About Me


To run away from America :-P


2017 update: I am married and have a toddler. So obviously not participating much at this point. I still love the community and all the experiences I've had. Would love to help in any way I can, but obviously not hosting. The rest of this profile is very very very outdated.

I used to travel a lot, but not so much since going back to school in 2011.
Just living day to day and dreaming about traveling some more.
I worked as a paralegal on the weekdays and at a liquor store on the weekends (got to save up money for more adventures)- but now in law school.

Travel wise: I am excited to do the city thing and the crunchy hiking thing too. Really not planning to much, I going to see where the winds take me... hopefully close to the beach


I couldn't wait for success, so I went on ahead without it

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


While i was traveling- i was all about the CS scene... partys, gatherings, hosting, surfing etc...

But back home i've found myself usually to busy to participate... i gotta free up some time and dive back into the scene


Ive met dozens of surfers during my travels... surfed some myself and have been trying to host when i can

Update- it sounds silly, but in bangkok after partying and dancing, i have "hosted" people by having them come back to my guesthouse room to sleep. One night i had 4 cs friends and myself all on the bed (a double)- except i think one person couldnt sleep and left :-P


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, chess, biking, hiking, sports, socializing , and good conversations/arguments.

I am a huge animal lover- but in no way a vegetarian...

Fun times with fun people... sometimes even at fun places!
