About Me

I'm currently an Engineering student, finding ways to sneak around the globe and find the paths least taken. When I feel most myself, I'm normally wearing torn jeans, a Hawaiian t-shirt, dirt under my fingernails, and a funky trucker hat. I like playing outside and climbing mountains and diving to the depths of oceans. But I also enjoy history, art, and dance.

I believe that the age of exploration has not yet died. There is still so much to discover, and the raw passion of adventure burns within.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Usually because I'm a poor college student! Haha, but I also enjoy traveling while learning wisdoms of the locals. They know much more than any guide book.


I take interest in many things, sometimes its hard to maintain balance, but some of my favorites are:

Salsa Dancing, Synchronized Swimming, Backpacking and Trekking and Camping, Surfing, Sustainable Building designs, Ballets and the Arts, Classical Music, Nature. Nature, Nature, Nature.
