - the Tchoupitoulas Challenge at Creole Creamery in New Orleans, LA and the Voodoo Challenge at Voodo Donuts in Portland, OR.
