About Me


I just graduated from University of California, Berkeley in Economics. During college, I studied abroad in Milan at Universita Bocconi. My time in Europe sparked my interest to see the world, meet new people and immerse myself in different cultures.

I grew up in San Jose, California and plan to move to San Francisco in the fall for work in management consulting. Though my career is quite important to me, I kind of see it as a sacrifice to the corporate world to enable myself to pursue other aspirations such as living in a number of different international cities, becoming a high school economics teacher, and owning my own restaurant.

I'm a pretty easy going person and tend to smile or laugh more than I talk.


Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As a new member, I'm just getting a feel of things, but will initially start off as a surfer in South America


I'm new to CouchSurfing so I plan to initially surf and then host when I'm back from traveling.
