*Note: my verifications expired years ago and I cannot update some of them because I they require a smart phone, which I don't have.*
I live on the edge of San Leandro, CA with a wonderful housemate, Chantel. We are both native to the Bay Area, and work a lot. We both lead busy lives, but are able to welcome guests occasionally when our schedules allow.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Even though I joined CS in 2010, I've only been active on the site for the past few months.
I used to be a member of GlobalFreeloaders.com, and then moved to CS after that website became less active. I had great experiences meeting people on GlobalFreeloaders.com, and so far I've met a couple of great people on CS and I look forward to meeting more. :-)
