About Me


To have as many experiences, meet as many people, and share as much as I can


Hi I'm Jacob. I'm 21 years old and was born and raised in Texas, but please don't hold that against me. I'm really into enjoying/observing art, especially Music, though I'm not too good at creating it. I'm currently studying Biomedical engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. I love meeting different types of people especially those who can teach me something new about their culture or tell me about their unique experiences. My favorite types of people are those who you can feel an immediate feeling of friendship and trust with and I do my best to try to be this type of person. so please come hang out with me so we can learn from each other and create some new experiences and memories with each other.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just couchsurfed my way around europe and now its time for me to repay the favor by hosting people in my great city of Austin, Texas!!!!


I surfed around Europe, and had such an amazing time meeting so many interesting, and different types of people. Now I want to continue being involved with the couchsurfing community by hosting people in my hometown of Austin, TX and hopefully couchsurf around the United States and the rest of the world!!!(eventually lol)


MUSIC!, movies, art of any kind, nature(I like hiking and swimming), hanging out, laughing, feeling like I'm making the best of my time in this life, learning, science, philosophy, harry potter, knowing I'm in the middle of having a great story to tell later, realizing new things about myself
