About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To conquer my fear of heights by jumping off a̶ ̶p̶l̶a̶n̶e̶ ̶o̶r̶ a tall bridge with a thick elastic rope strapped to my ankles. And to have the biggest hot sauce collection in the world!

ABOUT ME

I'm an ENFP on the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator - do what you will with that information.

I just moved to SF back in 2011 for work at an internet startup somewhere in SoMa. Before this, I was in Singapore for a year and a half working for a design studio. I was born and raised in the Philippines.

I familiarize myself with wherever I find myself in by walking around aimlessly, or doing long bike rides in the neighborhood, just like how I did it in Singapore, and now here in SF.

I love peanut butter, bacon (who doesn't?) and both in a sandwich. OMNOM.

PHILOSOPHY

Live life without any regrets.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting people, mostly, attending CS meetups in SF (and wherever I find myself in). Oh, and surfing, when I do get to travel.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted a couple of surfers and so far I've had nothing but really interesting stories and surfers. I hope to be able to surf on other CSers couches someday when I find the time to do it.

Interests

Bars, Friday nights, happy hours, biking in the city, discovering nice hidden shops, walking around aimlessly, doing TV series marathons, roadtrips, snowboarding (just recently)
