About Me


know and experience lives unlike mine

(If you are requesting to be hosted, please explain the nature of your visit/trip in detail, the plans for your stay, and some info about who you are and why we would be a good host/surfer match. I can usually only accomodate 1 night, maybe 2 depending on my schedule and your travel plans. Later in the week or weekends usually work best for me. **Fully vaccinated please.**)


if there was one way i could spend all my free time and if i had unlimited funds, it would be traveling

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Share the beautiful city of Austin with others, get to know new people, learn about different cultures


My first couchsurfing experience was actually "tentsurfing" in Tandil, Argentina. I did not have a tent, but met a wonderful guy who generously shared his tent with me, and others who were also in desperation.
