About Me

**Please read info about My Home before requesting to stay or accepting the hosting invitation.**

Hello! My name is Eric and during my solo trips, I've used Couchsurfing to meet locals and hangout with fellow travelers. For someone who is typically jaded and guarded against the intention of others, I've been humbled by the immense generosity and friendship that I've experienced from this international community.

About two years ago, I decided that I would make travel a big part of my life. As an added challenge and as a way for me to deepen my experiences, I took on the ambitious goal of learning the language of each destination. In 2017, I took my first solo trip to Berlin and that's why I started learning German. I've passed my A1 exam in German and I'm currently trying to learn Spanish.

I work at an eCommerce company and on my free time I enjoy cooking and trying new restaurants. I enjoy photography, travel, dancing, reading, drinking with friends, and having discussions about music and art.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

While I'm abroad on a solo trip, I use Couchsurfing to meet locals/travelers and hangout. At home, I'll use Couchsurfing to meet and host people from countries that I'm trying to learn the language of. They have the pleasure of listening to me massacre their language and I get the joy of showing them Austin :)


Parkour, cooking, comic books, listening to records.
