About Me


To have a positive impact


My friends describe me as free-spirited. I try to look for the positive in most situations.


Be aware that what you do impacts the world around you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate by thoroughly enjoying the guests I have hosted, and the hosts where I've surfed. I was also quick to become active in my local CS scene, and continue to do so. But more importantly, I embrace the original purpose of couchsurfing: to learn from the people of this world.

Love hanging out with my friends!

I like riding my bike; once the weather is nice, I try to ride as much as possible. I like active vacations, where I get to hike, camp, maybe a little climbing (if there is a category below novice, that would be my level of climbing, but I like the challenge.)

Of course, I love travelling! Nothing better than soaking in the richness of another place.

As for the sedentary stuff: Movies, movies, movies (except for too-stupid chick-flicks, and too-stupid comedies); Reading.

Music: been listening to the Shins lately. Always a place in my heart for The Boss.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking around The Peak in Hong Kong, watching the birds as large as falcons soar through the sky BELOW me.

White Sands National Park in New Mexico (USA) - In the middle of the gravelly desert of southern New Mexico, dunes of white sand for as far as the eye can see.

Teach, Learn, Share

Traveled to foreign lands alone, navigating public transit in Madrid, Athens, and Moscow.
