About Me

I quit my job to travel around the United States for half a year. Seeing where the road takes me and what I learn about myself. Practicing being comfortable on my own.

I'm a lover of creativity, seeking out those who live and dgaf.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To gain a better understanding of a place through the perspective of locals.

To share experiences and stories, good and bad.

To see that there are many, many ways to live and be happy in this world.


Photography, cinema, architecture and design. Exploring old places and learning new things. I prefer working with my hands and appreciate good craft.

Always looking for the independent, DIY art/music scene everywhere I go. Also looking for the best bean and cheese burrito.

And stick and poke tattoos.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like music and art to be independent and most importantly, raw. and punk/hardcore.

Local musicians, artists, and creators. Kubrick is my dude, anything from Mexican directors, french new wave cinema, and good dialogue.

Making time to read more, some favorites are the little prince, age of reason, and the places we'll go.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I traveled through Vietnam and saw the land my parents are from.

I met some really amazing people. People that had a certain glow and the biggest smiles on their faces despite how little they had. It made me think about quality of life and quality of happiness. Here were people that didn't have much but still enjoyed life as much as anyone else.

That trip I got to spend my 21st birthday swimming under waterfalls in Sapa.

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to be a bike mechanic for several years, I can get you rolling again. I have my mom's recipe for peanut sauce and spring rolls. I know my way around a camera. I can change the oil in your car.

I can use some lessons on guitar and harmonica, though. And always looking for easy recipes.

I've been photographing my travels:

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can take your portrait for your social mediaz.

How about photos for when the holidays come around? Your parents will enjoy seeing you and your dog(s)/significant other/houseplant.

I'll take some nice photos of that couch you wanna get rid of on craigslist.
