About Me


To make the world seem smaller!


Hi fellow couch surfers! I studied in Bangkok at Thammasat University for sixth months but finished my degree studying Development Economics at UC Berkeley. I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, and have pretty much lived there my entire life. I've recently moved to New Orleans, LA as of June 2012 and I am excited about this new adventure. I would say that I am a very warm, hospitable, compassion & passionate, opinionated, liberal, person who always manage to enjoy, or try to at least, every situation that I come across. I love my family, my friends, and my dog Otto, whom without them, I wouldn't be as rooted and grounded as I am.


You can't truly live, if you don't yearn to learn!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to get to know more travelers and fellow couch surfer members in New Orleans. I currently am living alone in a two bedroom loft in New Orleans, what was formerly an old mayonnaise plant. I'd like to be hospitable with offering fellow travelers with a bed, advice, and most importantly lending an ear. Sometimes traveling to foreign places may be scary and it's nice to know that there are others out there as well.


I am fairly new to couch surfing in the States. I've only participated in Couch surfing abroad. Although this whole experience may be new to me, I am extremely open to the possibilties of making acquaintances, travel buddies and hopefully friends from this experience.


I love ethnic food particularly spicy food. I love movies, going out with new and old friends, spending time with my dog (how I miss him so much), going to live shows or singers in lounges, etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to list! You shall find out soon, should you ever coach surf with my because music is always on. As for movies, again, there are so many! I mostly read non-fiction but sometimes novels are a great way to transcend place and time.
