About Me

My name is Jacob. I'm originally from Connecticut but have been living in Los Angeles for the past year and a half.

-I'm a strict vegan, solely for ethical reasons.
-I speak a decent amount of Spanish.
-I'm into subcultures.
-I'm into photography.
-I play piano.
-I like biking.
-I'm fascinated with ethnology and world history.
-Music is extremely important to me (yes, I know, cliche). I'm into a lot of different styles and genres and I connect heavily with people on music. So if you're passionate about it, let's talk!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I'd like to travel and couch surf in a few cities this year hopefully. I haven't been on here in almost two years and I'd like to try it again.


I first couch surfed a couple of times while I was traveling in Argentina. It was definitely a new, refreshing experience that made me feel more immersed in the cities I was in.

I also couch surfed once here in the U.S. in Philadelphia. This was probably my favorite CS experience. The girl I was staying with was very cool and introduced me to several of her friends. She also hosted an awesome vegan potluck in her apartment, where I had some super good food and conversations with people.
