A heartfelt "thank you" for the generosity of all Couchsurfers I have met. To each host who has showed me around town or allowed me to cook them a meal in their kitchen. For each new experience surfers have brought me. For removing that "sinking feeling" one gets when they travel and are completely lost of what to do and where to go. For all the homes away from home I've been given. For all amazing people I've been able to welcome into my home. For the stories we've traded and the memories we've made.
I hope our paths may cross soon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To open my doors to travelers and friends; I have opened my home for the last 10 years, and the last 6 years via CS I've hosted and surfed around the world. I meet amazing people, enjoy their good company, learn about new cultures, and cook lots of food for guests/hosts.
𝔁 people who steal
𝔁 long lines when shopping
𝔁 parents who put their children on leashes
𝔁 the mundane
- street art
- salsa dancing
- board games
- latin music
- scuba diving
- table tennis
- street food
- card games
- good conversation
- social entrepreneurship
- helping others
Music, Movies, and Books
If you'd like to discuss works of music, film, and writing, let's do it over coffee or over a glass of wine.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Climbed a doozy of a mountain in New Mexico at 3am after camping on rocks, with 6ppl in a 3person tent to keep warm. Watched the sunset and it was unbelievably satisfying.

What I Can Share with Hosts
⍟ Drinks: We can enjoy all sorts of things together
⍟ Culture: Couchsurfing is a community and it's much more than a place to stay. It's a culture and it is about sharing culture, food, stories, and learning from one another. It's about growing from interactions and making the world a smaller place. It's about learning we aren't so different, regardless of our beliefs, age, gender, religion, nationality, or socioeconomic background.
⍟ Helping: I have a passion for helping others and giving. If I have physical things with me to share, I'll gladly share my chocolate or talents. Household chores and cleaning up after meals. Happy to cook and share my love of food. I can share my time over laughs as we get to know each other, stories from travels involving the less bright moves I've made in my life.
⍟ Plan/Book Travel: I'm very good at this; people always ask me for help in this area!
⍟ Repair phones, fix computers, teach GoPro, cook/clean, teach to drive manual transmission and much more
⍟ Network: A network of amazing individuals I've met in my travels, should you choose to travel or connect with them. I've connected many people over the years all over the world.
⍟ My Home: I can offer a lovely home to stay in when you visit, cold beers from local breweries, home-cooked meals, and a local's perspective. I am active and you are welcome to join me at local events, bars, etc. Besides offering a safe area, fast wifi, close parking, and wine, you can have a set of keys so you can come and go as you need. When I'm not working, I can drive you around to the hidden gems of my city and introduce you to amazing people. I promise you'll have an unforgettable experience.
