About Me


All the world is a stage in going thru


I'm an easy-going guy who keeps a fairly open mind about most things. I try to enjoy living life at my own pace, whether this means going out and traveling, or just chilling at home.


Things turn out best for those who make the best of how things turn out.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If I'm not traveling, feel free to crash my couch (currently floor).
