About Me


To open myself to new cultures and environments. To appreciate through experience other countries . To meet new people and network friends all over the world. Too boldly go where I have never been before. 2B


I like to travel, and I generally have a humanitarian approach to my environment. My friends are like family members and my family members are like good friends. I love to be around people, to chill, or to party. I stay positive, indiscriminate, and rational. My heart is in my hometown, but I have a strong traveling spirit!


I have not declared a personal philosophy, for I am continuing to grow and learn new ways and perspectives. I am ever evolving, and when I reach a point in the future where I can feel set in my ways. Then I will be dead.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to use CS for all my traveling to meet new people and see their side of the city.


I've had a wonderful time with all my surfing and hosting! Along the way between cs and just the wonders of traveling and meeting new people, I have grown to especially enjoy hosting of touring bands, and surfing w/musicians!


I like playing music, all kinds of music, all kinds of instruments, I have more experience on some then others. I love art, but I generally dont make art of my own. My favorite art pieces were made by people I've met. Traveling is very important to me right now. I am also constantly studying a field you could consider "alternative research".

Music, Movies, and Books

I especially prefer local music. I'm a sci-fi nut. I like to read books inspired by and or written by an extra terrestrial race, and there is more out there then you would expect.
