Join Couchsurfing to see Jacob + Sarah’s full profile. It’s free!
Be amazing. Be helpful.
Happy to Help! Nice guy who loves to speak Brazilian Portuguese (but makes do with his native American English). Married to Sarah, an amazing woman from the American east-coast. Enthusiastic about life.
I have a sarcastic dry sense of humor, and I love playing with words.
Honesty, Transparency, and Openness are keys to living today. I want to be kind, helpful, friendly, fun, respectful, tolerant, and supportive of/with others.
I believe there are awesome people in every faith, and I can learn from just about everybody. I'm a mormon ( http://mormon.org/me/1H70 ). Of course I know that couchsurfing is for couchsurfing, not "preaching". I'll answer questions if you ask, but I won't talk religion unless you want to. ;)
I love theatre, specifically musical theatre. I audition for shows every chance I get! I love to cook and paint and decorate cakes. I like learning about different cultures. I'm from all over, but I like to claim New England as home.
I'm currently a stay at home mom to my beautiful baby boy, Scott. I find it fascinating to watch him grow and learn. Oh the first time he learned how to climb up on the couch freaked me out! It was wonderful but wow! Scott loves to talk and crawl and stand and read/eat books.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I (Jacob) used my move from UT to VA to finally try out CS. Now? I'm looking forward to more. My wife and I love to host people, and we're looking forward to surfing together on our next trip out of town. CS is awesome!
I (Jacob) surfed during my move from UT to VA. I have also CS in Europe when I was there for a tech conference. Experiences were awesome.
We have hosted a few great people. It is great to get to know people from all walks of life. Such fun, interesting, and thought provoking conversation.
Brazilian Portuguese, reading or listening to books, building websites (Neos for the win!), entrepreneurship and business, thinking (ideas are awesome), space, sci-fi (Stargate & Star Trek), hero movies/shows, helping people, camping, hiking, rock-climbing, enjoying the outdoors, and of course traveling (I wish I had more time for all of these).
Painting, cooking, gymnastics, reading my favorite books, watching my favorite shows/movies.
