About Me


Be great with everyone. Not so easy but I intend it!


I'm very easy-going, quiet, not a big talker.

If you already have friends in Miami Beach and plan to spend a lot of time with them, please consider another CouchSurfing host.

Please also read the WHY section below and WHAT I CAN SHARE on the next page for my requests so we are on the same page before you request a stay. Thank you.

I prefer to host people who are not late-nighters. Please see my request in "My Interests."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I see and enjoy CS as exchanging good company, experience, perspectives, and culture with my guest. I prefer to share my apartment with someone who sees the opportunity that CS provides as similar. So, if you're looking to stay with me but spend all of your time with other CouchSurfers in town, I'm happy to recommend affordable hostels for you in Miami Beach please ask.

Of course you can and should hang with other people; just please listen to your intuition on what's proper and respectful. I like to share my home, my city, my time, and my self with the right Surfer. Hopefully you feel the same about your Host.

Also, I can only host one (1) guest at at time.


I'm not a late night person so I ask for you to be home and lights out by 11pm.

I love early happy hour drinks and hope we can do that together. Often. My work schedule is flexible.

I love my vintage Kawasaki motorcycle and like to give rides, a great perspective for you to see the town.

I don't like the sun so you may be on your own at the beach, but I sometimes can be coaxed there for an ocean swim late in the day.
