About Me


To go forth and set the world on fire! :)


Ciao a tutti! Originally from the Philippines, I have spent the last five years moving from one place to another. I enjoy meeting a lot of remarkable people as I continue to immerse myself in cultures that are just as foreign as my own.


- "Faccio una bella figura." - "Go forth and set the world on fire."

There is no excuse for mediocrity. I strive to be the best that I can be. I live to save lives.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


My couch is currently unavailable. At the moment, I am only hanging out and taking couchsurfers around the city of Chicago. I also try to go to CS Chicago group events as much as I can.

When I travel, I enjoy meeting up with other travelers and couchsurfing as well!

Music, Movies & Books

I am a sponge; I am interested in a wide range of genres.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I usually instigate shenanigans with my friends, just like when I was climbing the 999 steps to the Palamidi Castle in Nafplio; mountain-biking all over the island of Spetses (where I was stranded for a couple of days); waking up only to find myself locked inside a bus in Sorrento; camping in the freezing Bavarian cold in Munich; chasing people in the streets of Beijing (for my undergraduate research); throwing rocks at Burma, and more--complete with Disney-themed songs and whatnot! Hahaha... yeah yeah, I know. I am such a dork.
