About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover Asia and Australia and help CS in the Bay Area.

ABOUT ME

Hello
Telling people about me its always hard. I am from San Francisco, California, but sometimes I don't feel like I am from here. Because I moved so much and study in so many different countries and states. Raised half of my life in California, and the rest in England I am a very well travel guy, I also lived in Sweden and Germany. I call Berlin my home! because I feel like that is where I been living for the past 2 years before coming to the US to study in Washington State. I am Studying International Communication and German. I now am back in the bay area and working a lot.

I love to travel, Party, help others, and try new things, such as, Skydiving, surfing, BMX, I been to a many places in the world where I have learned something new about myself and others, traveling is something so exciting where one learns new things and makes new friends. It changes you in one way or another, and you see the world in a different way, where its not just about you or how much money you have but about the world and how as a human raise we are small compare to the galaxy.

I also like to learn languages, I want to learn as many as I can, I like meeting likeminded people from all over the world. I am a open minded person, I respect others beliefs , ideas and orientations and I like the same in return. I like to have fun, and i am always up to doing pretty much anything cool and crazy.

I think reading what others think about me, its important, so feel free to read and check what my friends and hosts have to say.

PHILOSOPHY

well life is a journey and there are many decisions that you have to make and some times you make the wrong ones, but you learn from them, and that's what matters, i am a person that loves the world and likes people no matter what, my motto is "life is short play naked" meaning; we need to make the best out of everyday like it was your last one.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think CS is an amazing site, I met the most amazing people and made friends and went places that i never thought possible. I am super excited for my next trips, and i can't wait to meet and see new lands and cultures. I try to help people who dont have a COUCH in the BAY AREA and feel free to CONTACT ME if you need an EMERGENCY COUCH.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

SO far I been a member of CS for 6 years and I have had so many great experiences. Every time I travel I use Couchsurfing and I talk to people about it if they don't know but most travelers know about it. I have made friends and even spend Christmas with CS people for 2010 and it was amazing, I am glad to be part of such awesome community and help others.

Interests

I love languages my goal is to learn 10 languages. I am learning Swedish and Dutch right now. I learned most of the languages I know online, also living in that country helped me a lot, also online friends. and also improving my Italian. But the language i love the most is Portuguese, i am pretty much fluent on it, i love Brazil. why? .. great friendly people that rise about their problems, the language is amazing and beautiful, and the culture is to die for ;) .
