About Me

I am currently shooting a documentary across the United States while I make my move back to Brooklyn, NY.

I was born in Monterey, California and I have moved around pretty much every 2- 4 years for my whole life. I've lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, China, South Korea and a few other places.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories. It is crazy how each person has their own story and that they are completely unique.

I'm travelling through the US South while I move back to Brooklyn, NY--a US road trip has been a dream of mine to do--and I want to meet locals along the way. I'd love to reciprocate the CS favor as soon as I get back to Brooklyn and settle in.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Currently a lot of Childish Gambino and Spanish and Korean indie music and Thelonious Monk. I like almost anything though.


Office Space is the only DVD I own.

I watch a lot of documentaries and a lot of movies--the good and the terrible ones. I'm a cinephile.


F: The Pregnant Widow
NF:Letters to a Young Contrarian
Don't worry, I read a lot. There is always a book within arms reach from me. I'm a bibliophile.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

How about currently doing?

I quit my job and will be driving across the Southern US filming my first documentary that will be about regular Americans.
