About Me

I am a collection of organic molecules called Manny. Born and raised in Southern California, I’m currently residing in Portland, Oregon. Over the last ten years I have lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and New York City. At some point in the not too distant future, I plan on moving to Europe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

While living in Los Angeles a decade ago, my housemate would host people from and it was a great. I have hosted people over the past few years, and would love to continue having a living room culture clash experience.
While traveling I would love to connect with locals with similar interests and cool vibes to share moments in time.
