About Me

Gosh. Well, I don't do very well with these summary things.

I currently live in San Diego and work in software for nonprofits. I love spontaneous adventures, being outside, and meeting all sorts of people.

I just moved into a new apartment, and depending on how things go with work and roommates, hope to host a few of you lovely people in spring 2017. I'm just learning the city, but I am happy to hang with anyone passing through who might need a friendly face!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think traveling on a shoestring is one of the best things, ever. If I can help others do so and introduce them to the lovely place I live, or see the world through a local's eyes, I think that is pretty dandy.

Music, Movies, and Books

I can't get over Isabel Allende. She writes beautifully.

I love acoustic, Latin music (unashamed Marc Antony fan), jazz, dubstep, and discovering new bands.

I don't watch many movies, but I just watched Unbroken and it was highly impactful. If I had to pick a genre, I really love documentaries and international films.
