About Me


To successfully move to San Diego, California


I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago (inner city). I am so sick of the Chicago winters. in 2005, I developed hives from a gluten diet along with exposure to the cold. How lucky! So, I want to move somewhere warm. San Diego is supposedly one of the warmest places to live; and it is supposedly beautiful.


I believe that life is special and we should maximize our potential. I think by moving to San Diego, giving up my cozy job and life here, is a huge part of "living" my life. I don't want to be old one day and regret never experiencing what it would have been like to live somewhere completely different. I want to see the country as well on my travels to San Diego. I treat people with compassion because I believe we all come from the same place; so it would be like hurting yourself to hurt another.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My participation in the CS Project is to promote this so that others, like myself, can move to anywhere they wish without fear of failure (money, job problems, or meeting the wrong people). So hopefully, I can help ensure that we are all here to help each other


I enjoy martial arts, museums, sports, the unknown/metaphysics, fiction, games, traveling, volunteering. Like anyone else, I enjoy movies and music, hangning out with good company (family or friends).

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies... I love great performances in movies (well acted). I love a wide variety from comedies, to action, to suspense, to drama.
