About Me


To be a culture sponge. To see beauty wherever I may be.

Hello! My name is Jason. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and I love it here! My last trip was exploring French Basque Country- surfing the cold waters of La Cote des Basques in Biarritz and onto San Sebastian.

I also do travel videos:
🇧🇴 Bolivia: https://youtu.be/9NB3EN1XzCQ
🇳🇴 Norway: https://youtu.be/47lCAHslR3Y
🇮🇹 Sicily: https://youtu.be/16k3KfcGarU

I travel the world to learn about local customs, photograph great architecture, and learn about histories and traditions. Meeting people and being given the opportunity to be a part of their story is something I truly treasure. We are all connected.

Hope to meet you soon!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

to help provide information to fellow travelers about the San Francisco region particularly in terms of coffeehouses, hangouts, art galleries, distinct neighborhoods, and excellent grub places.

Also here to meet fellow travelers, to share stories, tips, advice- to make the globe that much smaller.


I love art of all types. I'm also magnetized to creative people- always drawn to the act of creation.
