About Me


Conquer the World


Currently I am busy studying industrial design at Brigham Young University.


Pablo Picasso: “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” Well I did not think of it so maybe you might not consider it a personal philosophy, but he said it best and first.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy traveling and meeting new friends. Would love to host or show someone around in my home town (Salt Lake City) or the college town I go to school in (Provo).


Had some really incredible experiences both in London and Paris meeting new friends and sharing memorable experiences. Riding bikes around London together, and sharing Sri Lankan meals with our hands are just cliffnotes versions of my experiences.


Talking, outdoors, hiking, reading, handstands, planking, web surfing, waterskiing, snow-skiing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am currently trying to adopt the minimilist philosophy into my life. Where less is truly more. Though I study and design products, I have come to learn our "things" add. What truly matters are our relationships with others.
