About Me


To sit with penguins.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I travel and I host, and I go to CS events when I am in a new city, and sometimes here in LA too!


Hosted a bit, Traveled a bit. Been to a few events. Highly recommend it all. Time of my life!


I love to dance: salsa, rumba, meregue, samba, bachata, forro, kizomba, and more. I go out dancing and to lots of shows. I love the beach and try to go swim in the ocean at least 1 time per week (during the summer). I love my neighborhood (Koreatown!) I like going out with friends to house parties. I love great food and I go out to new restaurants all of the time (there are soooo many restaurants in los angeles), but I also love to cook. I like wineries and breweries (cheap wine and beer! whats not to like?) I love nature, and I go out hiking and like to picnic in the park, especially when the sun is going down. During the summer there is shakespeare in the park here and I like that too. I workout at the gym a bunch (too much...) and teach group fitness classes in downtown LA and hollywood. You can come to a class if you want. When I am by myself, I like to make music, journal, write poetry (for my eyes only) and watch british quiz shows.
