About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to feel alive every day of my life.

ABOUT ME

I guess the best word to describe myself is an adventurer. I enjoy taking risks. So, I've tried most adventure sports. These days I've been trying to improve my surfing. I've been traveling since august 2010 and my trip ends February 2011 in Brazil. Aside from traveling and sports, I love to cook and hang out with friends. I am easily entertained by life and yet expect way too much from it at the same time.

PHILOSOPHY

Recently, I've been trying to live life in the moment. I think a lot, so it is difficult for me.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm back in the Bay Area after 7 months of traveling. I'm trying to get settled before opening my home to CSers.

I live in Oakland, a 15 minute train ride to San Francisco. I have to say that I'm not the best tour guide since I've only lived in SF for half a year. So, I'm not super knowledgeable about the best restaurants and hang out places. I know the financial district best since that is where I worked.

Right now, I'm unemployed, so taking a CSer around is financially difficult for me. If you stay with me, please be aware that I won't be taking you around in SF. Of course, we can hang out.

If your interested in learning about the East Bay, I have a lot of knowledge to share and I can take you around.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first and only CSing experience was in Rio, Brazil. AMAZING. The people in Brazil are wonderful. I wouldn't have enjoyed Brazil as I did if it weren't for CS.

cooking, eating, surfing, skiing, walking, swimming, rock climbing, trapeze flying... obviously traveling.
