About Me


• Watch baseball games • Explore cities • Meet people •

This summer, as I have done the last two years, I will be going around part of the US checking out MLB stadiums and seeing a game at each one, this time around the south, plus Toronto and Denver. Staying with someone local from those cities would only make this wonderful trip even that much more memorable. Maybe you could even join me for the game? Or just show me around on my one extra day per city? I don't just wanna see the different stadiums. Or watch baseball games. Or see the cool landmarks. But I wanna spend the days with cool, new, interesting people.

I like breweries, sports, traveling, and doing cool things. Also, I spent a year teaching English in South Korea, and I absolutely loved it. Best year of my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have not hosted yet, but I will! Lodi just isn't a place that many people come visit too often. And as a guest, I'm fine on my own, but I much rather prefer to spend time with the host.

Only the best. I can not complain at all. I enjoy traveling on my own, but then once I'm in a city, seeing it with someone else, getting the inside scoop, and developing a bond with that person supersedes whatever I could do on my own.


Good baseball, good beer, good cities, good people.
