About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Listen and converse with others to hear their life stories

ABOUT ME

I am an enthusiastic, optimistic, semi-introvert depending on the circumstances. 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 can be an intense listener when I meet you but when I get to know you better I will warm up. I see a lot of humor in life and love to laugh a lot but can be pretty serious at times. I love philosophizing about human behavior and relationships.

PHILOSOPHY

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

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

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

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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.
