About Me


Trying to start a side biz so I can be my own boss and report to myself.


I am an enthusiastic, optimistic, semi-introvert depending on the circumstances, and goofy. I love to go do things/explore new things in the city on my own but wouldn't mind company once in a while. I am curious about all things and can be an intense listener when I meet you but when I get to know you better I will warm up. There is a lot to laugh about in life but can be pretty serious at times. I love philosophizing about human behavior and relationships.


There is so much to be learned and experienced.
Be the best version of yourself.
Do your best and forget the rest.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I show travelers a a wonderful time when they come visit my city, form new friendships with them, and participate in couchsurfing activities.


I have met super cool people passing through San Francisco and I find that travelers are very open minded and human in the fact that they learn more about who they are when they travel and share their learnings with others. It's an eye opening experience to hear their stories from other cultures and countries.


Getting sucked into delicious books
Working out/weight-lifting (P90X rocks!!)
Great conversations with people/friends
Trying new kinds of foods/restaurants
Enjoying nature and all its splendor
