About Me

I am an active and easygoing person hoping to meet locals and travelers all over the world. I enjoy music, film, food, travel, hiking and learning languages. I try to document my experiences through writing, photography, short videos and podcasts. I've traveled in Asia, Europe and North America, and I just returned from backpacking in South America for 6 months. I just moved to LA and would love to explore the city with some new Couchsurfing friends!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am using Couchsurfing to seek out the immersive experience of meeting and staying with locals all over the world. I am hoping to make connections through Couchsurfing that I can maintain and revisit for many years to come.
