About Me


My current mission objective is to meet good people and spread good vibes.


Hello world, I'm a musician and aspiring scientist currently residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I work as an ecologist at a small biological consulting company in Berkeley specializing in wetlands mitigation and restoration. Some hobbies of mine are playing music, listening to classic Jamaican reggae, rocksteady, and ska music, sailing, riding my bike, and enjoying natural open spaces. I love traveling and seeing new places, and am currently trying to incorporate the traveling way of life into my normal working life in Berkeley.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am currently only looking to surf. I am between places at the moment and am hoping to take this as an opportunity to meet some interesting people.


None yet, but hoping to start building a good reputation here soon!
